Internet Pokes Fun at Busy 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' Poster
There is a lot going on in the new poster for the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming — maybe too much.
The latest promotional material for the highly anticipated Sony/Marvel Studios film features a lot of characters, including Iron Man and Tony Stark. Yeah, both. Happy Hogan is in there, too.
Of course, there is also Peter Parker and Spider-Man, but some have pointed out the poster makes it seem like the flick, due out July 7, is an Iron Man film featuring Spider-Man.
In reality, the film is the first stand-alone for the Tom Holland incarnation of the web-slinger, after he was introduced to audiences in 2016's Captain America: Civil War.
And because it's the internet, along with the critiques, there were some alterations to the poster. See the original (up first) and some of the changes below:

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— Kyle Buchanan (@kylebuchanan) May 24, 2017

That Spider-Man poster still isn't close to being the worst superhero movie poster ever pic.twitter.com/KWiFaPfYlV— Ben Skipper (@bskipper27) May 24, 2017
