'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Poster Is Far From Good

Below you will see the latest poster for Spider-Man: Far From Home. I’ll cut right to the chase: while the movie itself may end up being as amazing as the titular hero, this poster most certainly is not. Behold.

Not great! Now, don’t be too worried because there are more posters (found below) that aren’t nearly as bad but this one above is just abysmal. The lighting, the bizarre metallic-looking Spider-Man logo, the shadows and shading on each character — these are just some of the troubling aspects of this poster. It looks like a damn made-for-TV poster, doesn’t it? Or even worse: like an image you’d see on the cover of a bootleg copy of the movie. Sheesh.

What caused this muck-up? Did the advertising department forget their deadline and threw this together in a few minutes? Was this poster crafted on Bring Your Child To Work Day? Did it miss a step in the rendering process? I have questions, Marvel! Your last movie made about three—hundred bajillion dollars at the box office, you should have no problem affording a capable marketing department.

A poster doesn’t really indicate the quality of the film. Plenty of great movies have had bad one-sheets. But this certainly isn’t a good look for one of the most anticipated films of the year. It looks like Spidey’s biggest villain is a novice Photoshop user.
