15. Vigilante Suit
You'd be excused if you forgot all about the vigilante look in the first Amazing Spider-Man movie. I know I did, and it wasn't until sitting down to write this article that it finally came to mind; "Oh yeah, this suit was a thing, wasn't it?". Aside from the fact that Peter briefly wore it and that it has a red face mask, there's nothing in there that indicates this is something the wall-crawler would wear when saving the world.
Home-made costumes in Spider-Man movies are designed to look like something a broke teenager could afford to make on his own without any help or too much effort. With that in mind, it can be said this costume shattered expectations. However, that's the only aspect where the vigilante look managed to triumph since both Tom Holland and Tobey Maguire had a better beginner suit than Andrew Garfield by a long shot. At least those two sagas tried to come up with an original design that captured the essence of Spider-Man while making it look low-cost. This one just disappeared from collective consciousness as if Thanos snapped his fingers to make it go away.
Home-made suits are supposed to be a solid starting point for Spider-Man. Audiences should see the potential in his first design. Maybe Peter isn't quite ready to be New York's iconic protector yet. Perhaps he doesn't have the experience necessary either. However, he's reaching for that goal, and it should be represented on his first attempt at a super suit. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case with this design.
Andrew Garfield poured his heart and soul into portraying Spider-Man, so it's a shame he will go in history as having the shortest-lived Spider-Man franchise and one of the least iconic live-action suits. However, not everything went bad for the British actor in the costumes department, but more on that later.
