To celebrate the much anticipated 3rd installment of the Iron Man series, Mondo had artists Martin Ansin & Phantom City Creative each create a poster leading up to its Friday release in theaters.
Two 24-by-36 posters — one standard, one a color variant — are by artist Martin Ansin and feature not only Downey but also Don Cheadle as Iron Patriot, Gwyneth Paltrow as Pepper Potts, Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and scenes from the movie. The standard edition is limited to 450 and costs $50, while the variant numbers 200 and is $75.
“It’s Iron Man comics that led me into drawing when I was a little kid,” Ansin says. “All it took for me to get hooked was an oversized shellhead collection by Tuska in black and white, magic markers and a week sick in bed. Doing this poster has been amazing luck — and a tough job, with that 5-year-old fan keeping tabs on it.”
Toronto’s Phantom City Creative designed a glow-in-the-dark, 24-inch-by-36-inch screenprint that features a bevy of the armor suits worn by the Marvel Comics character in the movies and the comic books. Only 250 are available in the edition, at $45 each.
“To me, Tony Stark’s real superpower is his intelligence and ingenuity,” says Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative. “With the Iron Man 3 armory poster, I wanted to showcase that by featuring a schematic chart of all the Iron Man suits with Stark himself front and center.”
