Four new Spider-Man movie posters have surfaced - two for the Marvel Studios-produced Spider-Man: Homecoming and two for Sony Pictures Animation's Spider-Man.
Of the two Spider-Man: Homecoming posters, the Drew Struzan-esque collage of characters poster (at right) follows in Marvel Studios' long-held poster formula going back to 2008's Iron Man - that's despite this being a Sony film with Marvel merely producing it for them.
Curious is the prominence of Zendaya's 'Michelle' and Jon Favreau's Happy Hogan in this poster. Zendaya’s character has been featured in only brief moments in the various trailers and have gotten much less screen time than Laura Harrier’s Liz Allan or Jacob Batalon’s Ned Leeds.
Her appearance is also strikingly different then the disheveled look in the trailers which will do nothing to clamp down on reports her character will undergo a change/reveal by the end of the movie.
Favreau’s prominence is even more surprising. Could Happy be playing a second, alternate fatherly role to Peter in contrast to Tony Stark’s snarky tough love approach?
The other poster has Iron Man, Spider-Man, and the Vulture - as well as the inclusion of Avengers Tower.
Over on the animated side, the first two posters for Sony Pictures Animation's Spider-Man movie have been spotted at Licensing Expo 2017 in Las Vegas. Collider has snapped pictures of the two graffitti-inspired posters, which infer that the movie could end up being called Spider-Man: The Animated Movie.
You can view the other poster here. The posters have not been released online as of yet by Sony.
Sony's animated Spider-Man movie is scheduled to be released in North American theaters December 14, 2018, while Spider-Man: Homecoming is due out July 7.
