Russo brothers discuss Spider-Man's suit in Civil War

Anthony and Joe Russo, directors of Captain America Civil War and Winter Soldier, recently chatted with Forbes. They dished on Civil War, post-credit scenes and Spider-Man, but more specifically web-head's suit.

Forbes: There’s been a lot of talk about the Spider-Man costume as well, a mixed reaction. What is your response to that?

Joe Russo: The design of the costume is what it is. That’s the design that we love, it’s the design that Kevin Feige loves and so on. He’s a very popular character so it’s always going to be controversial, people are always going to love or hate what you do with him, but all we can do is make sure that we love it, that we are true to ourselves and true to how we feel about the character and then hope that everybody else digs it.

Anthony Russo: Part of issue is that we gave such a small impression of the character in that trailer, it’s something of a Rorschach test where people can pour as much of their Spidey anxieties out but when they see the movie they are going to get a very big picture of a very complete character that they have never seen before. It’s kind of hard to react to people’s reactions but they will change radically when they see the movie.

Joe: And there is still effects work that needs to be done on it.

Analysis: I was, and remain, a fan of the suit, at least of what we've seen. Really curious what effects still are planned to be done when it comes to the suit and what Anthony means by "a very complete character that they have never seen before."

The Russos also would not elaborate on Spider-Man's involvement with their Avengers Infinity War movies.

Joe Russo would elaborate on whether or not Spidey's suit could change or evolve:

"Without question. We like making strong choices with characters so while this might be a slightly more traditional, Steve Ditko influenced suit, it is certainly in our vocabulary to develop it into something more extreme as the storytelling requires. I think there are things that people will discover when they see the film about why the suit operate the way it does, why the eyes move, all that stuff is substantiated. Everybody wants the answers yesterday but then what would be the point of seeing the movie?"

The Russos are saying all the right things, but remained as tight-lipped as possible.
