For the first time since Netflix launched their own corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one of their properties will be making their way to SDCC as part of Marvel Television. With a little over two months to go until the first season of Luke Cage debuts on Netflix, showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker will be joined by the main cast to not only host a panel, but to also do a signing for those lucky enough to attend. This, of course, means that Marvel had to design an awesome, exclusive poster for fans to take home from the signing. Much like his work on the first season poster for Daredevil, which was designed for NYCC, Marvel Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada took on the task of designing an eye-catching poster for Luke Cage‘s presence at SDCC. And as you’ll see below, he did a rather fantastic job.
Speaking to the folks at TV Insider, Quesada expressed the difficulties involved when it comes to crafting a poster for superhero shows. Of course, as we’ve seen with his previous work on this posters, Quesada always makes sure to capture the characters perfectly in a rather minimalist way.
“There’s always great pressure with superhero posters,” Quesada says. “You’ve got one shot to encapsulate a character with a pose that’s provocative and that you hope will someday be iconic.”
