SDCC 2015 – Joe Quesada Praises New Spider-Man Suit

In an interview with IGN, Marvel Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada spilled that he has seen the new Spider-Man suit for the upcoming movie and that he loves it. “It looks awesome!” he said. “I think there are elements of it that are really going to blow people away, where they go, ‘Uh, that’s Marvel doing Spider-Man.” While he didn’t go into details about the suit, he is excited for fans to see it.

He also talked a little bit about how happy he is to see the race and gender changes Marvel has made to the characters in its comics. “I love when we do stuff like that, especially when the stories are great. I love when we twist things around and show the flexibility of our characters and how wonderful these icons are… gender switches, ethnicity changes… It’s all the beauty of the Marvel universe. To me as long as the stories are great, I’m along for the ride.” While he can’t confirm or deny any of the newer, more diverse characters getting their own movie, he says that anything is possible moving forward. If only that sentiment had followed into the upcoming Spider-Man movie, with Miles Morales in his own film.
