Today, Marvel Studios released their new book The Art of Marvel Studios and they sent me a copy. The surprisingly heavy box set collects the previously-released hard-cover art books for Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, and Captain America: The First Avenger. These books are really a treat for anyone who wants to go through the concept art of these movies and see all the costume and make-up designs that weren’t used (there are some particularly horrific Red Skull designs that didn’t make the final cut). The box set also includes a promo poster for The Avengers. It’s simply the cover art to the box set with The Avengers logo, but since the cover art is nice, it’s a neat poster to have. Consider it a cool bonus to a box set that has the MSRP of $150.00. I don’t think I’d buy the set, but I also don’t have a spare 150 bucks lying around. If I did, I would consider getting it for my coffee table or a brick wall I needed to prop-up (seriously, this thing weighs almost 13 pounds).
Hit the jump to check out the poster. Click here to buy The Art of Marvel Studios from Amazon where it’s currently going for $94.50. And if you missed it, here’s a first look at the toy packaging for The Avengers movie.
In case you were wondering, the poster measures 22″ x 36″:
