SDCC: Alex Ross paints Seth Meyers ‘The Awesomes’ … for some reason

Seth Meyers’ comic cred is pretty well established at this point. Aside from hosting comic writers Brian Michael Bendis and Matt Fraction on his NBC Late Night show, having a Kevin Maguire-drawn Twitter icon and having written his own Spider-Man one-shot, the comedian is the head writer and star of Hulu’s animated superhero parody The Awesomes.

And now, that series has enlisted painter Alex Ross to create one of his photorealistic works imagining the show’s voice cast as live action versions of their cartoon counterparts — including the likes of Rashida Jones, Taran Killam and Bobby Lee. But what exactly the art is being used for is a mystery.

Awesomes and Late Night writer Mike Shoemaker shared the painting via his Twitter page where he wrote: “The great Alex Ross painted the movie poster for the live-action #TheAwesomes movie. #tweetFromAnAlternateUniverse” That last bit sticks a fork in the extremely unlikely idea that this is a stealth live action announcement, but whether the image is meant to announce more episodes, a publishing tie in or something else remains to be seen.
