If you're a Marvel fan who lives in the United Kingdom, then you better reserve a very special spot on your wall for Carol Danvers.
Artist Matt Ferguson, who has designed various theatre-exclusive posters for Marvel movies such as Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Infinity War has just revealed his latest piece of stunning artwork: an official poster for Marvel Studios' highly-anticipated film, Captain Marvel.
The poster focuses solely on the titular superheroine in full flight, as she soars over the Earth and up into the dark skies of the cosmos. The character's binary powers are on full display, and her iconic logo takes shape behind her, as the brightest star in space. The already-iconic signature "Higher. Further. Faster." tagline -- which was recently revealed to be said in the movie itself -- hovers over the character not just as a reminder, but as a promise.
Here's my official poster for Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel. I'm so happy I got to work on this film, finally a female superhero that BabyFerg can look up to! I decided to make the comp solely about Carol Danvers and pared back the title treatment so you are drawn more to her. pic.twitter.com/jLFBZ40Tda— Matt Ferguson (@Cakes_Comics) February 5, 2019
The artist revealed the poster on his personal Twitter account, offering a bit of hindsight into his process. "I decided to make the comp solely about Carol Danvers and pared back the title treatment so you are drawn more to her," he wrote of his epic piece.
In a follow-up tweet, Ferguson confirmed that this poster would be given away during special screenings of the film at Odeon Cinemas in the United Kingdom, from March 8 to 10.
Marvel fans should be no strangers to Ferguson's stunning work. His iconic art can be found on the covers of all the movies included in the limited edition boxed sets of Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he has produced stunning posters for every other movie since then, from Doctor Strange to Thor: Ragnarok.
Captain Marvel is an origin story set to take place in the past of the MCU, before the character joins Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Endgame later this year.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau. The film arrives March 8, 2019.
