Spider-Man is getting a new look as Marvel continues to expand its presence within Disney Parks. The character has already appeared in Disney Parks, but his look has been very classic and lacking the contemporary touches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That is about to change.
Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development Ryan Meinerding has given Spidey a fresh design that clearly draws inspiration from the MCU. Meinerding was the right person for the job, having designed the Web-Slinger’s various MCU looks from Captain America: Civil War through this July’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.
“It has been the highlight of my career to design all of Spider-Man’s suits for the most recent films,” Meinerding said in Disney’s official announcement. “Bringing him to life through Tony Stark’s capable design aesthetic was a true joy, but working with the Walt Disney Imagineering team to develop a look for Spidey that reflects the innovation of a team of young geniuses really brings him to a new level.
“And knowing that park guests can get up close to that suit and really take in all the detail the astounding Imagineers packed into it means that we have truly brought a new version of the character to life.”
Spider-Man will lead the way in the Worldwide Engineering Brigade (WEB), a new story initiative that will be woven into the planned Marvel expansions in Disney California Adventure in Anaheim and Walt Disney Studios park in Paris. WEB will allow guests to “join the heroes in action” as they navigate through the parks.
