I was lucky enough to pick up the Hardcover versions of these books up as part of the boxset here on Amazon.
Each book contains stunning artwork from all the current Marvel individual hero movies.
The boxset is excellent value as you won't find either of the Iron Man books for less than £60 each.
There's also a nice poster included in the slipcase.

I'd also recommend the Avengers artwork book if like me you are someone who likes to look at the gorgeous artwork from these fantastic films.

Excelsior!

 This is a set of four art books from Marvel movies. Each of the books was sold separately, although you'll find that it probably cheapest to buy them together in this bundle. Also, the thick outer slip box is exclusive to this set, as is a folded poster that's included as well. I own the Hardcover Editions, and would recommend that version - although a bit more expensive, it's higher quality and will be easier to control.

These books are big and heavy, and the pages are full of vibrant colors. Photos are mostly high quality. The images used in the books includes conceptual artwork, paintings, and CG models. You will also find plenty of set photos and stills from the movies. There are also marketing/promotional materials, such as movie posters. One of the great things about these books is that there are a lot of alternate designs/art that did not make it into the movie - so you can see how the production design progressed over time.

Every Marvel movie has its own art book and this box consists of four books on Thor (first movie), Cap. America (first movie) and Iron Man (first and second movie). The box also contains an exclusive poster which features these three superheroes.

Each book tells everything about each movie, i.e. cast, plot, locations, costumes, conceptual artwork, paintings, weapons, props, creatures, vehicles, backstage information and so on. All the pages are full of colors and pictures, especially set pictures and screenshots from the movies. There are also sections devoted to promotional stuff, such as posters.

The edition quality is very good, but you have to pay attention to the covers because they aren’t hard and they may crinkle easily.

A product that will really make Marvel fans happy, a must have.

A bit battered around the edges. Pricer than the quality should allow.
