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.

Wow you guys LOVED the Superior Spider-Man inspired costume I posted yesterday! Thank you for all the love. Here are a few more Superior Spider-Man inspired designs. Yesterday I didn't give proper credit to artist @ramosland for designing Superior Spider-Man for the comics. Fortunately the comic book community are passionate about accuracy so thanks for setting me straight folks. 👍 I know this design was also inspired by @thealexrossart suit done for the first Spider-Man movie. I'll be posting the full suits on my Twitter @meinerdingart I'm getting ready to head down to San Diego this evening. Looking forward to being around lots of inspiring artists this weekend, including @ramosland who will be at Booth #5017 I'll be at Booth #5555, come say hi! #spidermanhomecoming #spiderman #marvel #sdcc #instart #conceptart #ryanmeinerding #marvelcinematicuniverse #humbertoramos #alexross #tomholland #comicbooks
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.
Directed by Jon Watts, Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Zendaya, Jacob Batalon, Jake Gyllenhaal, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Remy Hii, and Tony Revolori. It is scheduled to be released on July 5, 2019.
