This poster was created for Shortlist's alternative movie poster gallery. I was stuck at first on just what to do; there were already SO many Captain America 2 posters out there. I wanted to make something different.
Cap will always be vintage to me, shiny new uniform or not. I was fascinated by the idea of DC under attack, the skyline polluted with snow... or is it ash from burning wreckage? The shield stands at the ready with Falcon as backup. Vintage type and distressing give the poster a weathered appearance, the enduring reds and blues adding a hint of hope. The larger 'flakes' are constructed of hammers and sickles, a throwback to the comic book days of The Winter Soldier.
