For 50 years, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s Spider-Man character has withstood the test of time in the Marvel Comics world, Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man films, and Kevin Feige’s Marvel Cinematic Universe.

In live-action, the teenage web-slinger has been famously portrayed by Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield, and Tom Holland — all of whom joined forces in Marvel Studios’ blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021).

Spider-Man/Peter Parker first appeared in Marvel Comics’ “Amazing Fantasy, No. 15” (1962). In this issue, sickly orphan Parker is bitten by a radioactive spider, ultimately turning from a somewhat self-absorbed irksome teenager into the friendly neighborhood super hero we know and love today.

Over time, Parker’s Spider-Man suit has evolved in various projects. And, now, Marvel has confirmed that the character will be receiving a brand new outfit in an upcoming Marvel Comics issue.

One article notes:

Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War is a five-issue miniseries that sends the characters from Fortnite Island to the Marvel Universe to team up with heroes such as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, and Shuri. Together, they must hunt down the elusive Zero Shard, a crystallized fragment of the Zero Point. An upcoming issue of Fortnite X Marvel: Zero War will borrow from Secret Wars #8 by putting Spider-Man in a new costume, similar to how the web-slinger donned his black alien symbiote in the 1984 comic.

It is unknown if this new suit will ever make its way into a Marvel Cinematic Universe project.

Currently, it remains unclear if Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios will continue their collaborative efforts on the Spider-Man franchise. Spider-Man producer Amy Pascal has already teased a fourth Spider-Man collaboration — and an entire second trilogy, in fact — between the two studios, but Sony Pictures was quick to note that this has not yet been officially confirmed.
