‘Captain America: The First Avenger’ crew posters will be prize at Hero Complex Film Festival

June 11, 2011 | 11:57 a.m.

Marvel Studios printed up 100 copies of a special poster just for the cast and crew of “Captain America: The First Avenger” and we’ll be giving away five of them on Sunday at the Hero Complex Film Festival in Hollywood. The retro-minded poster (and a nod to the first issue of the comic book) was created by the talented Paolo Rivera, whose many credits include covers for “Fantastic Four,” “Spectacular Spider-Man” and “X-Men: Unlimited.” I’m thinking that one of those posters might go to the person in audience with the best Marvel Universe costume.

The giveaway will be part of our big Marvel presentation on Sunday. We’ll be showing, for the first time anywhere, the new trailer for “Captain America: The First Avenger,” the wartime adventure directed by Joe Johnston and starring Chris Evans as the star-spangled character that has been fighting the good fight for 70 years. At 4 p.m., we’ll be screening the hit film “Iron Man” and, after the credits roll, director Jon Favreau will come to the stage for a lively Q&A that you will not want to miss — there may a big surprise in store for the audience. Also, Neal Kirby, the son of the late, great Jack Kirby, will be attending, for a special acknowledgment of his father’s amazing legacy.

    Man! I wish they'd have some way someone who can't fly to CA could win one? Maybe being the biggest Captain America geek would qualify you guys to mail me one? ;) Or maybe just cause I asked pretty please?

    Marvel Studios ought to market that poster. Fans would snap them up. It's better than the official posters for the movie. Why oh why won't they let us buy it?

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised that people are showing up to these movies in costume. After all, the theaters in which they're showing have people costumed as superheroes standing around in front for the tourists all the time. I agree that Marvel should consider marketing an edition of those poster as a general release item.

    Oh, and Rod? Nice try. But if they were to send one to somebody for being the biggest Captain America geek, they'd be sending it to me. :)

    I would love this poster as well. This would be a nice "mini poster" giveaway at theaters. At the very least, a higher res version released to the web so we can use it as wallpaper and/or print an 8 1/2 x 11 for use on cube walls at workplaces would be nice for the fans. :)
