It turns out that even in defeat, Marvel is definitely no sore loser. In today’s viral Twitter post, Marvel boss Kevin Feige posted an illustration made by world-famous artist, and member of his studio’s Visual Development Team, Andy Park, of Chris Pratt’s Jurassic World character riding atop a T-Rex, and overlooking the Avengers team.
The illustration was made in reference to?Colin Trevorrow?s Jurassic Park sequel, outgrossing 2012’s The Avengers in the opening weekend by almost a million dollars.?It was Marvel’s own special way of recognizing Pratt’s character, Owen (and his T-rex), as the new Box Office King.
This is not the first time that rival productions recognised and congratulated competition for a box office hit. In 1977, director Steven Spielberg congratulated George Lucas when the latter’s Star Wars, outgrossed Jaws in domestic video rental charts.
