We’re less than two weeks away from the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home and one super talented Indonesian illustrator, Adhitya Zulkarnaen AKA AdhityaZul has been named the winner of a poster contest for the new film for an amazing piece of art which, we dare say, looks way better than the movie’s official poster.
Yesterday, the official Twitter account for the Spider-Man movies announced that Adhitya was one of three winners for a fan poster contest held by Marvel.

In Adhitya’s poster (third photo in the tweet), Spider-Man is posing in front of Quentin Beck AKA Mysterio, Spidey’s longtime villain in the comics, along with the landmarks of London and Venice, both of which are settings for Spider-Man: Far From Home.

“Congratulations to Adhitya Zulkarnaen, who has been successfully selected as one of the #SpiderManFarFromHome @talenthouse fan art competition winners. We are proud!” Sony Pictures Indonesia congratulated Adhitya in a tweet.
Earlier this month, Adhitya’s fan poster was reposted by actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays Mysterio in his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut, as a story on his Instagram account.
Amazingly, this isn’t Adithya’s first win in a Marvel fan art competition. He previously won the Venom fan art competition as selected by the lead actor himself, Tom Hardy, in October of last year.

In a tweet published yesterday, Adhitya said the official license for the two alternative posters he made are now under Marvel and Sony.

“I hope the two characters will be in one film one day and I’ll get the chance [to draw them] in one picture. I’m grateful I got a lot of surprises from God these past couple of years,” Adhitya wrote in the tweet above.
