Check These Out: Amusing Posters for David Lynch's Spider-Man
What if David Lynch directed a Spider-Man movie? Ohhh this is good. With all the wackiness we're seeing from Julie Taymor's Broadway "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" show, let's have a little fun with some other wacky Spider-Man artwork. Over on his own official forums, comic book writer Warren Ellis kicked off an online contest asking users to: "design a poster for a movie called Spider-Man directed by David Lynch. This is all you know." The results so far are hilarious (found via Badass Digest) and I've put up a few of my faves, including one with the best tagline: "Where does the Spider end and the Man begin?" Check ’em out!
Both of these come from Super Punch but each are credited to the original designers: Chris Thornley (right) and Paul Sizer (left). The one at the very top was another one from the Super Punch blog. You can see most of the entries on his Whitechapel post or if you want to get involved and make one yourself, head there. For those that don't know, David Lynch is the eccentric director behind films like Eraserhead, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Mulholland Dr. and Inland Empire, but he hasn't directed a feature film since '06. I just thought these were amusing to check out, not as movie news, but as a bit of online humor. Hope you liked them, too!
