New 'Amazing Spider-Man' suit has built-in MP3 player
Peter Parker will be seen listening to music through his suit in 'The Amazing-Spider Man 2'
The spandex suit worn by Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will have its own MP3 player.
Costume designer Deborah Lynn Scott has redesigned the suit from last year's The Amazing Spider-Man to include richer colours, larger eyes and the belt that Spidey traditionally wears in his comic-book adventures.
Scott has also pimped the costume technologically. "We wanted ours to have an MP3 player in it. You'll see early on in the film that he can turn music on that he's listening to inside the costume through his web shooter," she told Entertainment Weekly, which has an interactive feature on the new costume.
"The suit is different. The suit is bad-ass. The suit is improved," the film's producer Matt Tolmach added.
Director Marc Webb finished shooting The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last month (June) and the film is set to open worldwide on May 2, 2014. Andrew Garfield is back as Peter Parker and Emma Stone reprises her role as Gwen Stacy, while Jamie Foxx has joined the cast and plays a villain called Electro.
Chronicle star Dane DeHaan is another new addition and plays Harry Osborn, Peter Parker's best friend. Shailene Woodley had been due to appear as Mary Jane Watson, but her role has recently been cut from the film and MJ will now make her Amazing Spider-Man debut in the third movie, due in 2016.
