This retro CAPTAIN AMERICA poster is one of the best pieces of promotional art I’ve seen this year but sadly it’s not something you’ll ever see in your local theater promoting the film. It’s instead a gift from Marvel to the cast and crew of CAPTAIN AMERICA handed out at the wrap party. Only 100 of the posters were printed so if you have yourself a copy, consider yourself pretty lucky (or consider yourself Tommy Lee Jones).
The art was created by Paolo Rivera, who pitched Marvel on doing the actual art for the one-sheet. Paramount, not surprisingly, had some other ideas, and Marvel instead commissioned Rivera for the limited edition print you see here. And for all those sick of Photoshop in posters, pretty much everything you see here was done with pencil, ink and paint (even the lettering). And that’s pretty damn cool
