IMAX’s Spider-Man: Far from Home poster has gone viral. However, it’s not because it’s an epic representation of the sequel with some mind blowing graphics. Instead, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have picked up on the design and how it’s not quite up to snuff when compared to other MCU posters released over the years. This has inspired the fans to go off and create some of their own designs mocking the IMAX designs and even rising above it.
The Far From Home IMAX poster is rather unremarkable and less epic than say those of Captain Marvel or Ant-Man and the Wasp, both of which have posters fans wanted to plaster on their walls. Far From Home‘s design is kind of cartoon-like and features some bad and obvious passport stamps along with some cut and paste images of Tom Holland, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Samuel L. Jackson. While it’s not the greatest poster, it’s certainly far from the worst, though some MCU fans will disagree about that.
Some of the fan-made Spider-Man: Far From Home posters are picking up on the cut and paste deal and are making their own with the same aesthetic, but in hilariously wrong spots, like putting the Sony logo over Ned’s face or making Peter Parker’s face only half-visible. Some of the other posters look like they were created using a bad collage app on a smartphone or like the old school Windows Paint. They range from pretty bad to really, really bad as they continue to mock the IMAX one-sheet.

With the latest Spider-Man: Far From Home poster, fans are hoping the movie will be a lot better than the IMAX design when it hits theaters in a few weeks. Thankfully, the sequel looks like it’s going to be perfect for fans who are waiting to see how Avengers: Endgame has changed the MCU going forward. It’s already looking like it’s going to be a monster at the box office, with estimates going as high as $160 million for the first six days as it capitalizes on the 4th of July holiday week.
As with anything these days, negativity spreads a lot faster than positivity. The IMAX Spider-Man: Far From Home poster isn’t terrible, but it has inspired some pretty funny original poster ideas that Sony should utilize in their marketing campaign for fun, like the opposite of the excellent fan-made posters for Avengers: Endgame that were created to further promote the movie. Whatever the case may be, these are here on the internet for all to see and we have compiled some of the best ones below. You can star with the IMAX version on Twitter that started it all and then check out some the fan-made Spider-Man: Far From Home posters below.
