An Undated (probably late 1940s, from the first Belgian release) Original Vintage Theatrical Folded Belgian Movie Poster (measures 14 1/4" x 20 1/4") (Learn More)

Adventures of Captain Marvel, the 1941 John English & William Witney comic book superhero fantasy serial ("A Republic Serial in 12 Chapters"; "Based on the character in WHIZ COMICS Magazine" by C.C. Beck; about the boy who becomes a superhero when he says "Shazam" and he fights a mysterious masked villain called "The Scorpion") starring Tom Tyler (in the title role as Captain Marvel), Frank Coghlan Jr. (as Billy Batson, Captain Marvel's youthful alter ego), Louise Currie, William 'Billy' Benedict, Robert Strange, Kenne Duncan, Stanley Price, and John Davidson. Note that Republic Pictures had tried to make a deal with DC Comics to make serials of Superman and Batman in 1940, but they could not agree on a deal, and in fact a lawsuit resulted. So instead they made a deal with Whiz Comics and made this serial in 1941, and the serial "Spy Smasher" in 1942 (and DC Comics signed with Columbia Pictures in 1943, and made their Batman and Superman serials there!). So this was the very first of the many "live action" movies based on the costumed super heroes, and, likely because it was released at the start of America's involvement in World War II, and there were paper drives over the next few years, original 1941 movie paper on this title is EXTREMELY rare!

Artist: Wik
Important Added Info: Note that this poster has been trimmed and it now measures 14 1/4" x 20 1/4". Also note that this poster was folded at one time but has been laying flat for a long time and will be sent rolled in a tube.

Condition: good to very good. The poster originally had a blank top that was neatly trimmed off (this is commonly done with Belgian posters, similar to how the blank top is trimmed off of U.S. window cards). There are remnants of a snipe across the top and there are a few small tape repairs on the back around the edges of the poster.
