Yesterday, a host of new promo material for ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ arrived online, including not one but TWO new trailers.
There were also a couple of posters. And one, well… let’s just say it was a bit ‘busy’.
Yep, there was a lot going on, a lot of floating heads, and also an oddly prominent billing for Iron Man, considering it’s a Spider-Man movie and all.
Not to mention the Washington Monument, which is stuffed in there for reasons entirely unknown. It had better feature prominently in the movie, that’s all we’re saying.
Here it is in all its hectic glory:
Vanity Fair has gone as far as to publish a withering editorial take-down, dubbing the artwork ‘truly hideous’.
So as one might expect, it’s getting mocked mercilessly and, perhaps, justifiably.
Take it away, Twitter…
I'll be honest: I tried to improve the very busy SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING poster, and I no longer know where the original ends and mine begins pic.twitter.com/Sazywe9gwh

Why does the Monster Trucks movie have better poster design than Spider-Man Homecoming? pic.twitter.com/Ii7BNE1pab

So brave for Sony/Marvel to let a first-year design student use Photoshop Elements to design their latest SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING poster. pic.twitter.com/JMXbB7b2Dm

The new Spider-Man: Homecoming poster is unbelievably awful. Random character placement, awkward Washington monument, why is Tony on fire? pic.twitter.com/amwah4xWMh

Hey, leave it alone now. This isn’t fair anymore.
The movie lands on July 5.
