Patton Oswalt's 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Pitch Gets Amazing Poster

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Infinity Gauntlet

If you're confused, here's the deal: On tonight's episode of NBC's comedy series "Parks & Recreation," comedian Patton Oswalt has a guest appearance and offers some sort of filibuster during a town hall meeting. Well, in an outtake, he improvises an entire plot for Star Wars: Episode VII and the crew just let's him ramble for eight minutes. While he starts off fine with important nerdy Star Wars details, he ventures off into nerd heaven and imagines a world where Thanos is the villain, using the reality gem from the Infinity Gauntlet to exist in the Star Wars universe, and from there it turns into a crazy movie. Someone with Photoshop skills has crafted this amazing poster for Patton Oswalt's pitch and it's just glorious. Look!

Here's the poster for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Gauntlet of Infinity made by EW:

This might be the best poster ever created. It has everything all the nerds want, and it even evokes Drew Struzan's style a little bit. If J.J. Abrams is paying attention, he should probably get Michael Arndt to stop writing and just let Patton Oswalt takeover. If Disney released this movie, it would perpetually make money until the end of time. We might have to pack up the Internet, because it's not going to get better than this.

    We all know this movie will never happen; and I wonder "why the f**k not??!!" It's totally absurd to mix the two movies, but we have tons of hardcore SW nerds and Marvel nerds to create such a great picture, with Patton leading the way. It would make tons of money all from the nerd aspect, the ultimate sci fi/fantasy fans, and for the genuine curiosity of everyone else eager to see two colossal franchise empires go all out together! The force vs super powers!

    How can it be that a mock poster looks better than most real posters?
    • Ross
      Thought the same. Better than almost every official poster I've seen here lately.

      Because official posters try way too hard to be cool and sophisticated...this one embraces its absurdity and silliness that's why it feels better than most of pretentious official crap...imo

    Epically hilarious

    I don't get why the so called nerds (what ever the hell that means I even might be one my self to a certain extend) get so over excited with crossovers.I personally don't like them,they just somehow ruin the individual superhero and his/hers mythology and universe they exist in...for me anyway.I can barely tolerate The Avengers.Good example of ruining two separate mythologies with a crossover is the Aliens vs Predator works well in video game a movie it's just silly...and trashy in a bad way.. It's like mixing food that does not go chocolate and tuna..or something gross and unappetizing ...can't think of anything right now..again for don't get too defensive fellow nerds...

        You know, I didn't think I was, but I looked up the definition of pretentious and I'm afraid it fits me 😉

    With George Lucas going full revisionist with Star Wars, this is a real possibility.
  • Joe Mazur
    I really appreciated Oswalt's nod to Colossus in the rant. Good form.
