The wildly uneven Spider-Man 3 led to Marc Webb’s recent reboot, but it still stands out as an engaging train wreck — and did give us the closest thing to a good Venom story we’ve ever had on the big screen. So want to see the black Spidey suit that never made it out of development?

When Spidey was corrupted, director Sam Raimi went with the black suit in the above pic to show off all those evil superpowers. But a very different look was in play well into development — and we actually think it looks pretty cool.

Check it out below and let us know which design you prefer:

According to Comic Book Movie, this look was abandoned because the latex design proved impractical, and Raimi reportedly liked the webbed style that eventually did make the cut.
