Yo, could someone get Scarfield a codpiece, please?

I saw a batch of these new set pictures from the Marc Webb Spider-Man reboot on Durden this morning, but I didn’t really think anything of them.  I figured it was just a stunt double in there practicing for action sequences.  Turns out, no, that’s actually Andrew Garfield (Scarfield) inside the suit.

Hey, uh… so what exactly was the plan here?  Because so far, it looks like they took the most waifish actor they could find, stuck him in skintight spandex with no underpants, and drew a big red arrow toward his junk.  Who’s directing this again, Lou Perlman?
