New Justice League character posters get up close with each hero

Some just-released posters from Justice League continue to capture a classic look.

Following the debut of a group poster at San Diego Comic-Con last month that was clearly meant to channel the distinctive artwork of the great Alex Ross, Warner Bros. Pictures has now unveiled a string of individual character posters that break up the group into stand-alone images.

These aren't paintings, however, but enhanced portraits taken by photographer Clay Enos. He's previously said that his inspiration for the images was the cover portrait of the Silver Age Justice League from the 2005 comic book series Justice, which was written by Ross and Jim Kreuger and drawn by Ross and Doug Braithwaite. Take a look:

Enos told CBR, "I simply had the idea and took the initiative to pay homage to Alex Ross by making a few quick portraits in that distinctive light. I’m so glad the WB marketing team ran with them. I love it!”

The posters certainly play up the iconic, almost mythological nature of Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg, and we wonder if Enos has also done yet-to-be-revealed posters for Superman and Green Lantern as well. Hopefully the film turns out as well as the pictures.

Justice League is out Nov. 17. Are you digging these images?
