Hot off the release of today’s trailer tease — which introduces some nifty new Spider-tech — a fan (via Twitter) has dropped a brilliant piece of crossover art, boasting Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool on a poster that parodies Friday’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming” one-sheet — instead, hyping the release of “Deadpool 2” (which is…also coming).
Take a look at the parody poster — which not only sees the Merc with a Mouth push the wall-crawler into a body of water, but also has the character deface the Avengers logo on the team’s titular tower — below:
Sadly, this crossover could never actually happen — even though the two heroes team-up fairly often in the comics, and even share their own series — Fox of course owns the film rights to Deadpool, while Sony and Disney currently hold the big-screen rights to Spidey.
A team-up between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” is the first cinematic outing featuring the web-slinger since Andrew Garfield’s “Amazing Spider-Man 2.” The film marks the wall-crawler’s first solo movie as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is also occupied by fellow Marvel heroes such as the Avengers, Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy. Holland’s Spidey of course made his well-received debut in Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” in which he was recruited by Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark/Iron Man to face-off against Team Cap.
“Spider-Man: Homecoming” follows the events of “Captain America: Civil War.” The film, described as “a coming-of-age story,” finds Peter attending his high school for gifted kids, trying to impress his new benefactor Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and also dealing with a pesky arch enemy, the Vulture (Michael Keaton).
Directed by Jon Watts (“Clown”), written by John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (“Vacation”) and starring Tom Holland, Michael Keaton, Marisa Tomei, Robert Downey Jr., Zendaya, Donald Glover and many, many others, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” swings into theaters on July 7, 2017.
