Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, proudly announces the release of a series of 7 posters honoring MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS, in theaters May 4. Mondo will be releasing character posters for each of The Avengers: Black Widow, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor and a poster featuring the full Avengers team.
Seven different talented Mondo artists have been tapped to create a poster for each member of the super hero team. Each artist will have their own take on capes, shields, hammers and masks that will make for an amazing collection when assembled. The first two posters in this incredible series are Black Widow and Hawkeye.
We’ve become very attached to doing Marvel movie posters over the past few years, specifically for Avengers-related characters, so working on the upcoming film is a huge dream come true. The participating artists have really brought some of their best work ever to the table. If you want to see the different styles the Mondo crew is capable of, look no further than this series, we couldn’t be happier with it,” said Justin Ishmael, Mondo Creative Director.
The Black Widow poster is by Mondo artist Olly Moss who provided an amazing vision of the Soviet spy and now Avenger. Mondo collaborated with artist Tom Whalen for the Hawkeye poster complete with signature bow and arrow. Additional details on both posters are below.
