A graphic designer has recreated several Spider-Man movie posters using only the assets from Insomniac’s Spider-Man games on PlayStation 5 to do this.
Twitter user @ursRockrider has so far recreated the posters of Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 2 with impeccable precision. Using the PS5 in hashtags, it’s safe to assume that the PlayStation 5 versions of Spider-Man (2018) and Spider-Man: Miles Morales were used compared to the PlayStation 4 versions.
The Amazing Spider-Man poster recreation was released on Tuesday by Rock Rider. Hours after the post, the official Insomniac Games Twitter account responded by calling the fan art “Simply Amazing.”
Simply extraordinary. 🕸️ https://t.co/zNmuHHMM96

Rock Rider responded to a Twitter user with the image of Spider-Man from the game that was used for the poster. as well as what was used for the background.
A few days later, Rock Rider followed him up with a poster for Spider-Man 2. Insomniac also responded to this poster and tweeted it to his million followers.
Wow, another awesome poster recreation from Rock! https://t.co/UaABrbtaDB

Insomniac released Spider-Man: Miles Morales and a PlayStation 5 remaster of their 2018 hit game Spider-Man on PlayStation 5 launch day in 2020. Since then, Insomniac has announced the launch of Spider-Man 2 on PlayStation. 5 in 2023.
If that wasn’t enough, Insomniac also announced a Wolverine game with a “standalone story” which is “very early” in development.
In more serious Spider-Man news, Disney is in a legal battle with the succession of Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko. The Ditko Estate wants to claim ownership of Spider-Man and other Marvel heroes, but Disney says the work was created on a “work for pay” basis and is wholly owned by Marvel.
Until then, Spider-Man fans can get ready for the new Spider-Man: No Way Home movie. It is currently set to hit theaters on December 17th. An MCU special is coming to Disney + on November 12 that will hopefully give us a new look at the highly anticipated film.
