Artist Alexander Lozano did a bunch of promotional art for Captain America: Civil War, but this one, the one that was never used, is possibly the best. Mainly because it focuses on only the movie’s two main characters and the detail in the damage is so dead on.
We’ve already filled you in on everything you ever wanted to know about the making of Finding Dory. Now get a look at some lovely concept art—we’re already in love with Hank the cranky octopus!—for Andrew Stanton’s Finding Nemo sequel, which will be in theaters June 17.
The sequel to Kingsman got a subtitle this weekend, the wonderfully nonsense-sounding The Golden Circle. But we also found out just enough about the plot to be convinced that it’s going to be as out there as the original.
Concept artist Victor Martinez has posted art from Batman v Superman, which honestly looks better than a lot that was in the actual movie. Like that graffiti in the picture above, which I honestly love.
Every year, the Spectrum Awards pick the most amazing art in science fiction and fantasy, from a number of categories including book covers, advertising, and concept art. This year’s nominees are absolutely stunning. Here are some of our absolute favorites.
Negasonic Teenage Warhead was put in Deadpool basically by virtue of a) being a character that wasn’t vital to the X-Men movies and b) having a really cool name. So it’s no surprise that she could have looked like pretty much anything.
There were a number of incredible moments in Game of Thrones season five, including that massive Wildling/White Walkers fight. But the scene where Drogon flies into the arena in Meereen was incredible, especially after years of imagining it. And now you can see storyboards from it!
The final act of Deadpool may have left out a ton of superhero stuff that proved too expensive—but there was one ginormous Marvel Universe easter egg that made it in. And we’ve got some concept art for it, exclusively at io9. Spoilers ahead, maybe?
For her fall thesis at MICU, Molly Stanard brought us Tri Phi, a “sorority for collegiate monster girls.” Everything in her series is happening at the same time on a single Friday, confirming that Phi Phi Phi is the best sorority around.
We love some fantastic concept art, and one artist who we came across recently is Kim Petersen, who’s put together some jaw-dropping images that transport us to some fantastic worlds.
In Marvel’s comics, when he’s not flinging spells, Stephen Strange hangs out at 177A Bleecker Street, Greenwich Village, New York—his magical “Sanctum Sanctorum,” the nexus of Strange’s supernatural practices. It’s no surprise that it’s going to appear in the Doctor Strange movie though, and it’s looking good.
In addition to being the combination space opera/political thriller we’ve been waiting ages for, The Expanse is also home to some gorgeous spaceship and space station porn. And now that we’ve got a look at some of the concept art for the show, we’re awed all over again.
Syfy’s ambitious miniseries based on Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End served up some beautiful spaceship visuals. Including the alien mothership, which looks striking and angelic. Concept artist Ben Mauro shared with us some of his beautiful Childhood’s End spaceship designs.
It’s almost impossible to think of Back to the Future and not instantly conjure thoughts of Drew Struzan’s iconic poster of Marty McFly stepping out of the Delorean. But we almost had a poster where the amazing time-traveling car wasn’t the star. Hell, it was barely even on the poster.
What do you think is happening in this brand new piece of Star Wars fan art? Will that X-wing ever fly again? Will that R2-unit find a friend? This is the work of Emmanuel Shiu (Game of Thrones, Star Trek), whose work we’ve featured before, and we’re stoked to premiere this picture exclusively at io9.
While Ben Affleck’s Batman may be letting Wayne Manor fall into disrepair, the Batcave remains a high-tech and up-to-date haven, as you can see from the concept art dropped by Entertainment Weekly.
Starwars.com has been running an ongoing feature series about the art of the beloved concept artist Ralph McQuarrie, recounting the history behind some of the artist’s lesser known or exceedingly rare pieces of art—including a spectacular look at one of McQuarrie’s rarest-ever paintings.
Now that The Force Awakens has hit theaters, Lucasfilm has started slowly revealing a treasure trove of concept art for the film, giving us a look at how The Force Awakens evolved visually over the course of its production. Most of the beautiful work has been collected in The Art of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but…
Syfy’s adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End wrapped up earlier this week, and ended with a stunning glimpse of an alien planet. We’re excited to premiere some concept art by Emmanuel Shiu illuminates that insane vista, exclusively at io9.
