Awards season is nearly upon us and after winning three Oscars last year, Marvel Studios fans are hoping Avengers: Endgame was a big enough movie to bring home more awards. To celebrate Disney officially launching the "For Your Consideration" campaign for the mega-blockbuster, fan art master BossLogic took the opportunity to make his own version of a campaign poster. Using the classic Oscar award styling, the artist turn Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man into an Academy Award in a sleek new fan poster.

After initially leaving RDJ off the "For Your Consideration" list, Disney redid their posters to include the Iron Man star and a dozen of other actors from Endgame. When we spoke with Endgame producer Trinh Tran last month, she was fully supportive of Downey getting a stab at an Academy Award as with the remainder of the cast.
"I absolutely love Robert as Tony Stark and I think this is the end of his character arc," she said. "So I'm always striving to say he deserves to be acknowledged playing this character for the last decade. But I feel he's humble about it as well because this is an ensemble piece and there are a lot of characters and a lot of talents that were involved in making this. And rightfully so. To say that is... is it just a Tony Stark movie? No, it's about all of our 64 characters that got involved to create this."
Avengers: Endgame is now available wherever movies are sold and will be available to stream on Disney+ when it launches November 12th.
