EW gives you a sneak peek at Tobey Maguire as Spider Man

The indie actor adjusts to the web slinger’s snug duds

Spider Man: Cliff Watts

Columbia’s ”Spider-Man” isn’t due until May 3, 2002, but the usual web of secrecy is missing. ”We want to save some surprises,” says director Sam Raimi. ”But we’re not going to torture the audience.” In fact, the studio has released this exclusive first look at a Spidey suited Tobey Maguire — yep, that’s him in the form fitting body glove designed by Oscar winner James Acheson. ”It took a little getting used to,” admits the newly buff 25 year old, who will be leaping and swinging ”Crouching Tiger” style via wires and special effects. No kung fu, though. ”I can personally do any style of fighting they ask,” jokes Maguire. ”But no, we gotta stick to the comic.”
