Is this test better than what we received in the final result of the original Spider-Man film? It is freaking cool to see these tests. The makeup is awesome. It looks they used some kind of animatronics in the makeup to make the extremely exaggerated facial expressions. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why Sam Raimi didn’t go with this design. Additionally it could have been too monster and goblin-like. Maybe Sony was put off thinking that audiences wouldn’t react well with seeing such a creature on the screen and it would be a distraction to the core story.
