While many of Spider-Man: Homecoming's promotional materials were embraced by fans, few have been able to forget the rather busy theatrical poster that was released back in May. The poster sparked both serious analysis and a whole lot of Photoshopping - the later of which has had some unintended consequences.
Reddit user Q_Q-Reddit recently shared a photo of an advertisement for Homecoming in the The Himalayan Times, a popular Nepalese newspaper. The only problem? The poster the advertisement used was one of the many Photoshopped parody posters - in this case, one featuring Batman and Donald Trump.
The parody poster is courtesy of artist Mike Mitchell, who first shared his take on the crowded poster back in May.
The mix up can also be seen on The Himalayan Times' electronic paper, which you can find here. While it's unclear whether or not the Homecoming poster was ironically placed in the advertisement, the end result is pretty amusing.
This also isn't the first time a fan-made Marvel Cinematic Universe poster has been used in this way. Back in 2013, a Chinese theater accidentally displayed a Photoshopped Thor: The Dark World poster that depicted Thor and Loki in a tender embrace.
Spider-Man: Homecoming currently enjoys a 4.12 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
A young Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who made his sensational debut in Captain America: Civil War, begins to navigate his newfound identity as the web-slinging super hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming. Thrilled by his experience with the Avengers, Peter returns home, where he lives with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), under the watchful eye of his new mentor Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.). Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain, everything that Peter holds most important will be threatened.
The cast includes Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Zendaya, Donald Glover, JacobBatalon, Laura Harrier, Tony Revolori, Tyne Daly, Bokeem Woodbine, with Marisa Tomei, and Robert Downey Jr. It also includes Jon Favreau, Martin Starr, Kenneth Choi, Michael Mando, Selenis Leyva, Isabella Amara, Jorge Lendeborg, Jr., JJ Totah, and Hannibal Buress.0comments
