The Incredible Hulk No More

Spider-Man 50 and The Incredible Hulk Poster

Our friends at io9 have noticed a similarities between the new poster for The Incredible Hulk and the cover of The Amazing Spider-Man #50. I’m guessing that this homage was probably intentional. The image also might seem familiar to those of you who have seen Spider-Man 2, as the issue’s storyline “Spider-Man No More!” was used as part of that Spider-Man film adaptation. Others have noticed that the poster is also similar to the poster for Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver, pictured below.
