Official Spider

Tom Holland, Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and the Spider-Verse cast appear in a Spider-Man poster parodying Taylor Swift’s Eras tour.

Ahead of the Spider-Men cavalcade that will come in the animated Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse comes a brand new Eras Tour parody poster from Taylor Swift. Across the Spider-Verse is the sequel to 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which followed one-universe Spider-Man Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) as he teamed up with various Spider- Men of the entire multiverse. . This included a middle-aged Spider-Man (Jake Johnson), Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), the anime SP//dr (Kimiko Glenn), the anthropomorphic pig Spider-Ham (John Mulaney), and the intense Spider- Man Noir (Nicolas Cage).

Today, Sony Pictures (via The Direct) shared a poster celebrating the many different iterations of Spider-Man over the past two decades. The image is a parody of the poster promoting Taylor Swift’s upcoming Eras Tour, which celebrates the many different looks and musical styles the iconic singer has gone through since the start of her career. Tom Holland’s live-action Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe stands front and center, surrounded by various tiles depicting the Spider-Men played by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire, as well as a variety of alternate Spider-Men who come from different universes in the Spider-Verse movies. Check out the full size poster below:

Spider-Man has a history of different iterations

This isn’t the first meme parody the company has created to highlight Spider-Man’s legacy, as they’ve also recreated the famous “Spider-Man pointing” meme featuring Holland, Maguire, and Garfield while making promoting Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2021. However, Spider-Man is even older than any of the three performers, having been born in Marvel Comics in 1962. The teenager who received superpowers after being bitten by a radioactive spider came to life under seemingly endless forms across film and television since then.

Spider-Man has been played by many different voice actors in various animated series, starting with the 1967 cartoon Spider-Man, starring Paul Soles. Although the first major project to feature him in live-action was 2002’s Spider-Man starring Maguire, two previous television adaptations featured the character in live-action: the short-lived 1978 The Amazing Spider-Man and the Japanese series Spider-Man in that same year. After Maguire’s stint as Spider-Man 3 in 2007, Garfield took on the role of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 and its sequel in 2014 before Holland stepped in to play the character in the MCU from from Captain America: Civil War in 2016, which led into his solo debut in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming.

This Eras Poster parody is both a tribute to that whole story and a nifty way to get fans of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse buzzing. Considering the number of different versions of Spider-Man over the years, Sony is teasing how many options it has when drawing inspiration for new characters for Miles Morales to work with. Along with the goofy new characters they can create, there’s a massive Spider-Man backstory they can still tap into for a slew of references that are sure to drive fans crazy.
