12 superhero minimalist posters

Superhero throwback film "The Avengers" is a mega-hit, according to box office ticket sales. The film, which opened earlier this month, made $200.3 million in its opening weekend, a record-breaking figure. "Avengers" was five years in the making, although its release is perfectly timed with this summer's other impending super hero releases, such as "The Dark Knight", and is right in line with the current popularity of the super hero genre overall. Featuring a team of Marvel Comic heroes who have already had their individual big screen debuts, like Thor, Iron Man and The Hulk, "The Avengers" opening weekend had movie theaters quickly selling out every seat in the house. Hollywood.com analyst Paul Dergarabedian said, "'The Avengers' kicks off what looks to me to be the summer box-office equivalent of the 100-year flood. This is perhaps the most perfect summer lineup in box-office history." Inspired by the film, comic book fan and art student Calvin Lin has exploded onto the superhero scene through amateur artist website DeviantART with a series of posters featuring a minimalist-style depiction of a number of comic book characters like Superman, The Flash, The Green Lantern, Black Widow and more. His latest work features posters with characters from "The Avengers," minimalist-style. Related:

    I think Alicia meant elusive rather than illusive.
