Newly released concept art from the Spider-Man: No Way Home – The Art of the Movie artbook has shed light on an alternate direction for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man suit.

The artwork unveils a Symbiote-inspired design that nearly made its way into the film.

A Long-Awaited Symbiote Nod

Tom Holland’s Spider-Man was envisioned to wear a black suit with a distinctive white Symbiote-like logo on his chest, as depicted in the concept art.

The iconic black suit, first seen on Tobey Maguire in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, has long captured fans’ imagination. The concept art ignited renewed interest in the Symbiote storyline within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Detailed Symbiote Aesthetics

The concept art showcases the suit’s intricate details, with a design that closely echoes Holland’s Upgraded Suit.

Notably, the large white spider emblem on the chest draws parallels to the classic Symbiote suit introduced in 1984’s The Amazing Spider-Man Issue #252. This design choice underscores the suit’s symbiotic nature.

Game and Movie Synergy

The symbiote suit is poised to make an appearance in Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 video game, adapting the look with an organic twist.

While the concept art offers an alternative Spider-Man logo in red, Marvel Studios ultimately pursued the iconic white emblem.

Anticipating the Symbiote’s MCU Debut

Although these concepts weren’t meant to be the definitive Symbiote suit, they have fueled speculation about its eventual inclusion in the MCU.

With the introduction of Venom in the MCU through Tom Hardy’s portrayal, fans eagerly await the moment Holland’s Spider-Man dons the Symbiote suit.


The upcoming Spider-Man 4 film is speculated to offer a suitable platform for exploring this storyline, aligning with the thematic elements of Peter Parker’s journey.

Matching the Excitement of Gaming Designs

As Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 game captures fans’ enthusiasm with its take on the Symbiote costume, the MCU faces the challenge of crafting an equally captivating design.

The dynamic potential of Holland’s Spider-Man merging with the Symbiote remains a compelling narrative prospect for the character’s evolution.
