As revealed recently at New York Comic Con, a significant portion of the upcoming video game Marvel's Avengers from developer Crystal Dynamics and publisher Square Enix will focus on the journey of Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel) as she seeks to reassemble the Avengers in the wake of the game's A-Day disaster. As such, it makes sense that the character would feature in the center of a full-on official poster.
The poster, which debuted around the same time as the official introduction of Kamala Khan in the game at NYCC, was recently shared online by Marvel Games VP and Creative Director Bill Rosemann. As Rosemann points out, the poster isn't just showing off Khan in action; it's telling a story about her growth. If you look closely at the reflection under her feet, a familiar costume shines through.
Kudos to Team @CrystalDynamics for all the environmental storytelling in this #KamalaKhan poster. From the oppressive AIM elements to the inspiring #MsMarvel reflection, I’m ready for you to #EmbraceYourPowers when you join her journey! @MarvelGames @PlayAvengers #PlayAvengers pic.twitter.com/wVNAH8lbj8— Bill Rosemann (@BillRosemann) October 10, 2019
