Los Angeles-based art director Mauricio Abril has created a cute illustration of toddler Spider-Man being reunited with his group of little Avenger pals at the playground. Abril made the piece in response to a deal between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios that allows Spidey to appear in a future film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Previously, Abril made an illustration of young Spider-Man being pulled off a movie set while his famed Avenger friends made a Marvel film.
Reunited and it feels so good! When I created the first ‘Poor Spidey‘ piece, it was a gag illustration after the dismay of watching ‘Amazing Spiderman 2‘ and never did I think it would’ve been posted and reposted so many times across the internet.
BUT the craziest thing I found out from someone who works for a popular website that went through the hacked Sony emails is that my “Poor Spidey” was attached in a chain of emails throughout the company. So of course I wanted to create a followup after the news of the deal went public. With that said, I hope you’re all excited cause Spidey and the Avengers are reunited.
