The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: World Cup 2014
As the world counts down to the biggest sporting event in history, we at Digitally Inspired Media cannot be far behind in paying tribute to the game's true legends. While Hollywood incessantly churns out scores of reel-life heroes every year, the real-life heroes are the ones who are about to go to battle in the world's football capital, Brazil. For those 90 minutes, these godly athletes will give every inch of blood, sweat and tears to win the most coveted award of them all and make their nation proud.
 
As part of our tribute to these heroes, we have created a series of exclusive posters for the star contenders of the World Cup, inspired the titles of blockbuster films that justify the dedicated traits of each player better than the respective movies itself. To create these posters, we incorporated a cutting-edge crystal design, symbolizing the presence of a singular, strong inner core with an outer surface that is capable of transcending boundaries and achieve the impossible, much like our heroes who give everything they have for the spirit of the most beautiful game ever played.
 
So, there you go. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
