Spider-Man's Squinty Eyes Possibly Explained!
O ye, of little faith!
Yeah, that applies to yours truly and my other cohorts and Cosmic Book News!
Earlier today, I wrote up an article how we weren't too thrilled with the look of the new Marvel Tom Holland Spider-Man costume revealed in the Captain America: Civil War trailer (watch below), which quickly went viral (see the below Facebook post). My main gripe was the movement of Spider-Man's eyes, as I felt it came off too cartoonish and didn't make a lot of sense.
However, now a rather possible fathomable explanation has been pointed out to me that, if true, is actually really cool.
DC Comics and Marvel artist Brad Walker pointed out on his Twitter that the squinty eyes of Spider-Man could be -- camera lenses! So it's possible what we see in the trailer is Spider-Man actually snapping photographs of The Avengers in action! Fans of Spider-Man will recall that Peter used to have a belt camera, and we do see this version of the costume is spot on with the comics, so Marvel Studios may simply have given Spidey a more contemporary upgrade. Makes a lot of sense. It's also been pointed out by a few of you that this Spider-Man costume could be an early version created by Peter with further upgrades to come.
I suppose we have Nolan to blame for our ultra-realistic snobby opinions!
Update: Check out a cool fan manip below of what Spider-Man's eyes might look like with the lenses fully open.
Squint complainers: you accepted all along that he had a tiny camera on his belt buckle, taking pictures through... https://t.co/Dot2TlBGAU— Brad Brad Walker (@IAmBradWalker) March 11, 2016
"Captain America: Civil War" has a May 6, 2016 release date directed by Anthony and Joe Russo starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Frank Grillo, Paul Bettany, Don Cheadle, Emily VanCamp, William Hurt, Martin Freeman and Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
Captain America: Civil War picks up where Avengers: Age of Ultron left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain.
