With just a couple of months to go until Captain Marvel launches onto our cinema screens, and this IMAX poster has got me hyped!
I’ve been hooked on Captain Marvel comics since the character was reintroduced in 2004. Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist David Lopez Lopez really brought to life the current image of the character in those pages.
Such was the success of that, and subsequent comics series starring Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, that she will now become the first female character to have a standalone movie in the Marvel Extended Universe.
Thankfully Marvel have not only paid attention to the success of the character, but also the fantastic aesthetic created on those comic book pages. With only a few tweaks, Captain Marvel will appear on-screen this March looking very much like she did in issue #1 five years ago.
This new IMAX poster pays tribute to one of my absolute favourite unique features of Captain Marvel’s costume. The helmet that allows her hair to flow freely, mohican style.
Captain Marvel will be played by Brie Larson and is set to hit cinemas in North America and the UK from March 8th.
