Earlier last Wednesday, Warner Bros. released a new promo poster for Justice League. Although the Man of Steel was once again left out of the picture, it instead featured The Batman at front, leading the team.
The promo poster received criticism as well as acclaimed responses from fans. Mostly, the audience were excited to see the superheroes with their heads held up high to the rising sun in the background. However, could it be possible that the poster was inspired from one of the all-time best DC Comics issues?
Recently, DC Comics Artist Alex Ross tweeted his artwork from Kingdom Come in comparison with the new Justice League promo poster. Fans can take a look at it below and be the judge of it.
The Kingdom Come artwork features the Man of Steel to the right and also includes Hal version of Green Lantern. The comic poster unites the entire team. however, DCEU’s Justice League poster only has a tagline that says “Unite the League”.
Ross did the cover painting for Kingdom Come and co-created the font for the comic along with Todd Klein. The artist initially worked on significant projects for Marvel Comics. Fans can check out his bio here.
Ross’s twitter account has not yet been verified. However, Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is following the account, which proves its authenticity.
Justice League is scheduled to hit theaters on November 17th, 2017. Although the Man of Steel hasn’t been a part of the movie’s promotion, Director Zack Snyder confirmed that his character has significance in the film.
