Yesterday was another stellar day for fans of Sony and Marvel's upcoming film Spider-Man: Homecoming. With the release of the third trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming came a rather confusing poster, though. As you can see up above, while Spider-Man and Peter Parker are both featured on the poster... so is everything else, turning what should have been another easy win for the Sony and Marvel promotional machines into a mess.

For most of us, we were stuck trying to figure out who Donald Glover would be portraying in the film based on the 10 words he uttered in the trailer, but Twitter wasn't here for this poster, and let their feels be known in a serious roast session of this poster, many which included hilariously edited versions of the poster.

First up was the "why the hell is Iron Man all up in the poster" party.

Others just figured ,"Why not throw in all of the leading Hollywood males."

I'll be honest: I tried to improve the very busy SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING poster, and I no longer know where the original ends and mine begins pic.twitter.com/Sazywe9gwh

Others just had very specific things to pick at, all of which are valuable points to make.

And because the internet is so helpful, many just felt like they could fix it on their own.

Although some speculate that Marvel and Sony were just trying to cut corners...

Whatever the case may be, they at least got it right with the previous poster.
