AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Launches A New Poster Campaign To Remind You They’re Still Around
ABC and Marvel have announced a special art initiative called Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven to help promote the remaining six episodes of the show’s first season. EW had the scoop on the first poster in the new limited series and what the future of the new program holds.
The first poster for the Captain America: The Winter Soldier tie-in episode, Turn, Turn, Turn, will have a snazzy poster from highly acclaimed artist Mike Del Mundo featuring Coulson and company trapped in a maze with a rat. The obviously foreshadows the episode and the traitor amongst the group’s rank. As Coulson and his team come face to face with the Clairvoyant, nothing will ever be the same (thanks in large part to the new Captain America movie).
The Art of Level Seven will see a new poster released every week to coincide with a new episode of the show, featuring art from popular comic book artists that have a history with Marvel. The first poster will have a limited 100 print run and will go on sale at MarvelStore.Com at 1am PST tomorrow morning. While show EP Jeff Bell says the show won’t make posters for every single episode in the future, to make it more special, he does say it’s something they would like to continue if a second season was to happen.
Right now a second season has not been confirmed. That is a little odd considering the show only has six episodes left, but the ratings have been rather lackluster as of late. The Captain America lead-in episode (one of the series best yet) tied for the series lowest ratings. All fans can do right now is hope ratings pick up and a second season is commissioned. A big media push like this art imitative certainly won’t hurt when it comes to getting the word out. What do you think?
