Spider-Man: Homecoming may have avoided becoming yet another superhero origin story, but that hasn’t stopped Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios from paying homage to Spidey’s first appearance.
Sony and Marvel have released a new poster recreating the cover to Amazing Fantasy #15, the issue featuring the first ever Spider-Man story by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The cover shows Spider-Man swinging through the air with a criminal under his arm. The Spider-Man: Homecoming poster recreates the pose but uses the new movie’s Spider-Man costume and a thug in an Iron Man mask from one of the film’s standout scene. Take a look below (via Nerdist).
