A new Justice League poster was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con 2017 and fans immediately noticed that the image closely resembled the artwork for the Justice comic book series by Alex Ross. Now, photographer Clay Enos has confirmed that Ross’ artwork was the inspiration for the latest poster in a post on Vero.
Clay Enos explained how Alex Ross artwork inspired him when taking photographs of the cast for the Justice League poster. Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
“I first saw this painting as part of the Ayman Hariri’s Impossible Collection and it inspired me to shoot our gang in the same style. I used this exact image as my reference for what became the latest JL poster. I simply had the idea and took the initiative to pay homage to Alex Ross by making a few quick portraits in that distinctive light. I’m so glad the WB marketing team ran with them. I love it!”
