New Disneyland Attraction Gives Spider-Man a New Costume
Spider-Man is about to make his Disney Parks debut with new attractions opening at Disneyland’s California and Paris locations. Now, we know exactly what the wallcrawler’s costume will look like when he invites visitors on a new interactive adventure later this year. Attractions Magazine (via ComicBook.com) has premiered the first look at Spidey’s Disneyland duds, which you can view above.
Disney recruited Ryan Meinerding to design Spidey’s threads for the attraction. Since Meinerding is Marvel Studios’ head of visual development, it’s no surprise that the suit resembles Tom Holland’s MCU outfit. Despite the similarities, there are still a few noticeable differences to the new design. Most notably, the spider emblem is larger on both sides and the webshooters are silver instead of black.
“It has been the highlight of my career to design all of Spider-Man’s suits for the most recent films,” said Meinerding. “Bringing him to life through Tony Stark’s capable design aesthetic was a true joy, but working with the Walt Disney Imagineering team to develop a look for Spidey that reflects the innovation of a team of young geniuses really brings him to a new level. And knowing that park guests can get up close to that suit and really take in all the detail that astounding Imagineers packed into it means that we have truly brought a new version of the character to life.”
Additionally, Disney provided a synopsis for the ride that Spider-Man will be headlining:
“The Avengers are setting up new Headquarters and training facilities around the globe to inspire all potential recruits willing to step up and become something more. As part of this global initiative, Tony Stark has founded the Worldwide Engineering Brigade – or WEB for short – to develop advancements in super-powered technology, including new enhancements to Spider-Man’s suit as their debut project. By bringing together the world’s brightest young inventors, the WEB is creating new interfaces that will empower all of us to join the ranks of Earth’s Mightiest.”
