Marvel has provided fans with their first look at Spider-Man’s all-new costume designed by Dustin Weaver, debuting in March’s Amazing Spider-Man.
The publisher first teased “a new look” for Peter Parker’s superhero attire in its March 2021 solicitations. Fans got another tease for Spider-Man’s new costume and it’s secret on a silhouette cover for March’s Amazing Spider-Man #62 by Nick Spencer and Patrick Gleason. The Spider-Man costume is designed by Dustin Weaver, who illustrated the variant covers for Amazing Spider-Man #62-63.
“This design was really a collaborative effort between Nick Spencer, Editor Nick Lowe, and I. They reined in the weirder and more techy features I was bringing and helped create something that I think is simple and both futuristic and classical,” Weaver said in a statement. “I can’t wait to see Patrick Gleason really bring it to life!”

The costume looks very reminiscent of a super suit Peter Parker would wear in Insomniac Game’s Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4|5. It ditches the hero’s signature red-and-blue color scheme for gray-and-blue, with bright gold highlights for the chest’s spider emblem and eyes. Weaver’s two variant covers show Spider-Man swinging through the New York streets, as the city is given a gold background to make Spidey’s new costume pop on the page. The variant cover for Amazing Spider-Man #63 features J. Jonah Jameson — a former rival and now trusted confidant — chasing after Spider-Man as a man and woman attempt to get a camera shot of the costume through the car’s sunroof.
“Following the traumatic events of Sin’s Rising, Peter Parker will wear this new suit for his faceoff against Kingpin in the next arc of writer Nick Spencer’s hit run,” Marvel wrote. “Discover the mystery behind this top-secret costume when AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #61 and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #62 swing into shops this March!”
Amazing Spider-Man #62, by Nick Spencer and Patrick Gleason, goes on sale in March 2021 from Marvel Comics.
