Civil War Concept Art Reveals Spider-Man’s Early Costume Design

On the heels of recent concept art from Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel Studios artist Ryan Meinerding has unveiled an early, unused design for Spider-Man’s costume from Captain America: Civil War.

As Meinerding states in his Instagram post, this design was largely based on the Ben Reilly costume from the comic books, featuring exaggerated black lines and a darker color scheme. Considering the previous cinematic versions of Spider-Man had been based on versions of the Peter Parker costume, it makes sense that Meinerding would experiment by pulling from other wall-crawlers.

So because I can't show any new artwork right now and apparently because everyone is digging the unused Valkyrie and unused Hulk hair styles, here is a unused Spider-Man design. This was done for Civil War, which seems forever ago now. This design pass is inspired by the Ben Reilly costume which was originally designed by the awesome @officialmarkbagleyart for the comics! It's fun trying out different size spiders and playing with the web designs when I'm designing Spidey suits for the MCU. Head over to my Twitter where I'll have the full suit uploaded 👍#spiderman #captainamericacivilwar #spidermanhomecoming #spidey #marvelcomics #marvelstudios #benreilly #conceptart #costumedesign #superhero #marvelcinematicuniverse

The final version of the costume isn’t far off from Meinerding’s vision, though. Peter Parker was given a smaller logo on the chest, and the colors were brightened up a bit. The studio clearly wanted a much more classic look for the character for his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut. He is still sporting the web canisters on his belt as well as the home-made web shooters on his wrists.
