Spider-Man's rejected black costume look from SPIDER-MAN 3"
As if fans needed a reason to hate Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man 3" even more, see what Sam Raimi's more comic-accurate black costume suit for old Spidey would've looked like.
A few weeks ago, the Spider-Man Crawlspace website put up an image of what Spider-Man's black "alien" costume would have looked like in the 2007 film "Spider-Man 3". The film was criticized for many reasons, from having too much going on to the poor treatment of Eddie Brock/Venom and ruining Spidey's origin by revealing it was Sandman who really killed Uncle Ben by accident (... what?!?), but while it made the least amount of money for Sam Raimi's Spidey trilogy in the U.S., it ended up being a big box office success worldwide.
Here's the picture as to how Spider-Man's black suit would have looked like:
I know, it wouldn't have made "Spider-Man 3" any better, but I'm still not sure why this look was rejected. Online rumors say it's because the suit was made out of latex and didn't work well. Other rumors say Raimi didn't like the look of the suit and he wanted to keep the webbing on the black suit. Whatever the reason, I'm sure fans will now be wondering why this suit that is much more faithful to the comic books was rejected. What do you guys think of this suit compared to the one we ultimately got in "Spider-Man 3"? Do you think Raimi and company made the right call?
