Are there really people who have a problem with it?
I've only seen people referring to it as a good reference.

I've seen people mock it on here and FB comments for its similarities. Likely not a widespread thing though.

I hope they do cause I really don't want to play with that costume. Although Mark Webb's movies were the better ones, I prefer Spider-man's costume from the Sam Raimi movies. Here's hoping we'll get to customize our experience much like we can do in Batman Arkham Knight and get the costume from the aforementioned movies.
