My second poster for Marvel and Joss Whedon's "The Avengers".

I tried to go for a Drew Struzan look and feel (but I'm aware I could never get to this fantastic artist's level!)

Wow. THIS is what we thought the first Avengers film would look like. Honestly, it wasn't that off from this photo. (Hawkeye costume aside.)

Not quite Struzan level but still really captures the excitement!

I'm so sorry, I did a whole parody drawing of this poster before discovering it was fanart and not an official poster all along!! [link]

It doesn't use any part of your original work, so I hope it's okay to have uploaded in my gallery (I've provided a link back to you). Let me know if it isn't, and I'll take it down. But the fact that I honestly had no idea this wasn't an official poster is a testament to your work here, so great job!!

Don't worry, it's fine. :) This poster has been out for almost two years now so it's no big deal.

The iPic theater in my area displays posters for upcoming movies on an LCD screen outside their lobby. Weeks back, they were showcasing this poster. I spotted it from a distance and waited for it to queue up again just to make sure I wasn't seeing things. Amazing the places fan art can go, right?

Haha yeah it's weird. I would understand if the movie was still months away but now that it's out, there are dozens of official posters to choose from, why pick an obviously fan made one?

I saw this poster on a magazine just then!
Did you allow that?
themadbutcher's avatar
Nope, but it has been popping up in various odd places like that haha

This is a request. Could you do a Godzilla meets The Avengers poster? I'm writing the film, and this will help out a lot. It's basically the same team you have here. Just add Godzilla, Loki and Red Skull and it'll be complete. I'm making one for facebook. I'm sure everyone here would like you to try that. Feel free you use any Godzilla that would look like someting we would see in more modern films. Thanks.

But try to put it on here. Take your time. I'm in no hurry.

Not bad. Not bad at all. Unfortunatly, Hawkeye won't have that costume and Black Widow's hair will be shorter. But you had to use what was avalible, and it turned out great.
