The Twitter account supposedly belongs to the Russo brothers, the directors of "Captain America: Civil War," and according to the website, one of the tweets appears to have a photo of Spider-Man's mask. The red-and-black mask appears to have a unique texture. Another tweet is of goggles with shutters on the lenses. It can be seen placed upon a red fabric. According to Web speculations, these could be Spider-Man's goggles. There is no official confirmation in regard to these pictures, and it is also not known whether the Twitter account actually belongs to Joe and Anthony Russo.
However, Holland’s Spider-Man costume has been already designed, and Marvel's president, Kevin Feige, told Crave Online that the suit will be different from the previous versions.
“I was more involved in the Raimi ones and think they did a very good job. But that being said, we’ve already designed the costume, which is different than any of the ones that have come before. And yet, ours is classic Spidey, as I think you’ll see,” he said.
Marvel Chief Creative Officer, Joe Quesada, had also told IGN during the San Diego Comic-Con that the costume is “awesome,” and there is lot of styling that has gone into it. “I think there are elements of it that are really going to blow people away, where they are going to go ‘Ah, that’s Marvel doing Spider-Man,'” he said.
“Captain America: Civil War” will open in the theaters on May 6, 2016, whereas Holland’s untitled solo Spider-Man film is set for 2017 release. It will be helmed by "Cop Car" director Jon Watts.
