A graphic designer has recreated multiple Spider-Man movie posters using only assets from Insomniac’s Spider-Man games on PlayStation 5 to do so.
Twitter user @ursRockrider has so far recreated the posters for Andrew Garfield’s The Amazing Spider-Man and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man 2 with impeccable accuracy. By the use of PS5 in the hashtags, it’s safe to assume the PlayStation 5 versions of Spider-Man (2018) and Spider-Man: Miles Morales were used over the PlayStation 4 versions.
The recreation of the Amazing Spider-Man poster was published by Rock Rider on Tuesday. Within hours of publishing, the official Insomniac Games Twitter account responded by calling the fan art, “Simply Amazing.”

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 it up with a poster for Spider-Man 2. Insomniac responded to this poster as well and tweeted it out to their one 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 blockbuster Spider-Man game from 2018 on PlayStation 5’s launch day in 2020. Since then, Insomniac announced Spider-Man 2 for launch on PlayStation 5 in 2023.
If that wasn’t enough, Insomniac also announced a Wolverine game with a “standalone story” that’s “very early” in development.
In more serious Spider-Man news, Disney is in a legal battle with the estate of Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko. The Ditko estate wants to claim ownership of Spider-Man and other Marvel heroes, but Disney says that the work was created on a “work for hire” basis and is fully owned by Marvel.
Until then, Spider-Man fans can get ready for the new movie Spider-Man: No Way Home. It’s currently set to hit theaters on December 17. An MCU special is coming to Disney+ on November 12 that will hopefully give us a new sneak peek at the highly-anticipated movie.
