30 Awesome Minimalist Superhero Posters

5 years ago by  

We here at Screen Rant wanted to celebrate the upcoming summer movie season – particularly the release of Iron Man 2 – by taking an unconventional look at some of the most iconic superheroes in the entertainment industry.

Over the past few months, you may have caught some of our “SR Picks” which highlighted various artists’ interpretations of Quentin Tarantino films, Star Wars and popular television series. Today, we’re stepping out from solely presenting these wonderful posters and taking the initiative to create some of our own.

For the past three nights, I put my need for a good night’s sleep aside in order to present you, the reader, with literally dozens of superhero posters with a unique, minimalist twist.

Some may be more obvious than others, but hopefully you’ll have no problem identifying each and every comic-book icon represented. If, for some reason, you’re not a fan of the typical comic book hero (Capes & Cowls), I’ve also thrown in some of my favorite off-beat superhero characters from television’s past.

I apologize in advance if your favorite superhero is not included, but I’m sure with 30 posters to choose from you’ll have no problem finding something to pique your interest. You can click on the posters below for a larger version of each.

Without further ado… Enjoy!

There you have it! Screen Rant‘s first foray into the minimalist poster universe.

What did you think of our minimalist superhero posters and which was your favorite? Which superhero would you have liked to see that we might have missed? Would you like to see more of this from us, and if so what other subjects would you like to see get the minimalist treatment? Can you still sing the entire Darkwing Duck theme song?

Make sure to comment below. We’d love to hear what you think.

(Special thanks to fellow Screen Rant writers Mike Eisenberg, for planting the minimalist-idea seed, and Paul Young, for getting equally as little sleep as me in order to help me fully realize and develop the idea – as well as designing the wonderful Aquaman, Hawkeye, Punisher and Thing posters.)

  1. Screenrant staff…

    My above comment IS blunt…but read what “anonymous” wrote and tell me you don’t think he deserved SOME kind of appropriately blatant response. Just sayin’… ;)

    • Archaeon,

      Somehow we missed that bizarre comment. Just saw it and deleted it.


      • Thank you, Vic…That is all I really wanted. :)

  2. I agree with Lee.

    Um…dude, really?

    do you not get enough attention at home?

    Anyhoo. Cool, simplistic posters. I like Iron Fist. Very cool.

  3. Can you purchase prints of these fantastic posters?

    • I have the same question… Where can we buy the posters…

  4. Are these available to purchase?

  5. Nightcrawler!!!

  6. Are these available for purchase? They’d make awesome Christmas/birthday presents!

  7. Regarding making these available for purchase – we’ve had enough requests that maybe it’s time to look into doing that…


  8. I’ve added a poll to the post asking which size would be the most preferred if we did decide to sell these.


    • How much are we talking about here? Like $19.99 with like a $5.99 shipping and handling?

      • Probably in the $20-25 range for the largest size (plus shipping). Problem is there are so many of them that I can’t really do a bulk order – if it was just one or two then I could order in quantity and it would cost less per unit.


        • That sounds fairly reasonable. I would $25 for a big poster. So…even though I am bordering on trolling, the Sentry and/or Void should be on this list of posters. :)

  9. I would like to see a Sentry and/or Void minimalist poster…I would buy like 4 of them!!

  10. I’d definately buy some. You’d be able to send them overseas?

  11. I’m redoing my son’s bedroom in the superhero theme and these are great!
    I’d like some of these for Christmas, any chance of that? Keep them cheap and I’ll buy more and tell all my friends that used to buy comics from me when I had a comic book store! :)

    (I’d like you guys to do a Star Wars minimal series. I’m going to show these to my Graphic Arts class!

  12. Quail man?! From Doug?! :D I NEED IT! ahaha And Aquaman? Is there any use for him? :\

  13. I had to sign up just to post this comment. Please, PLEASE make these available for sale, and soon! I am such a HUGE WW fan, and having this most awesome poster would make me oh so happy. No, really.

  14. ra keren nek ra ono wiro sableng

  15. Bª™ªN

  16. LMAO! Gizmo Duck!

  17. Any idea when these will be made available for purchase? Thanks!

  18. Inspiring!

    • And as imitation is the highest form of flattery…

      • Here’s a sample of what you inspired!

      • (I’m trying to change my avatar and show more…)

  19. Okay–I can only show one at a time. Feel free to delete some of these comments. I didn’t know Gravatar would change previous avatars when I re-posted. :}

  20. Where are mermaid man and barnacle boy?

  21. I see a lot of requests to purchase these but they date back 3 months. Any movement there? I’d be willing to purchase the vector files and print my own. Thoughts?

  22. so you downloaded illustrator, traced some logos/costumes, cropped the image down & called them minimalist posters. well done
