Marvel Studios, Feige No Longer Under Perlmutter's Purview
Comic Books, Film
The sum-e art used for the The Wolverine movie posters was something striking and evocative of the Japanese locale that director James Mangold and star Hugh Jackman were going for, but a New York City street artist has done something surprisingly simple that kicks it up a notch.
As you can see in the photo above, street artist Poster Boy NYC has extended the reach of the clawed mutant by adding the character’s near trademark three slash marks to neighboring posters hung next to this one in a subway terminal. Great for Wolverine, not so great for Despicable Me 2 and those other advertisers.
