The Internet Reacts To The New Spider-Man: Far From Home Costume


Next year, Spider-Man: Far From Home will be sending Peter Parker through a series of European cities, and just like you would for any holiday, it seems that the web-slinger has packed an extra set of clothes.

While Spidey’s dark stealth suit has been viewable online for a few weeks now, a new costume has now got the internet talking with its stylish red-and-black design. This latest getup was seen on the New York set of the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel, and while the outfit itself seems to have gone down fine with fans, the surplus of costumes in the wall-crawler’s MCU saga is starting to prove a little divisive.

On the one hand, some Twitters users feel that all these clothing changes are getting a bit much.

Then again, plenty of fans are happy to see Peter continue to find new ways to diversify his wardrobe.

It’s certainly true that the Spider-Man movies, along with the recent Avengers: Infinity War, have come up with a lot of excuses for Tom Holland to update his look. But if this is all in service of selling toys, hopefully the film itself can at least be entertaining enough to distract from such commercial calculation.

While it’s hard to see what in-universe purpose the new red-and-black outfit might serve, the stealth suit looks like it could be a practical necessity as Spidey does some sneaking around a European carnival. Evidently, things don’t stay subtle for long, as set videos indicate that some explosive spectacle will be ensuing, and that the villainous Mysterio could have something to do with it.

We’ll see how and why Peter acquires his next set of apparel when Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters on July 5th, 2019.
