The Spider-Man fever grips India through art

The superhero swings from Taj Mahal to India Gate in various graffiti art paintings

Published: 03rd July 2019

Tom Holland's Spider-Man: Far From Home is yet to be released in India, but the iconic web-slinger has already reached India through art.

In anticipation of the superhero film, students of art painted Spider-Man graffiti art on the streets of Mumbai last week. Some art students in Bengaluru and Pune also brought their version of Spider-Man alive through graffiti art. In one, Spider-Man is seen on top of India Gate, while in another he is on top of the architectural marvel of India — Taj Mahal. He can also be seen in front of the Gateway Of India. 

Taking the India story forward, one image shows him with a classical dancer — and it seems like he is also trying his hand at Indian classical dance. 

Thanks to the widespread fan frenzy for the film, Spider-Man: Far From Home will arrive in India a day earlier than scheduled. The film, which was scheduled to be released on Friday (July 5), will now open tomorrow. Sony Pictures Entertainment India will release the film in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

The Jon Watts-directorial follows the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame which ended with the death of Iron Man, played by Robert Downey Jr. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal is entering the franchise with the role of Mysterio. Holland has shared that the plot of the new instalment is closely tied with the concept of a multiverse, saying, "It is a very exciting prospect and there are much bigger things that happen on the horizon."
