Newly released art ties into Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode 16. Designed by acclaimed artist Mike Del Mundo (Elektra, X-Men Legacy)
Each week for the 6 remaining episodes of the season, limited edition high quality prints of special tie-in artwork will be released for sale at MarvelStore.com. Each poster will be limited to just 100 copies and will be released the Thursday before the new episode airs.
“Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: The Art of Level Seven.” is a new initiative that features top artists from around the world and each will tease viewers with clues about the upcoming episode.
EW spoke with executive producer Jeff Bell about the project and released an image of the first poster (right). In Tuesdays episode Coulson and Skye discover the Clairvoyant is not someone with pyschic abilities but rather someone with access to high security S.H.I.E.L.D. files. The first artwork, designed by acclaimed artist Mike Del Mundo (Elektra, X-Men Legacy) shows us a maze of S.H.I.E.L.D. with a rat inside.
Here’s what Jeff Bell had to say (read the full interview at EW.
What’s exciting for us is that this poster goes on sale tomorrow morning [ed. note: each poster in this series will be made available to order as a limited edition high quality print, limited to 100 copies.] It goes on the MarvelStore.com at 1am PST. And we want to tease out a little bit that’s coming. For fans who saw “End of the Beginning,” we’ve been looking for The Clairvoyant, and the team came to some realizations and conclusions where we think it’s is a high level S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, and so the idea of S.H.I.E.L.D. being a maze and that there’s a rat in the maze and no one trusting anyone…I thought Mike did a great job of capturing that. I think if you saw 16, the stakes really went up a lot, and I think when you come back nexy week for 17, that will only continue to be more true. And we feel like if you look at a 22 episode season as a movie, we’re in the 3rd act of the movie. And from here on, its just full on action and urgency and momentum, and sometimes it takes awhile to set everything up, but we think we’re going to bring all those dominoes together really nicely for here through 22.
