A Mysterious Twitter Feed May Have Just Shown Us the New Spider-Man Costume
Tom Holland has either begun filming his part as Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War or he’s about to head off to the Atlanta set soon. In either case, it won’t be long before we get our first look at the new Spidey outfit. You think all of those photos from the Suicide Squad set were bad? Just you wait. The new, official Marvel Cinematic Universe Spider-Man is going to attract paparazzi like nothing else. So expect Marvel Studios to beat them to the punch by releasing an official image before long. But what if they have already been secretly, quietly, teasing the costume under our noses?
This amusing conspiracy theory comes to us from Birth Movies Death, who have uncovered a Twitter account claiming to represent Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Civil War. This is strange because the Russos already have a Twitter account, albeit one that they never use. Although the account’s follower count has begun to increase over the past few hours, the earliest followers included a few Marvel Studios players and Civil War crew members. So take from that what you will.
Here’s what that post suggests (and what we’re going to humor for a few minutes): This account does belong to the Russo brothers and they’ve been using it to tease their new movie without anyone noticing. The bulk of their tweets could have easily come from a film set – images of props, sets, bullet holes in glass, and a few letters that could very well be part of the phrase “The Sokovia Accords,” a mysterious something-something that was teased in the end credits teaser after Ant-Man.
But then you come to this:
Which looks like a goggle. Or a belt buckle. On top of red material. And speaking of red material...
Yes, that is red and black cloth in that standard superhero fabric texture that every comic book movie character as access to. And then...
That certainly looks like a close up shot of a monitor and yes, it looks like it could be Spider-Man’s eye. So here’s something to chew on: do these three pictures represent Tom Holland’s Spider-Man costume? Does this mean that Spidey’s new costume will be red and black costume instead of red and blue? Will he be wearing goggles? Put on your tinfoil hats and start prepping your favorite conspiracy theories. Things are officially getting weird. Captain America: Civil War opens on May 6, 2016.
