A brand new Spider-Man: Far From Home fan-made poster reimagines the iconic kiss from Sam Raimi's 2002 Spider-Man but with Tom Holland's Peter Parker and Zendaya's Michelle. Set after the events of Avengers 4, the Jon Watts-helmed sequel is poised to open the MCU's mysterious Phase 4 and will deal with the aftermath of Thanos' deadly snap in Avengers: Infinity War. Not much is known regarding specific story details yet, but principal photography on the sequel, which started earlier this month in England, is currently underway.
Called a comic book movie classic, Raimi's first Spider-Man film still holds up after almost two decades. While it includes several unforgettable moments, arguably the most iconic one is the upside-down kiss between Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Kirsten Dunst's Mary Jane "MJ" Watson. With brand new live-action iterations of both characters in the MCU, it's unclear whether or not Marvel Studios will attempt to recreate the iconic moment.
While that remains to be seen, digital artist ultraraw26 took it upon himself to visualize what a version of the epic kiss would look like with Holland's Peter Parker and Zendaya's Michelle. Making sure that it somehow fits the current MCU narrative, the creator even used the Soul World as the backdrop of the scene - which insinuates Michelle was also part of the unfortunate half of the universe who turned to dust after Thanos' deadly snap. Evidently, the image is nothing more than a fun nod to Raimi's original film, but it's still a cool-looking poster nonetheless. Check the poster, which was uploaded to the artist's official Instagram, below:

Regardless of how iconic it was, it's doubtful Marvel Studios has plans to recreate the scene, especially since they're veering away from almost everything that the Raimi trilogy and Marc Webb series did with regard to the live-action adaptation of Spider-Man - skipping the usual Uncle Ben death scene and not featuring the hero swinging through skyscrapers in Manhattan. Having said that, one would be shocked to know that Spider-Man: Homecoming actually included a lot of subtle references to previous Spider-Man films, including the legendary kiss. As Peter rescued his schoolmates, during the elevator crash in the Washington Monument, Karen (his suit's A.I.) suggested it's the perfect time for Peter to kiss his high school crush, Liz, as he hung upside down in front of her, but before he could make up his mind, his webs gave out.
There's no word as of yet if fans are going to see Liz back in Spider-Man: Far From Home as it turned out that she's the daughter of Homecoming's main antagonist, Adrian Toomes aka. Vulture - although Michael Keaton is expected to reprise his role in the forthcoming sequel. Michelle and Jacob Batalon's Ned, on the other hand, are already confirmed to be back as revealed by a set photo over the weekend.
