With Spider-Man: Homecoming just around the corner, it's time to look up to the skies in search of the popular Marvel hero. Fans have been treated to a new poster that sent the internet into a frenzy, and an amazing new billboard has also been on show. Sony has been busy promoting the movie with these really interesting marketing campaigns, taking the anticipation for the upcoming MCU installment to new heights - quite literally.

The popular airline ran an eye-catching marketing campaign this week, filling a flight with Spider-Man cosplayers in order to promote the upcoming MCU adventure, Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In order to be on Jetstar Airways' first flight from Tokyo to Osaka, each passenger had to dress up as their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. There was even a guy dressed up as Tony Stark, giving the cosplaying passengers the (almost) true Marvel experience.

As you can see from these Twitter photos, the cosplayers dressed in a variety of Spider-Man costumes. There's cosplayers representing costumes from the comic books, as well as popular versions seen on the big screen. Unfortunately, nobody is wearing the super cool Iron Spider armor, a fan favorite among comic book fans, but who are we to complain? Perhaps it would have been too uncomfortable to wear while sitting in the middle seat.

It would also have been funny to see Peter Parker's Fantastic Four costume, which is essentially the classic blue spandex and paper bag over his head. Either way, how cool would it be to fly first class with a group of fellow Spider-fans?

And It's Not The First Movie-Themed Airplane!

Airplanes are a great way for studios to get fans pumped about an upcoming movie. When one of those comes rolling down the runway, it's sure to make heads turn. However, this -themed plane is actually just one of the many aircrafts to have been decked-out in promotional designs.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice

Back in 2016, Turkish airlines promoted by painting the Batman logo on one side, and Superman on the other.


WestJet also used over 170 gallons of paint to spruce up their Boeing 737, which surely helped get the word out about Disney's animated mega-hit, .

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

On an entirely different note, How often do you get a chance to fly the friendly skies aboard a dragon? Air New Zealand graced its Boeing 777-300 with a 54-meter-long depiction of Smaug from Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug:

It looks like these Spider-Man super fans got the ride of their lives and simultaneously showed their love for one of 's fan-favorite characters. Fortunately, we can do the same when hits theaters on July 7, 2017.
