Although Spider-Man: Homecoming came out for most western audiences in July; the film is still yet to premiere in China. The web slinger himself, Tom Holland has previously undertook a press trail in Japan this month before pausing to film his new movie, Chaos Walking in Montreal. However, China is the last place for Spider-Man to debut and its marketing material is going out with a bang.
Marvel’s newest instalment has previously been under scrutiny for its lacklustre posters but these new Chinese posters show a more fun side to the character. In many of the pictures, it shows Spider-Man doing tourist activities in and around China. So, if you ever wanted to imagine Spider-Man on a horse, or cuddling pandas instead of fighting crime and driving an Audi, then check out the gallery above.
Spider-Man’s fling with the 80’s
Peter Parker’s latest outing has currently made over $700m at the worldwide box office with $319m of that coming from its domestic gross. That currently puts it at No. 7 on the MCU ranking board and No. 1 for a high school comedy film this year. Director Jon Watts wished the film to have a fun and entertaining 80’s feel. Therefore, the cast were ordered to watch a plethora of 80’s films. Some of these included The Breakfast Club and My Cousin Vinny, which stars Aunt May’s Marissa Tomei. It seems fitting that these Chinese posters reflect the fun and playful nature of the MCU’s version of Peter Parker.
Spider-Man: Homecoming will be released in China on September 8 before coming to DVD later this year. Jon Watts and Tom Holland will also return for a Spider-Man sequel in July, 2019 after Spidey makes an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War next year. Spider-Man: Homecoming stars Tom Holland, Zendaya Coleman, Michael Keaton, Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr.
