The black and gold suit seen in the previous reveal gets the spotlight here in the form of a new Hot Toys release, as the company revealed images of the figure on its Facebook page. The incredibly detailed design is pretty striking, and it’s packed with details that could lead to much bigger things. For starters, it seems to be the upgraded red and black suit with all of its wiring exposed. As for why his fingers are still red, Twitter user @yipdogman speculated, “It’s probably the under layer of the suit and doesn’t have an under layer around the fingers. Just my guess.”
Then there’s the small issue of the gold gauntlets strapped to his wrists, which look like they can be used to channel magic webs through them. @MaptainR suggested on Twitter that, “it’s gotta be enchanted for a reason. maybe multiverse traversal?” Well it definitely looks similar in design and color to the Sling-Rings worn by Doctor Strange and the sorcerers of Kamar-Taj — and who better to help the Web-Slinger get across the multiverse than the Sorcerer Supreme?
But the most interesting observation was made by The Direct, in a piece that notes that the background of the images seems to be styled after Tobey Maguire’s “Spider-Man” and Andrew Garfield’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” One shot shows Spidey swinging through the streets of New York with a similar lighting to the Maguire era, while another seems to show him fighting someone off-screen in Times Square, New York — where Garfield fought Jamie Foxx’s Electro. It’s an interesting connection, especially since Electro will also appear in the sequel.
Surely the “No Way Home” trailer has to arrive soon. Watch this space for updates when it does.
