Paolo Rivera Tackles ‘SHYDRA’ In New Episode Poster For AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.


HYDRAOne week ago today, ABC and Marvel announced a new poster campaign for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. called The Art of Level Seven. Every episode the remainder of this season would get the poster treatment for a famous comic book artist in an effort to promote the show and give fans a more cinematic experience (original story here). The first poster featured a complex maze to go along with the twists and turns of Turn, Turn, Turn, and today the second poster in the series has debuted.

The poster for this week’s episode, Providence, is provided by Eisner-winning artist Paolo Rivera. While the first poster was an action-packed spectacle, this one is more emotional as we see Coulson‘s team divided and out in the cold. Show EP Jeff Bell talked about Rivera‘s poster and how it shows off the Shydra logo:

This is what he does blatantly — he takes these character’s and finds these moments, and finds a composition that puts it together, as he did with The Winter Soldier art. I think it’s more of an emotional piece than some sort of an illustrative metaphor. Some of the others will have more of a metaphor at the center. What I love about this one is that at first glance, it’s, “oh look, there’s our team.” But with what we know about episode 17 now, you take a closer look and the Hydra logo has the S.H.I.E.L.D. eagle in the middle of it, which we call “Shydra” — which I think is brilliant. And just the fact that Raina and Ward are in Coulson, and how the team is split behind Coulson…I even love the steam, the icy breath.

With five episodes left, there’s still time to tune in and see how Captain America: The Winter Soldier has shaken things up. What do you think about Rivera‘s latest Marvel poster?
