Black Spider-Man and Venom Costumes for SPIDER-MAN 3 that went unused

Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man 3 didn’t end up as awesome as we all hoped. I know different costume designs couldn’t have saved the movie, but it is cool to see a couple of alternate costume designs that could have been. I’ve included a couple of photos featuring an unused test costume for Venom created by Frontline Design Inc. This costume comes from the same guys that created the new Superman costume in Man of Steel. I don’t really care for any of the Venom designs that were created for the movie. That villain should have been so much more badass. Hopefully we get to see that in the new movie being developed.

Then, directly below, you’ll find a rejected black costume for Spider-Man. The photo features Sam Raimi and the costume designer testing out a couple of different Spider-Man logos that they could possibly use with the costume. It’s very different than what we ended up seeing in the film. So why didn’t they go with this costu

me design? According to a video from SevenWebHeads that I’ve embed below…

“The producers didn’t want use it because they felt the latex made Spidey look like he was in a porno.”

What are your  thoughts on these unused costumes? I think the  black spider-man suit looked  sweet!
