Marc Webb released a cryptic looking video test footage recently that made it onto Youtube. The clip shows what appears to be the new Spiderman lenses being used for the sequel and they’re bigger, no longer solid and have honeycomb-like holes pierced through them. I guess Spidey finally realized that only jerks wear sunglasses at night.
Here’s the footage.
I don’t know what brought upon the change, but as the late Bruce Wayne once said, “I’m not talking fashion, Mr. Fox, so much as function.” I do hope the changes serve some kind of purpose and that they move towards a more traditional look. The spider webbing motif is already flamboyant enough on its own that I think they can reduce some of its flair.
