Sideshow Collectibles has teamed with Marvel Studios to present a new line of limited edition fine art prints featuring concept art and keyframes from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The line will feature images that have appeared in the Marvel Art of Film books, and on promotional teaser posters.
The collection will include work by artists Ryan Meinerding (Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development), Andy Park (Marvel Studios Visual Development Supervisor), Adi Granov (Marvel Studios Lead Concept Artist, and Marvel Comics Cover Artist), and more.
The first release in the line will be Thor: Ragnarok by Park. In the piece the mighty Thor, God of Thunder, is pitted against the Incredible Hulk in an intense moment of intergalactic gladiatorial combat.
“Along with designing the vast characters you see in the film, we also painted keyframe illustrations, which are pivotal story moments to help visualize what the film could look like. One of the most iconic moments is the gladiatorial battle between Thor and Hulk. In classic comic book tradition, two heroes are thrown together in a situation where they have to fight each other. We got a glimpse of these two hot-headed warriors go at it in the first Avengers film, and now we get to see them finish their fight in this classic clash of the titans. In this illustration, I wanted to capture this iconic battle in a way that shows off each character in the strongest way. It doesn’t spell out who actually has the advantage. It’s the moment right before the clash. This is the battle between the two strongest Avengers. Who will win?”
Measuring 18×24″, each print will be hand signed by the artist, and will have a custom designer frame option available. Limited to an edition of 400. The framed version of the Thor: Ragnarok Fine Art Print will be available first for pre-order, priced at $285 on Friday, November 17th. If supplies last, unframed versions of the print will be available for pre-order on Monday, November 20th, priced at $125. Check out more information here.
