Slick 'Captain America 2' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Concept Art
Today, the sweet Blu-Ray box set for Phase One of Marvel's cinematic universe was unleashed, and while there's a short video preview going around online, it seems to be just a taste of the full video and features only Iron Man 3 footage that we've seen before. We're hoping there's some stuff from Thor: The Dark World on the way, but in the meantime, how about some concept art for the releases that are further down the road? Geek Zenith (via Latino Review) got ahold of alleged concept art from Captain America: The Winter Solider and Guardians of the Galaxy. The style certainly fits with Marvel's work. Look below!
Here's the concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier:
Now, there's a slight chance that this concept art could be fake, especially since Geek Zenith isn't usually at the forefront of exclusives like this, but it does look pretty official. The characters in the Guardians of the Galaxy bar scene (clearly reminiscent of the Mos Eisley cantina in Star Wars) certainly look very similar to the initial piece of concept art released at Comic-Con last year (though that wouldn't be hard to replicate for a good artist). Those other cosmic pieces including the seemingly alien world and giant ship are also from the forthcoming cosmic superhero ensemble, and it looks pretty damn epic.
Meanwhile, that Captain America: The Winter Soldier art is pretty bad ass and features a great rendering of Chris Evans fighting James "Bucky" Barnes as the titular villain, though it looks more like Tom Hiddleston as Loki and less like Sebastian Stan. The action looks like it's taking place in the middle of traffic with that car skidding in the background. Maybe Steve Rogers was riding his motorcycle and ends up getting attacked by Bucky. We're not sure. This art could just as easily turn out to be fake, but either way, it's some fine work and gets us excited. Hopefully we hear more about Phase Two very soon. Cool stuff?
