Spidey Turns 50: The Many Costumes of Spider-Man!


Spider-Man (2002)

The first incarnation of Spider-Man as seen on the big screen. Sam Raimi’s films were heavily influenced by the original series of comics and it shows, except for the lack of webbing under the arms in the costume. The wrestling outfit, however, was even a much more modern approach to the idea.


The ‘Final’ Costume (2003)

In “The Amazing Spider-Man” #500, Peter has a vision of the beginning and the potential end of his career as Spider-Man. This possible future has Spider-Man simply in a mask, gloves, and reversible jacket. Two issues later, he receives this very outfit from Leo Zelinsky the Super-Hero Tailor.


The Iron Spider (2006)

This suit was given to Peter by Iron Man himself, Tony Stark. The suit features a lot of different modifications from the typical costume. In addition to the mechanical spider-arms, the suit has gliding capabilities, built-in emergency scanner, audio/visual amplifiers, a cloaking device, and much more.


Spider-Man 3 (2007)

There weren’t any changes made to the suit between the first two movies, but in the final film in the series, Peter got a hold of the fan favorite black suit. The primary difference between the comics and the film is how it resembles his old suit but is simply black.


Spider-Man Noir (2009)

Within an alternate universe and set in the Great Depression era wherein a young Peter Parker is bitten by a spider and given some spider-like abilities from a Spider god. The primary difference in this Spider-Man and the regular one is he is unable to climb walls and he carries a gun.
