Spider-Man has one of the most colorful rogues’ galleries --- partially due to the fact that he’s been around for so long --- but the creators behind Spidey have always just supplied him with variety from the get-go. Whether it’s any one of them alone or teaming up in groups like the Sinister Six to take down the high-flying webslinger, Spidey’s baddies come from all walks of life and create awesome threats for our hero and his friends to overcome. These are the best Spider-Man villain cosplays.
A hero is defined by their villains, and the world of superhero comic books is filled with some of the scariest and silliest bad guys around. Rogues' Gallery aims to settle the score and determine who is the true arch-nemesis for some of favorite superheroes, and we need your help to do it!
In our first installment, we want to know who is the ultimate Spider-Man bad guy. Which villain strikes fear into the heart of Peter Parker in a way no-one else can?
Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Multimedia concept art is always pretty neat, if only to see how things might've been, and that's especially true for movies based on comics. We're all pretty familiar with how the real Spider-Man (oh you know what I mean) looks, so little twists to his costume that are done for the big screen are always worth looking at, even if they run the gamut between "pretty cool" and "terrifyingly awful."
Fortunately, Jared Krichevsky's concepts for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 skew a lot closer to the former. He's got art for how the movie might've looked, in a world where, as CA's Caleb Goellner put it, "the Rhino looks like Kamen Rider Kabuto and Miles Morales was the star."
Hot Toys' 1/6 scale Spider-Man figure from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie looks like he's in for some towering trouble. With the film opening internationally ahead of its May 2 US release date, the Hong Kong-based Hot Toys has posted a look at what appears to be one of the biggest toys its ever done and a mech that could stand toe-to-metal-toe with much of its cinematic Iron Man offerings. That's right, it's the Rhino.
