Wanna play basketball with Spiderman? Andrew Garfield shoots some hoops in costume. I think this is a publicity stunt. Normally you wouldn’t sweat into and ruin an expensive costume like that.

Here’s an album showing how to make your own Spiderman costume. Associated post thread on Reddit with lots of compliments on physique, etc.

NPR did an interview with the new guy playing Spiderman in the next movie.

As an adult, when Garfield finally put on the spider suit, it was an exciting experience — but also very uncomfortable.

“The reality of it is it’s kind of that crazy-awful thing where fantasy is no longer,” Garfield says. “You’re truly in spandex, which actually sucks, in reality. It’s hard work being that guy; it’s tough.”

To compensate for the limitations of the suit, Garfield studied the movements of athletes like Muhammad Ali and the soccer player Ronaldo.

“I wanted to have a sense of freedom,” says Garfield, “because that’s part of the point of a disguise. Because it gives you anonymity, and therefore freedom. I wanted to feel sexy in it — I didn’t want to feel uncomfortable and like I was adjusting all the time.”

Nice moves, and nice body too.

I get hard for guys who can dance.

Costumed Dramas: Behind the Mask

Financial Times (FT) looks at a history of superhero fashion. Why exactly we’re talking about skin-tight costumes in the world’s leading business newspaper, I’m not sure.

Video: Return to the Batcave

Watch the video, see Batman and Robin get dressed. Nice to see superheroes actually acknowledge what they are wearing.
