Today the internet exploded with the release of the new ‘Captain America: Civil War’ trailer.  But it wasn’t so much the trailer itself that had fans talking.  It was the first glimpse of the rebooted Spider-Man entering the MCU.

I have to say, I didn’t mind the new look.  But I’m not sure if it was just my excitement for seeing Spidey back in the MCU or if it was actually the costume.  Some fans have taken to social media to share some not so great opinions.


Others have defended the new look saying that its a throwback to the old school spidey costumes, with the smaller eyes.


I personally think, we fan-boys and girls tend to jump to conclusions about the introduction of anticipated heroes.  Most times we get an “Out of context” look at what may be an introductory costume or look.  Directors often do this in cinema to get fans talking.  Negative or positive, we are talking.  And that makes for ticket sales.


In the end, I believe Spider-Man will evolve and his look will eventually resemble what we are accustom to seeing on screen.  We have to remember this incarnation is starting as a high school kid who is trying to find himself in the world of MCU.

What do you think of the new look of Spidey? Let us know in the comments!
