Photos of an early symbiote suit designed for Toby Maguire in Spider-Man 3, released in 2007, have surfaced on the internet.
How was it Tobey Maguire’s original black suit ?
Via @EARTH_96283, on Twitter, four photos of the original costume worn by Peter Parker in the third part of Spiderman from the director Sam Raimi were published. One of the photos shows Sam Raimi and a costume designer tests different spider symbols for the chest area of the all-black costume. The other photos show the symbiote in the classic poses of Spiderman for test purposes. Although the costume’s appearance is more akin to its Marvel Comics design, the Twitter user assumes this version was scrapped because it was a bit too club latex.

The addition of the symbiote in Spider-Man 3 is the result of the producer Avi Arad who pushed Sam Raimi include the character ofEddie Brock/Venom (Topher Grace). The director reluctantly agreed, although he thought about it poison there was a lack of “humanity”. The costume ultimately chosen is the costume of Spiderman, all black. The rest is history.
