It is less than a month before we see Spider-Man in his first stand-alone film in the MCU. With Spider-Man: Homecoming being the first time Sony has worked with Marvel to bring the character into the universe (rather than simply letting Marvel Studios use Spidey in Captain America: Civil War) it has become apparent that Sony really wants us to know that this Spider-Man is in the same universe as Iron Man. While we still don’t know how much of the movie will feature the well-known and loved character that kicked off the MCU, we aren’t going to forget that he’s going to be a part of the movie, anytime soon.
With a new international poster, Sony has continued this style of advertising, with Spider-Man just barely being the featured character, and Iron Man backing him up.
This poster is definitely less crowded than the official poster that was released a few weeks ago. In a new international banner, Iron Man takes an even more prominent position, as he appears to be the one fighting Vulture.
The advertisements for Homecoming have made it clear that Tom Holland‘s version of the beloved web-slinger is going to be close to Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark, and very interested in proving himself to be a part of The Avengers. It makes sense that a large part of the character growth in this first movie would be his relationship with Stark, with a part of that being the pair fighting together.
Do you think these advertisements are a sign of the relationship between Parker and Stark in the movie, or do you think Sony is just trying to make sure everybody knows that this film is a part of the MCU? Let us know, in the comments!
