A Spider-Man fan designs a stunning Scorpion armor cosplay which has a lot in common with Green Goblin’s military tech in Sam Raimi’s films.
A costumed cosplayer’s armored costume makes the Spider-Man villain to life. The costume is prepared to go to the toe with Tom Holland’s charming web-slingers in a new video posted on social media.
Coy Jandreau posted the video on Twitter, featuring the unidentified Scorpion cosplayer in action, taking a picture for the camera in a series of pose-based attacks from a crouch. The armored costume worn by the fan is reminiscent of the Green Goblin’s military technology from Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man. Jandreau posted a follow-up post that included an image of the cosplayer fighting against another dressed as Mortal Kombat‘s Scorpion. Jandreau captioned this post with “THIS was my next experience.” “Glorious!” He also asked if anyone could find the person who played the character. The name of the fan was not known as of the time this article was written.

Developed by Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Scorpion made his comics debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #19 as Mac Gargan, a private investigator who is hired by The Daily Bugle‘s J. Jonah Jameson to discover the method by which Peter Parker obtains his photographs of Spider-Man. Jameson hires Gargan as an experiment subject for Dr. Farley Stillwell. This will give Gargan the appearance of a scorpion, as well as his signature costume that has a mechanical tail. The garage is enthralled by the predatory instincts and ego of his evil alter ego. Gargan is a constant danger to Jameson.
The Scorpion Screen History
The Scorpion has appeared in several animated projects, such as 1967’s Spider-Man as well as 1981’s Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, 1994’s Spider-Man as well as the 2008’s Spectacular Spider-Man, and the most recent, in 2018, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The character’s possible first live-action appearance was discussed by fans during the lead-up to Drew Goddard’s unsuccessful Sinister Six movie set to follow the 2014 film The Amazing Spider-Man 2, though Goddard hasn’t publicly confirmed the roster of his team. The character finally made his debut live-action in the 2017 film Spider-Man Homecoming with the voice of Michael Mando. While the actor’s appearance did not see him wearing the iconic Scorpion costume, the film’s post-credits scene suggested a costumed future to the character as he teamed up with Michael Keaton’s Vulture.

But 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home and a scene after the credits from 2022 Morbius have put doubt on the future of Scorpion. These films combined resulted in Keaton’s Toomes going to the Sony Spider-Man Universe where he attempts to form an alliance of villains with Jared Leto’s Michael Morbius, instead of Mando’s Gargan. Kingpin’s inclusion in Marvel Cinematic Universe could increase the odds of the return of the Scorpion due to their previous collaborations in animation or comics.
In February, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige announced that the plot for Tom Holland’s Spider-Man 4 is settled and writers are currently “putting pen to paper.” The villains who will be featured in Spidey’s next big-screen adventure are still unknown.
