Earlier today Sony revealed a first look at the new costume in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The image they shared indicated that Marc Webb's sequel had moved back to a costume that looks almost exactly like the one in Sam Raimi's Spidey movies. I speculated that the image was released in order to get out ahead of spy photos.

Everything about The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is shaping up positively. I honestly believe that everybody involved in the film knows the first movie didn't work, and everything I've heard indicates that the script is actually... good. I know, it's Orci and Kurtzman, but this is the buzz!
