Captain America Movie Poster



The first poster for the upcoming Captain America movie has been released and it bears at least some resemblance (even down to the color scheme) to a cover I drew several years ago:



I don't know if the poster was inspired by the cover to Captain America #4 or if it's just a coincidence, but at least some of the concept art appears to have been based on drawings I did during the course of my run on Cap (see below), so it's likely that it may have been the inspiration. Either way, I think the poster looks great and am looking forward to the movie!

You are being FAR to generous and humble with that quote....I agree, you are owed SOMETHING for all of this...

Steve - Please lobby to get yourself back on Cap (unless they change the comic costume to reflect the movie, then screw it!).

Your painting for FF #1 looks FANTASTIC!

When will we see another Cap lithograph? We need a Steve Rogers after WWII one!

Peace!

This is another proof that you need come back to Captain America.

FF rocks but I really miss your artwork there.

That's NOOOO coincidence. You and maybe in some aspects Hitch are clear bases for the movie concepts. You should be proud (and be getting points!)

Your work was clearly the inspiration for these. Great graphic designers spend more time on effects... they depend on great artists for inspiration

Steve, Your artwork is impressive. I like the cover #4 of captain america looking down at his shield in a grave yard. Would you tell me the significance? Is he mourning the dead? or reflecting on his own death? thanks bob

Hey Bob - in the story Cap is at Arlington Cemetery visiting the graves of the two other men who also wore the Captain America costume. Thanks for your comments!
