Fantastic 'Man of Steel' & 'Dark Knight Rises' Fan Art Poster Diptych
We've featured plenty of fantastic fan art and posters before, but what I came across today is particularly awesome because it pertains to two highly anticipated upcoming DC Comics projects - Zack Snyder's Man of Steel and Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. As we know, Chris Nolan is actually the link between the two, serving as producer on Man of Steel. Artist Al Pennyworth on deviantArt (via FYMP Tumblr) created two posters that hint at that link as side-by-side they form a spectacular diptych, one for Metropolis in Man of Steel, one for Gotham in The Dark Knight Rises. I just love this, check it out below!
Click on either one to see them full-size over on his deviantArt page. Great work, I really want these printed.
Pennyworth doesn't explain much behind his inspiration, but I'd say it's self-explanatory anyway. I only wish that Superman was a bit more visible on the Man of Steel poster, as I think that's him on top of the globe, but it would've been cooler to see him flying like Bats. He also designed a series of minimalistic posters for Marvel's The Avengers, which simply have an icon for each superhero - they're good, too. I just love that we're seeing fan artwork this fantastic this early on, since Superman: Man of Steel isn't out until June 2013 and The Dark Knight Rises in July 2012. And I love that these two look so perfect side-by-side. I'm sure this is only the beginning of lots of Superman and Batman fan art to come over the next two years.
