Why Are Marvel Movie Posters So Ugly?


Let’s not mince words: The most recent Spider-Man Homecoming poster is awful. It’s overcrowded, messy on a basic design level, and it doesn’t capture the mood or tone of the film or its main character. Indeed, he is barely the central feature, as your eye is more drawn to glowing Tony Stark in the top-right corner or Iron Man on the opposite side.

Still, despite the fact that the title was previously confirmed by the developer, with plenty of hints about new additions being made to the gameplay mechanics, as well as its brand new setting, the trailer and preview make for a tantalizing return for the long-running open world series after a brief hiatus.

The trailer quickly immerses viewers in the world of Ancient Egypt, giving players a taste of what it will be like to venture into a setting quite unlike anything the games have attempted before, while also providing some idea of what’s in store in terms of the game’s content, what it reveals about the titular assassins and, obviously, the group’s origins.
