Spider-Man has donned dozens of suits over the years, so it’s no surprise to hear Marvel Studios had troubling picking a favorite. When Spider-Man: Homecoming swung into theaters this month, the film had Peter Parker wear his traditional suit. However, the teenager could have donned a totally different suit if Ryan Meinerding’s concept art has anything to say.
Over online, the Marvel Studios concept artist revealed a look at the various costume designs he did for the newest Marvel film. Meinerding did a mock-up of Peter in a suit inspired by Superior Spider-Man, and he also inked one which harkens to Scarlet Spider.
The artwork, which can be seen below, shows Spider-Man wearing a very different costume than the one fans ultimately saw. The image is meant to show Peter’s homemade costume as it combines red sweats, a blue cut-off hoodie, and fingerless gloves. The DIY aesthetic looks more than a little cozy, and it is sourced from Marvel’s Scarlet Spider run.
If you are not familiar with Scarlet Spider, then you should know the character has along history with Spider-Man. The moniker was first used by Benjamin Reilly, a clone of Spider-Man created by Jackal. Ben wanted to become a hero like his progenitor Spider-Man, so he took up the Scarlet Spider mantle. Joe Wade, Kaine, and even Peter himself have donned the Scarlet Spider costume over the years, so the concept art is a nice nod to Marvel’s rich past.
