Comics Inspired IMAX Posters

November 16th, 2017Comics Inspired IMAX Posters

Justice League is almost here. Soon we will be able to see all of our favorite DC comic book characters come together to fight Steppenwolf and his Parademons on the big screen. The WB marketing department is working overtime as we inch closer to the November 17 release date.

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. released character posters for the film's China release. Now, Fandango And IMAX have released two incredible movie posters for Justice League, both of which feel like they could be right from DC Comics.

This poster is clearly inspired by DC Comics artwork, even with the tagline “Stronger Together In IMAX.” The team appears to be ready for battle as they are all charging toward an oncoming enemy. The poster has a rich color palette, which echoes the brighter tone that has been emphasized in much of the recent marketing.

With the exception of Batman and Cyborg, the poster showcases a few of the Justice League’s weapons. Wonder Woman is seen holding her shield along with the Sword of Athena, Aquaman is grasping his Trident, and the Flash’s lightning bolts demonstrate the character's fast speed.

The top of the poster also uses the tagline “You Can’t Save The World Alone,” which was first used in the Alex Ross-inspired poster that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con.

The Fandango Poster Reveals Superman In A Unique Way

This might be the best Justice League poster released thus far. The Fandango poster has comic book style similar to that of the IMAX poster — only with a focus on the actors' faces instead of their physicality. This color scheme makes this poster stand out, but the real star here isn’t any of the characters along the outside of the poster; the middle of the picture is a silhouette of Superman.

Cleverly hidden in plain sight, the Man of Steel shines bright while the other heroes are circled around him. This image hints at what’s to come in this movie, as Superman represents hope in this story – and in general. The brightness of the silhouette gives us a clear indication that Superman has indeed risen from the dead.

All along, Warner Bros. has been smart enough, in the posters, the trailers and even the TV spots, not to spoil the Man of Steel’s return. We all know he’s coming back (after all, Clark Kent appears in Lois Lane's dream in the final trailer), but it's great that the studio decided not to reveal his precise appearance. Now fans are more excited than ever.

Justice League hits theaters on November 17, 2017.
