Growing up, I loved Spider-Man. He was my favourite Marvel character, and Sam Raimi's first installment in the Spider-Man trilogy was the first live-action superhero movie I had ever watched. The whole simplicity and innocence of Peter Parker really captivated me, and for the longest time I really thought that Tobey Maguire was actually Peter Parker and he could actually shoot webs and scale buildings (I was in Kindergarten). But what captivated me more was his suit. I spent hours doodling it, trying perfect his mask and his patterns (alongside Batman and Superman). The iconic red and blue suit was left imprinted in my mind, and it blew my mind again when the symbiotic suit was unveiled in Spider-Man 3.

Then came along The Amazing Spider-Man, featuring Andrew Garfield as the new Spidey. With the black eyes, and the external webshooter, I definitely enjoyed the modern look on the classic outfit (although the web-shooter was how it originally was). Although I did have a hard time adjusting seeing a new actor putting own my beloved suit, the new suit grew on me (no pun intended). It was sleek and slim, and felt more acrobatic, which was the whole point. After all, a non acrobatic Spidey is not a Spidey.

When I heard that Spider-Man getting a reboot in "Captain America: Civil War", I was like "C'mon, just drop it". I wasn't really happy with TASM2, and it just felt like they were dragging and slowly killing my childhood superhero. As the Civil War trailer, featuring the new Spider-Man, dropped, we all got glimpse of the new Spidey. I hated it. When I first saw it, my thoughts were " Ugh! What is this! This looks way too animated, and the CGI doesn't look realistic at all! It looks like it was posted halway through the process!". But after watching the trailer a couple of times, I started to love the new suit. Spidey's eyes aren't fixated to his mask anymore, and I loved that! But I noticed something else. When his eyes squinted, I heard a mechanical sound. And I immediately thought, "STARK!". There's no way that Tony Stark himself didn't have any link with Spidey's new suit; after all, Spidey is on his team. I saw some pictures online, and I loved the stripes on his arms and shins, the suit definitely looks fresh. No engraved patterns, no engraved spider emblem- just like the comics. I am currently awaiting for more details on the new Spidey suit, as what I saw on the trailer was never quite enough. With all this being said, this is why Spidey's Civil War suit might just be my favourite Spidey Suit yet.
