“Sometimes we get asked to pitch ideas for posters,” he explains on his Instagram account. “Here are a few roughs I did for Spider-Man: Homecoming. I really enjoyed coming up with these.”
There are some really amazing ideas here and while what we ended up with was fine (various shots of the web-slinger in the Big Apple with Avengers Tower in the background), it would have been a lot of fun seeing these in theaters. For whatever reason, though, Marvel Studios/Sony Pictures chose to go down a slightly different route.

This really emphasises the movie’s high school setting, but Spider-Man having fun at a party wasn’t really indicative of what we saw on screen or his personality so it’s easy to see why it wasn’t used.
This is a fun one. As the wall-crawler’s classmates struggle with their tuxedos at the Homecoming dance, Peter Parker is shown literally hanging around suited up as his heroic alter-ego.
This is far more fitting for Spider-Man. The web-slinger watches on as his classmates have fun, something he’s unable to do as with great power comes…well, you know the rest!
This fun design shows the wall-crawler hanging around his high school, and is far more artistic than most posters as the supporting cast is shown in the background in the form of chalk drawings.
This would have been brilliant. A simplistic poster showing both sides of Spidey’s world, this definitely would have gone a long way in selling the movie to sceptical fans.

spoiler stills from Spider-Man: Far From Home!
Back in his homemade suit, Peter Parker swings away from Mysterio in the illusion he’s created, and that actually means that each of the wall-crawler’s MCU costumes were included in this sequel.
Looking like a comic book panel brought to life, Mysterio pursues the wall-crawler through a twisted version of his high school, and it’s fair to say that this was a spectacular way to kick things off.
Multiple Mysterios pursue Spidey, and the amazing next shot in this sequence saw him trapped within the villain’s helmet. As visuals go in the MCU, this was a definite standout.
After punching through Mysterio’s helmet, the wall-crawler plummets to the floor below, but is, of course, just in the warehouse where the villain managed to lure him to. The drones are creating the illusion.
Here, we see how the “B.A.R.F.” technology Quentin Beck helped Tony Stark create is able to completely change the wall-crawler’s surroundings and make him see things that aren’t really there.
Here, we get a before and after look at how the entirely CG sequence was created, and it’s astonishing to think that everything we saw on screen was brought to life solely with visual effects.
At the top of the Eiffel Tower, Mysterio manages to convince Spider-Man that he’s kidnapped MJ, but it’s all part of his plan to make the web-slinger reveal who else knows about his dastardly plan.
The Multiverse sequence in Doctor Strange was pretty trippy, but this one might just have it beat. We’ll have more details for you tomorrow about moments that were removed from the illusion.
None of us expected to see Iron Man rise from the grave so soon, right? This is a truly horrifying piece of imagery, and one Mysterio uses to really mess with the wall-crawler’s head.
