Adam from North of the Border apparently got confused and got the names of two of Marvel’s superheroes backward. His Man-Ant and Man-Spider sculptures are two of his most disturbing creations to date, making the insects the hosts with human genetics taking over their bodies. It’s the human skin that really creeps us out.
What does the Green Goblin have in common with a can of Sprite? Their vibrant green color, of course. Minimaus Crafts is back with another fantastic soda can sculpture – bringing Spider-Man’s arch-frenemy to life from precisely cut and folded pieces of aluminum harvested from Sprite, Royal Grape, Royal Orange, Coke, and Pepsi cans.
The eyes on Spider-Man’s mask typically have a fixed expression. But Sean’s Crafts took on the challenge of giving Spidey more visible emotion by making his eyes change shape. He started by making a mask from poster board, fiberglass cloth, resin, and wood filler. Then he rigged it with mechanical eye shutters controlled by a bike cable.
Spider-Meme, Spider-Meme, does whatever a Spider-Meme does. This short-sleeve shirt from RSVLTS celebrates the Spider-Man pointing at Spider-Man meme with dozens of Marvel’s web-slingers pointing at each other across its print. The slim-fit KUNUFLEX shirt is designed for comfort with stretchy and breathable fabric that won’t shrink in the wash.
We’ve seen some pretty neat Doc Ock cosplays, but most of them don’t have real robot tentacles. Engineer James Bruton wanted to not only build a working tentacle robot but improve on its flexibility. His prototype is impressive, but only part of a single tentacle. We look forward to seeing his progress as he refines it.
JLaservideo has made several attempts to create a real-world version of Spider-Man’s web slingers. His latest iteration has the ability to shoot webs from his palm, stick to surfaces, and are strong enough for him to swing from. JLaser is also selling a magnetic web shooter you can play with but definitely won’t hold your weight.
Does comic collecting get your Spidey senses tingling? Chronicle Books boxed 100 postcards of the greatest Spider-Man comic book covers by such artists as Steve Ditko, John Romita Sr. and Jr., and Todd McFarlane. The whole Marvel-ous gang is here, from Peter Parker to Gwen Stacy, and villains Venom, Green Goblin and Doc Ock.
With the help of AI image generation tech, Corridor created this short fan film in the style of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The crossover imagines that The Avengers (and a whole lot of Spider-Men variants) found their way into the Spider-Verse as a result of the events of Doctor Strange’s actions. Go behind the scenes here.
The animation in Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse was both groundbreaking and breathtaking. Pinot W. Ichwandardi and his family worked together to painstakingly recreate sequences from the film using traditional animation and through-the-lens compositing techniques. The result is both impressive and charming.
If you can believe it, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was the first theatrically-released animated movie to feature one of the Avengers. It was a huge gamble to create it like a live-action comic book, but that creative decision paid off. Danny Boyd from CinemaStix offers his take on why it worked so brilliantly.
(PG-13: Language/Gore) What would it be like if Billy Butcher and Hughie found themselves facing off against the supes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Alternative Cuts offers their take on how things might go down if The Boys had a run-in with Spider-Man after Peter Parker got shot up with Compound V.
This 1/10th-scale statue was inspired by the Spider-Man Pointing at Spider-Man meme. The 8.2″ tall scene features Spidey in his cartoon red and blue costume pointing his figure at whatever you want, along with a miniature shipping crate. You’ll need to buy two or more to replicate the meme, so that could get expensive.
This short fan film by Alessandro Costanzo envisions what might have happened after the end of Spider-Man No Way Home, and that Andrew Garfield’s Peter 3 met up with Emma Stone’s Spider-Gwen. They pulled off the trickery using deepfake tech, applying the original actors’ faces onto new actors and dubbing new voices. (Thanks, Rob!)
Queen Studios created this 1:1-scale Spider-Man as he appeared in Avengers: Infinity War. The limited-edition polystone sculpture measures over 6 feet tall and has been painstakingly finished with metallic paints. Iron Spidey also has light-up eyes, armor, palms, and a glowing base. Sadly, he’s not available here in North America.
JLaserVideo loves to make costumes and gadgets that replicate those in superhero movies. To celebrate the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, he created a set of special vacuum sleeves that stick to smooth surfaces like walls and ceilings. The video culminates with him using them to climb a 14-story building.
To celebrate the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Logan Winter Dominic’s dad built him the ultimate Green Goblin costume. The creepy helmet and body armor are spot-on, but it’s the hoverboard modded to look like the Goblin Glider that takes it to the next level.
(Gore) Thanks to the events of Loki, we now have the MCU multiverse, and Peter Parker is only gonna make things worse in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The VFX crew from Corridor imagine how Mobius M. Mobius might clean up the mess by pruning unwanted Spidey variants in the most gruesome ways possible.
Miles Morales receives an unexpected visit from Gwen Stacy, who asks him to join her on a new Spider-venture. Expect more of Spider-Man 2099 and other Spidey variants as they travel the multiverse and encounter an even more villainous baddie than Kingpin in the sequel to Into the Spider-Verse. In theaters 10.7.2022.
The latest trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home reveals a bit too much plot for our taste, but also gives us glimpses of several familiar villains from Peter’s multiverse. In addition to Doc Ock, expect appearances from Green Goblin, Sandman, Electro, and more. The jury’s still out if we’ll get Toby Maguire or Andrew Garfield, though.
Inspired by the nanotech “Iron Spider” suit seen in Spider-Man: No Way Home, JLaservideo wanted to see if he could replicate Spidey’s instantly-appearing, eight-legged outfit. J’s suit hides its appearance beneath a thermochromic pigment, and has inflatable tentacles that unfurl like those party horns.
Sculptor Steven Richter set himself the challenge of creating a mechanical claw machine based on Doc Ock’s tentacles from Spider-Man 2 and No Way Home. The build features cast resin parts and a cable-driven mechanism that lets an operator move the claw and grip objects with it. Plush Spidey doesn’t stand a chance.
