A production-made Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire) costume from Sam Raimi's superhero sequel Spider-Man 3. Spider-Man wore his iconic red-and-blue costume for the first and third acts of the film as he fought against Venom (Topher Grace) and Sandman (Thomas Haden Church).
Designed by three-time Academy Award®-winner James Acheson, this skin-tight spandex bodysuit was made for the production but ultimately unused. It is presented on a custom-built mannequin display, over the top of a production-used-and-worn muscle suit (labelled “Tobey #1” inside) to provide definition. It features the black rubber spider emblem in the middle of the chest and a silver rubber web pattern across the torso and boots. Zips run across the width of the back and up the sides of the torso, providing access to the suit. On set, the plastic eyes were mounted magnetically to the underskull as this allowed easy removal, however please note the lenses and underskull in this lot are replicas added to complete the aesthetic of the display. A handwritten label inside the crotch area reads “3 FF”.
The suit has some wear from age and use, most notably some cracks to the webbing pattern, and there is some minor repair work to the right ankle. Dimensions (displayed): 38 cm x 56 cm x 180 cm (15" x 22" x 70¾")
