Spider-Man's New Far From Home Suit May Be Based On This Concept Art

With photographic evidence that Tom Holland's wall-crawler will don a new black-and-red suit in Spider-Man: Far From Home, it appears as if the sequel takes some design cues from the Superior Spider-Man comic. However, Marvel Studios concept artist Ryan Meinerding may have also had a hand in the new threads, dating back to an unused design for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Meinerding shared similar designs last year that drew influence from Humberto Ramos' Superior Spider-Man concept, which in turn borrowed from an unused Alex Ross design for 2002's Spider-Man, and from the Ben Reilly revamp. The black-and-red suit ultimately wasn't used for Homecoming, but it may very well have made its way into its sequel, with a few changes.

In the comics, the costumes were used by Otto Octavius (aka Doctor Octopus) and Ben Reilly during their tenures as Spider-Man. For the former, when he took over Spider-Man's body, Octavius created two new costumes for his crusader against crime, the latter of which has more or less become his definitive look from this era, and was based on the Alex Ross design. The latter, created by veteran Spider-Man artist Mark Bagley, was used by Ben Reilly to distinguish himself from Peter Parker, who had retired as a superhero.
