Joe Quesada teases Marvel’s "awesome" take on Tom Holland’s Spider-Man costume

Talking to IGN at the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada dropped some very interesting hints about the costume Tom Holland will wear when he debuts as Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Asked to talk about the suit, he said: “It’s awesome. I’ve seen a lot of design work that’s been done on the costume. I think there are elements of it that are really going to blow people away where they are going to go ‘Ah, that’s Marvel doing Spider-Man.” What could he be referring to there?

Well, one part of Spider-Man’s costume which has never been brought to the big screen is the underarm webbing, a design element which has only been used sporadically over the years, but is loved by fans because it was a big part of his look back in the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko days.

Unfortunately, Quesada wouldn’t reveal anything more than that, but did express his excitement to see Spider-Man return home.

“It’s Spider-Man. What’s not exciting about that? I can’t imagine there’s a person on the planet Earth that can’t relate to some aspect of Spider-Man or Peter Parker, and he is for all intents and purposes, he is Marvel’s Mickey Mouse. He is the icon of so much of what we have was built upon, so to create that movie along with our Sony partners it’s phenomenally exciting. I know Kevin Feige and his team have some great ideas. Some wonderful theories that we have all chimed in on.”

Spider-Man is of course expected to first appear in Captain America: Civil War, so we’ll hopefully get to see this costume sooner rather than later…
