As it was with The Avengers, it shall be with Iron Man 3. MONDO has been commissioned for two exclusive prints (plus a variant) for Iron Man 3. Check out the official press release below. Best of luck getting one of these incredible posters. If you do luck out, treasure it. Please don’t be a tool bag and resell it on eBay seconds after you get one. I have three MONDOS and each is cherished. Hell, one even hangs in my dining room.
Remember, the IMAX 12:01 poster is a MONDO as well. See the details here for that exclusive.
Official press release: Mondo, the collectible art boutique arm of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, proudly announces the release of 2 posters honoring Marvel's IRON MAN 3, in theaters May 3rd.
"We decided to approach the Iron Man 3 job from two different directions," said Mitch Putnum, Mondo Creative Director. "First, we wanted a sleek movie poster, and really, when it's anything futuristic or robot-related, Martin Ansin is the first person that comes to our minds. His style just really works with anything 'modern.' Mondo CEO Justin Ishmael also presented an idea about doing an armory poster featuring all of the different suits, and since they're so incredibly versatile, we put Toronto's Phantom City Creative on the job. As is always the case when working with both of these artists, we couldn't be happier with the final product."
The two Mondo artists each had their own inspiration behind their take on Tony Stark's Super Hero alter ego.
"It's Iron Man comics that led me into drawing when I was a little kid," said Martin Ansin. "All it took for me to get hooked was an oversized shellhead collection by Tuska in black and white, magic markers, and a week sick in bed. Doing this poster has been amazing luck - and a tough job, with that 5 year old fan keeping tabs on it."
"To me, Tony Stark's real super power is his intelligence and ingenuity," said Justin Erickson of Phantom City Creative. "With the Iron Man 3 armory poster, I wanted to showcase that by featuring a schematic chart of all the Iron Man suits with Stark himself front and center."
Additional details on both posters are below. Each print will be available for purchase online on Friday, May 3 at MondoTees.com. Follow @MondoNews for exact sale times.
