Some critics have already seen Spider-Man: Homecoming and a good portion of the critics screenings are happening this week. Thus far Sony has marketed this movie to death and they keep releasing clips and posters like the world might actually end before this movie has a chance to come out.
One thing they did do that was kind of funny was take over a Starbucks in New York City and have Spider-Man drop out of the ceiling to get a cup of coffee. The reactions of the people he drops in on are pretty funny since they react about the same way any of us would react if a dude in a costume dropped from the ceiling. Though they should consider themselves fortunate that no one punched Spidey on instinct.
After that giant mess of an IMAX poster that was released yesterday we now get to see Sony and Marvel take a step back when it comes to their terrible posters. This one was apparently around at the junket and has now turned up on sites like Cinemark.
If that poster looks familiar then you would be correct. It is very similar to posters for the original Spider-Man movie and The Amazing Spider-Man.
So that poster is much better than that IMAX mess which, again, is a good idea in theory but visually it’s a mess. This one just screams Spider-Man as he swings high across the city.
Summary: Following the events of Captain America: Civil War (2016), Peter Parker attempts to balance his life in high school with his career as the web-slinging superhero Spider-Man.
