I remember there was a contest between 3 different box art designs and this was one of them. I hated all of the possible choices, but this is likely genuine.

Also, with all the years of amazing Spiderman comic book covers wasn't that enough inspiration to come up an original but still theme fitting image?

Apparently so

Wow, that's horrendous.

I always liked Todd McFarlane's Spiderman the best.

The actual boxart is a picture of Sherlock Holmes with a dozen pipes in his mouth.

Let me tell you something. It doesn't matter, the game will be a shallow beat em' up with lousy graphic quality (much like the game from the first movie).
