Marvel fans were surprised today when leaked set photos from the production of Spider-Man: Far From Home revealed Peter Parker would be donning yet another suit in addition to the previously leaked stealth suit seen on set in Europe.
Naturally, fans have a lot to say about the newly revealed black and red costume seen in set photos as Spider-Man swings into the air with Zendaya’s Michelle. The costume, which could be based on unused concept art from the previous Spider-Man film, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is drawing Superior Spider-Man costume comparisons from fans.
You can check out some of the reactions below.

This is basically an MCU rendition of the Superior Spider-Man costume. pic.twitter.com/HEXf1cMJc4

The leaked (new) Spider-Man costume looks somewhat similar to the a piece of concept art before Captain America: Civil War. There's more red in the actual one, but they looked similar. #spidermanfarfromhome pic.twitter.com/JTZfrSvgb8

This is a great homage to that incredibly short lived era of Spider-Man costumes, back when blue was used for shading black objects in the 60s comics but people just thought it was dark blue. Amazing! pic.twitter.com/mMtIk3FsFP

It might be my least favorite live action Spider-Man suit

Aw come on, man. It's MCU Spider-Man, I gotta find SOMETHING to be excited about. Plus, of course he was gonna switch costumes every movie, Cap and Iron Man have gone through like dozens of looks. It's sort of an MCU tradition. https://t.co/E2MIcIid5I

New suit from Far From Home.
He’s got the Steve Ditko colors & maybe it’s just me, but I see a bit of Superior Spider-Man in there with the gauntlets / web shooters.
I like when Spider-Man has red & black on his costume. pic.twitter.com/a8jX5VIIy0

To those who are complaining about Spider-Man's new suit, here's what his original looked like. It's black with blue highlights. That's just how they drew black things back then.
Batman also had black with blue highlights in his costume. pic.twitter.com/yTaZ9X3qIL

Name one character in the MCU that hasn’t had constant costume changes.
Spider-Man has been in the Homecoming suit for Civil War, Homecoming, the beginning of Infinity War, And the first half of this.

I like the new suit for Spider-Man Far From Home. It has a Superior Spider-Man feel to me and the white spider I feel like is inspired by Insomniac Spider-Man. pic.twitter.com/EvVTEO5hFG
