Do you have a spare wall that needs decorating? Looking for a fantastic picture to show off your nerdy love of comic book movies?

If so, Marvel might have just released the perfect Avengers: Infinity War poster for you at San Diego Comic-Con, although if you're hoping to display it in style, you're going to need a pretty big wall. Marvel might be pretty cagey about sharing the official footage that was shown off at SDCC with a wider audience, but that doesn't mean we can't get a good look at what's to come. Here's the full image with nearly everybody on it, created by Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development Ryan Meinerding:

Perhaps the most striking element of this poster is the bearded Captain America and platinum blonde Black Widow, both of whom are, it can be assumed, in hiding under assumed names following the events of Captain America: Civil War. Presumably Falcon isn't bothering with a disguise because nobody knows who he is - he's never made inspirational videos about patience and bullying for US high schools, nor did he have to go on television to explain why all of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s documents have been leaked on the internet.

It's also hard to miss the fact that Vision and Scarlet Witch are snuggling behind Cap. Clearly Vision's forgiven Wanda for that time she flattened him Wile E Coyote style. And note the teenage Groot in the top left corner. And sadly, note that Nick Fury is nowhere to be found, backing up Samuel L. Jackson's comments that he doesn't know if he'll appear or not.
 


What's really exciting about this giant poster, though, is that it doesn't overdo things. Pretty much every major Marvel hero is represented on here, but some are more prominent than others. Nobody's going to see this movie for Hawkeye, so it's very fitting that he's hidden away in a tiny little spot on the poster. You could almost say that the size of the characters on here represent how excited fans are to see them in the movie.


The original, somewhat less official poster that Robert Downey Jr. posted last year simply listed the name of every major actor in the movie, each displayed in an equal size. This new arrangement, focusing more on some characters and less on others, hopefully represents the focus of the movie - in order to balance the thirty or more heroes and villain that will appear in the movie, some are going to, of necessity, bask in a little more limelight than others.

We don't need to see Peter Parker recording intergalactic vlogs and worrying over editing decisions or what Ned Leeds will think - it's more important for the Wall Crawler to take a back seat to the more pressing stories, like whether Steve Rogers and Tony Stark are going to kiss and make up, or whether Thanos is going to succeed in his attempts to use the Infinity Gauntlet to very literally court Death.



While we await a future date when Marvel sees fit to finally share the SDCC footage on the internet for all to see, at least we have this swell poster. If you whip your head from one side of it to the other, really fast, it almost looks like the characters are moving. Who needs an official trailer?
