CBM: Could you tell me about your thought process on these alternate Spidey costumes?

Kelton Cram: First, make the body type look younger. Secondly, they wanted some recall to the original suit from The Amazing Spider Man comic. Lastly, they wanted to see lines in the suit, and different takes on the eyes/goggles.

CBM: When designing costumes for a film like this, do you think about the actor's comfort?

Kelton Cram: Yes, the suit needs to bend in the right places. However, at this stage it's mostly about the idea. Once the suit is approved, the real work starts - fitting to the actor's body.

CBM: For the web shooters, is it design over function?

Kelton Cram: Yes, exactly. They wanted to see ideas that could be technically 'clunky' in real life. Usually it's function first.

CBM: For a young artist that wants to become a concept artist, like yourself, what programs would you encourage them to master?

Kelton Cram: I strongly feel it is essential to master Photoshop and Zbrush at this point. Any other software just adds to your belt.

CBM: What other projects do you have coming up?

Kelton Cram: I worked on 9 films that will be released this year. To list a few: Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Fox's Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending. Those are the ones I'm looking forward to seeing the most!

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. The film will star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.

WinterSoldier33 - 5/3/2014, 8:31 PM

13echo - 5/3/2014, 8:31 PM
D'oh
nova480s - 5/3/2014, 8:32 PM
those web shooter designs are pretty cool
AnthonyLantern - 5/3/2014, 8:33 PM
It's funny to see stuff like this compared to the final product. So much can change
DoubleDion - 5/3/2014, 8:34 PM
What a terrible movie... felt like I was watching the first one all over again CHRIST!!!!!!!
GuardianAngel - 5/3/2014, 8:34 PM
Seeing this movie tomorrow. Lost a lot of my excitement after rewatching TASM. Not so good the 2nd time around.
DrDoom - 5/3/2014, 8:36 PM
The suit design used in the movie was perfect.

Too bad the movie itself was garbage.
WinterSoldier33 - 5/3/2014, 8:36 PM
@shelfporn

the amazing spider man 2 was awesome, it maid me like spider man again.

although i will say the origin story for electro could have been better and rhino was not needed


i would give the movie a 8.5/10

what would you give it
Whiteandgold - 5/3/2014, 8:38 PM
Wow great movie. As good as CA2, I liked it a bit more though cause of the chemistry between gwen and peter.
WelcomeBackFrank - 5/3/2014, 8:39 PM
I don't get all the hate for this movie. I'd give it a solid 8/10. It's no "Spider-Man 2" but it's a lot better than "Spider-Man 3."
CaptShipwreck - 5/3/2014, 8:44 PM
The movie was all over the place ...
Bodwulf - 5/3/2014, 8:45 PM
You know what i love about being Spider-man? You are miserable. Any fleeting happiness is just a set up for disappointment later. You have no best friend. No parents. No relationship that does not end in break up or death. No successful job even though your a genius. All you got in this world is superpowers and Aunt May. 5 movies of living one sad moment after the other.
KingPatel - 5/3/2014, 8:47 PM
These are nice, but the suit they used was perfect.
maninfinesuit - 5/3/2014, 8:49 PM
Great film. You lot are crazy.
Indy - 5/3/2014, 8:50 PM
Thank god they didn't use any of those I love the suit in the movie.
Nick56 - 5/3/2014, 8:51 PM
The movie was much better than the first TASM and restored some hope in this franchise for me, i'd give it somewhere between a 3/5 & 3.5/5 . These designs are cool.
WruceBayne - 5/3/2014, 8:52 PM
These costumes look better than what they used. I guess the third one we're going to get the Symbiote suit, huh?
WinterSoldier33 - 5/3/2014, 8:54 PM
@whiteandgold

yep me to , i actually was disappointed that there was not enough winter soldier in the movie
ATrueHero1987 - 5/3/2014, 8:54 PM
Saw this movie earlier. While doesn't movie isn't outright bad but it's not a perfect 10 or "TDK" of the Spidey films. It had some cool moments....and also corny/cheesy moments. This movie learned from SOME of the mistakes of the last movie......only to make even bigger mistakes. A 6.5-7 is my rating for TASM 2.

@WelcomeBackFrank

Yeah, I agree it gets an 8/10' from me too. It kind of reminded me of the Spectacular Spider-Man episodes. Looking forward to the next film. It's not the best Comic book movie nor is it the worst but it was most certainly fun and compelling seeing how most of these characters will be set up for future films.

I think we'll see the symbiote make it's appearance in the third film when he takes on the sinister 6 the first time. Or at least the first half of the six.
MementoMori - 5/3/2014, 8:57 PM
The concept art is cool, but I think we can all agree that the suit they used in this film is perfection. I actually have interest in seeing this one (after having none for the first movie). However, some of the reviews of this film has left me a little leery.
antoineflemming - 5/3/2014, 9:01 PM
Seriously? After the backlash they got for the TASM1 suit, why would they have designed anything BUT the classic suit?
TheGDBatman1 - 5/3/2014, 9:02 PM
I just seen the movie it was pretty good
TheRationalNerd - 5/3/2014, 9:04 PM
I'm wondering of the symbiote suit will be more of a shinier elastic looking piece or will they just go the route of spider man 3 and make it solid black threading. I would really like to see that shiny black material. It has to look alienated.
California - 5/3/2014, 9:05 PM
I liked the design they went with for the movie. These guys are idiots to design something so different than the comics. If it ain't broke... Don't try to put your 'own stamp' on something "just because."
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/3/2014, 9:05 PM
In the next reboot( which they've already got I'm sure) needs to have the sinister eyes.
SuperCat - 5/3/2014, 9:10 PM
Loving the web shooter designs.
DEVLIN712 - 5/3/2014, 9:15 PM
That second design looks a lot like Miles Morales' costume, and they said they wanted to make the character look younger. I know Avi Arad said Peter'd never be changed but it just makes you think...
ToxicCap - 5/3/2014, 9:15 PM
The third suit design is very Superior Spiderman.
xXkryptoniteXx - 5/3/2014, 9:18 PM
First one looks good but the one on the film is great and fine for me. Just watch my second view on it because of friends dragging me back to it. Second time, I enjoyed it more than the first. It was just too long in the beginning but still better than the first one.
RaleighAntrobus - 5/3/2014, 9:23 PM
Movie sucked. I can't understand some of you, it's like you have no idea how to tell a good film from a bad one.
MightyZeus - 5/3/2014, 9:24 PM
The Spidey suits don't look that bad but i'm glad the studio went with the design which was in the film.
yonny616 - 5/3/2014, 9:28 PM
Movie was good, Goblin was rushed.
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/3/2014, 9:30 PM
If they cut out Electro and have gobby the whole movie, it would've been a great film.
CaptainAmerica31 - 5/3/2014, 9:38 PM
Who is watching Andrew Garfield kick ass in SNL?!?!?! God damn he's actually funny as [frick]! So glad he's spider-man. Favorite CBM actor by far.
Dunejedi - 5/3/2014, 9:40 PM
They prolly coulda shaved a few bucks off their bloated budget if they weren't hiring Conceptual Illustrators to reinvent the wheel. Especially considering they went with a slightly watered-down version of Ditko's iconic design. Just send him a check. And be sure to say, "Thank you".
ThePowerCosmic - 5/3/2014, 9:46 PM
RaleighAntrobus

That's exactly what I was thinking. The story was so bad and Electros lines and character were embarrassingly horrible. Goblin looked like crap and was jammed in....can't imagine how people could think this was a great film.

What film are these people watching?
Spock0Clock - 5/3/2014, 9:51 PM
I like the first. I really wish they wouldn't have been so conservative with their ultimate design. A movie adaptation is the perfect place to try a new take on the classic design, but just reproducing the classic with ever so slight modifications is a bit dull.
