The promotional advertisements for Ant-Man & the Wasp have been a breath of fresh air in an otherwise drab streak of uninspired posters from Marvel Studios (with the exception of Black Panther and Thor: Ragnarok). This latest one from Empire Magazine is no exception. Designed by one of Marvel Studios’ top artists, Andy Park, it is directly inspired by the comic covers of the Silver Age era. Check it out!
Here’s the OFFICIAL reveal of the exclusive subscribers only cover to @empiremagazine I had the honor of painting recently! I wanted to do that classic comic book type of cover look. Now who’s excited for this film! #ME #AntManandtheWasp #AntMan #TheWasp @MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/zdarxmrGaU

Best part of this poster is the beautifully rendered Ghost behind Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne. This makes me even more excited for the visual flair the powers the villainess will display onscreen. As for the layout, it really echoes the super cheesy fun posters of the day. If only the studio commisioned more artists like Park to do the main posters of the films.
