Marvellous Marvel Movie Posters
To celebrate the release of Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 we taking a look back at some of the past Marvel movies which have been given the LEGO® treatment. The LEGO Super Heroes range has become immensely popular over the last few years, fuelled in part thanks to continued success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its connected array of movies and TV shows. With each new instalment in the MCU, its often joined by a collection LEGO playsets and as an added treat the movies theatrical table poster gets recreated using the LEGO Minifigures featured in the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. If you want to Build Something Super yourself check out the current range of LEGO Marvel Super Hero sets available now.
Avengers Assemble (2012)
One of the first Marvel movies to get the LEGO treatment was Avengers Assemble, a movie many thought would be impossible. It brought together some of Marvel’s biggest heroes, who had previously starred in their own standalone outings. There have been a number of LEGO sets which feature the Avengers but none based directly on the film.
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Iron Man has featured quite heavily in both the MCU and LEGO sets. Although a number of Marvel Super Heroes sets were released alongside the film in 2013 and featured the films branding, sets didn’t quite match up with the events that occurred in the Iron Man 3.
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
The second outing for Thor didn’t get any connected LEGO sets, but Thor, Loki and the gang did appear as a special DLC pack for the hit LEGO Game, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. The Asgard Character Pack added digital Minifigures of Thor, Odin, Hogun, Fandral, Volstagg, Sif, Kurse, Malekith and Jane Foster.
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Just like the Avengers, no-one knew if the little known Guardians of the Galaxy characters would appeal to the masses. But the movies, perfect mix of characters, humour and music resulted in a surprisingly awesome movie. One which was also supported by a trio of LEGO playsets based directly from the movie. They would also see Chris Pratt appear in his second LEGO form, after The LEGO Movies Emmet.
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Although the Avengers Assemble didn’t get sets directly based on the movies action, for Age of Ultron it was a different story. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes sets released in 2015 were based directly on the on screen action. The second LEGO Marvel videogame, LEGO Marvel Avengers also drew its inspiration from the some of the more recent MCU movies and TV shows, including Spider-Man’s inclusion in the fully connected universe created by Marvel Studios and Disney.
Ant-Man would be another surprise hit for Marvel, after being in development for many years, when it finally hi the big screen it was joined by a single LEGO set, but was a set that was. It included a brick-built version of Anthony the Ant which scaled nicely with Minifigures and the scaled up brick-built LEGO bricks.
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Civil War would pit Marvel’s biggest heroes against one another. Although there were sets based on the movie, its accompanying poster didn’t exactly match up to the theatrical poster. But as you can see it isn’t far off and the LEGO poster is still quite cool.
Doctor Strange (2016)
Finally as the Marvel Cinematic Universe moved into more cosmic realms, last years Doctor Strange would follow the same route as Ant-Man by only being supported by a single LEGO set. Doctor Strange would also be apart of the LEGO Games world via a DLC story pack.
