These Chinese posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming are just plain awesome


Too bad the movie isn't set in China

Spider-Man: Homecoming was a critical hit and has performed quite well at the box office. As of this writing, the movie has earned more than $737 million worldwide. The latest MCU entry is opening up in China soon, where it will surely make more ducats. (I don't know how many yuan is in a ducat.)

Several Chinese posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming have surfaced online, and they are delightful. They feature your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man in various Chinese locales. It's like what Spidey did on his summer vacation abroad. There he is hanging out by the Great Wall of China. Oh, and there he is daintily touching the point of the Oriental Pearl Tower in Shanghai. And with pandas. And on horseback? And wearing a rice hat on a fishing boat in the middle of nowhere?

Legit, guys: These are goofy and so much fun, and arguably better than the American posters for Spider-Man: Homecoming. Or, you know, maybe just one of them. Check out all of the posters in the gallery.

If memory serves, the last time Spider-Man was in China (well, Hong Kong, not mainland China) was in an episode of the 1979 Spider-Man TV show titled "The Chinese Web". You can check out a clip of that below. (The action starts at 1:07.) Spider-Man: Homecoming hits Chinese theaters on September 8th.
