Prior to becoming the superhero artist, do you think Marvel-ous Stan Lee was a fan of vintage French wine/liquer posters, such as this classic done by the Italian-born French poster designer, Leonetto Capiello (1875-1942), who was once dubbed “the father of modern advertising”?
With the box office behemoth that is The Avengers, I’m sure movie studios are scouring the globe for the next big superhero franchise. How ’bout this vintage French Superman — with original poster work done by that evil design genius, Constantin Belinsky?
The Amazing Spider-man has already taken over Broadway, so it’ll only be a matter of time before it weaves its web all over the world’s cineplexes. And Magnificent Mel of MoviePosterCollectors.com has pointed out the new teaser’s clever homage to the original 2002 Spider-man one-sheet (left), each poster respectively reflecting on two of NYC’s greatest landmarks, The World Trade Center and Empire State Building.
