Gwen Stacy criticizes Miles Morales’ new costume in a deleted scene from “Across The Spider-Verse,” and she raises a valid point. The original black and red suit that Miles wore in “Into The Spider-Verse” was already perfect and iconic. The trend of changing superhero costumes in sequels can be frustrating and often unnecessary. It often sacrifices cool designs for supposed improvements without much justification.
Miles Morales’ new costume in “Across The Spider-Verse” is over-designed and lacks the charm of his original homemade suit. One of the things that made Miles unique in the first film was his costume, which he made himself. It set him apart from other Spider-Men and added to his cool factor. The black and red design was simple yet effective, and the hand-painted Spider logo added a personal touch, symbolizing his artistic side and connection to his late uncle. There was no need to change it.
In a deleted scene, Gwen Stacy expresses her preference for Miles’ old costume when he reveals his new one. She mentions that the new costume looks like he’s bleeding from the arm-pits, which highlights the unnecessary changes made. Gwen is right in saying that the original costume was better.
This new costume for Miles Morales continues the frustrating trend of changing superhero costumes in sequels. It seems like every time a character reappears, there’s a need for a rebrand, even if it’s not justified. Superheroes’ looks are part of their brand identity, and it’s disappointing to see cool costumes being replaced with supposed improvements that often lack justification.
Furthermore, Miles’ new costume in “Across The Spider-Verse” is needlessly over-designed. The addition of blue detailing and a slicker execution doesn’t add anything to the design. In contrast, his first costumes had a rough, homemade feel that added charm to the character. It depicted him as an amateur superhero without the backing of a tech billionaire. The sloppier spider logo added to the sense of him being an aspiring hero who may not fit the mold of the Spider-Society. The slick replacement costume in the sequel doesn’t justify losing that charm.
In conclusion, Gwen Stacy’s criticism of Miles Morales’ new costume in “Across The Spider-Verse” is valid. The original black and red suit was already perfect, and the trend of changing superhero costumes in sequels is often unnecessary and frustrating. The new costume is over-designed and lacks the charm of the original. It’s a disappointing continuation of a prevalent trend in superhero movies.
