new Spider-Man first look

We’ve already been told that the new Spider-Man suit will “blow people away,” and now there’s a chance that a first glimpse at the new suit may have been revealed in a rather mysterious way.

A new Twitter account has just been brought to our attention that is purporting to belong to Anthony and Joe Russo, the directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier and the next Marvel Studios production Captain America: Civil War, which is currently in production. And they’ve been posting some pretty perplexing photos, one of which that just might just offer a new Spider-Man first look.

Find out more about this mysterious Twitter account after the jump!

Birth.Death.Movies was tipped off about this Twitter account, and while it could easily just be a decoy Twitter account trying to fool fans, there’s some rather compelling evidence that supports this being a legitimate tease of things from the set of Captain America: Civil War.

The Twitter account follows all the right people you’d expect, from Marvel franchise stars to Community cast members (the brothers directed and produced the comedy series), but it’s the people who are following the account that add credence to its authenticity.

Some of the early followers (on an account that only had 31 of them when it was discovered) include Jason Stamey, who has worked in casting on nearly all of the Marvel movies, Ryan Stankevitch, the vice president of global marketing for Disney and Andrew Stamm, a directors and producers assistant currently credited with working on Captain America: Civil War. Those are three rather strange and coincidental followers to be paying attention to this account if it’s just some kind of fan created hoax.

This isn’t definitive evidence that this account actually belongs to the Russo Brothers, but let’s take a look at some of the photos they’ve posted so far, and what they could be:

That’s just a bullet hole through some glass. There’s nothing there to confirm this is from Captain America: Civil War. But what about this?

That looks like it could easily be some kind of chair designed to hold The Winter Soldier when he was getting his arm repaired or his regular brainwashing. And then there’s this:

At first glance it seems like a close-up of a plaque with some text on it, but it could also be the cover of some kind of document. Either way, what does it say? A good guess could be “The Sokovia Accords,” the very thing mentioned in the credits scene from Ant-Man that Captain America thinks would keep Tony Stark from helping them on their mission involving The Winter Soldier.

But how about we get to that Spider-Man stuff, since that’s why you’re all here anyway. Check out these two photos:

That first one looks like some kind of lens, or maybe a goggle, that has a shutter on it. Is there a chance we might have a Spider-Man that has eyes that squint and go wide-eyed to show his expressions? That’s something that happens in comic book art all the time, but we’ve never seen it on the big screen.

And that second photo definitely has the texture of a superhero suit, and it’s also red and black, which are the colors of the original Spider-Man suit created by Steve Ditko, a suit that also had web flaps in the underarms. They’re also the colors of the new Spider-Man suit worn by Miles Morales in the comic books.

There’s some good evidence pointing to this being a legitimate Twitter account with teases from Captain America: Civil War (read more reinforcement in the full post at Birth.Death.Movies), but we’ll have to wait and see what else the account posts online. Hopefully this attention the account is receiving doesn’t put The Russo Brothers into hiding.

Do you think this stuff is legit?
