People Are Speculating That Tye Sheridan's Leg On The "Ready Player One" Poster Was Photoshopped

"There is absolutely no logical explanation for that ready player one poster, they really did just randomly make one of his legs 7 feet long."

The film, set in the year 2045 in a dystopian version of an area just outside of Oklahoma City, doesn't hit theaters until March 30, 2018, but it's already got people talking — and not for the the reason you'd suspect.

Attention has been drawn to Sheridan's right leg on the poster, which some say looks abnormally long, fully stretched out, as his character, Wade Watts, climbs one of the "stacks," the housing units constructed by placing trailers on top of one another to save space in Watts' impoverished town.

Warner Bros. did not immediately return BuzzFeed News' request for comment on the matter.

Some pondered the reasoning for making Sheridan's legs "7 feet long."

Others asked pressing questions, like who did this?

Most were surprised that the visual was OK'd for release, especially with the seemingly glaring error.

The poster reminded folks of a similar issue earlier in the year with another Warner Bros. movie, when Alicia Vikander's neck appeared doctored in the new Tomb Raider poster.

It was a true "hold my beer" moment.

This ultimately led to people making a lot of jokes about massively extended limbs.

I can't quite put my finger on it but there's something a little off about the Ready Player One poster

People couldn't get enough.

The artist behind the READY PLAYER ONE poster finds all your long leg jokes very offensive.

Hmm, does Watts have some sort of superpower we're not aware of?

So I'm guessing the plot of Ready Player One is about a boy with stretchy legs?

BTW, here's a rendering of the real* poster on the right.
