I’m not a big superhero movie fan, as a new superhero movie seems to be coming out every month these days and there is no end in sight. But there are plenty of folks that are massive fans of these movies, and make sure to rush out to see every single one of them. And while many are very excited for the new Spider-Man movie, not many people are very happy about the film’s poster. Let’s just say that it’s one big mess.
Take a look at the poster below.
Just gives me a headache. And it gave other people a headache, because they took it to Twitter to roast the hell out of it.
I love the new Spider-Man trailer but what the hell is this poster? Did someone win a competition on Reddit? pic.twitter.com/Z4kLxIOKz8

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

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

I don’t think they got their point across well enough with the new Spider-Man poster so I made a few changes pic.twitter.com/ZjnzmK3xmY

We’ve gotten some really good CBM posters this year.
