For readers puzzled over the reason behind this exhibition, Licensing Expo 2022 is nothing like CineamCon where attendees are shown trailers and provided announcements. Rather it’s a business event dedicated for licensed IPs and brands looking to partner with potential investors to develop their projects. So studios typically present posters, banners and early renders as a first look at upcoming projects at their exhibit booth.
What did you think of the posters showcased at Licensing Expo 2022 day 1? Let us know in the comments below or pen your opinion to our writer @RAKarthikPrasad to discuss all things DC & Marvel.
