The creator of the highly popular series Bleach, Tite Kubo designed a surprising poster which no one ever saw coming. This collaboration has taken over the internet since its release. Marvel Studios has partnered with Tite Kubo to showcase a new illustration of one of Bleach’s most infamous antagonists.
What is the Illustration of Tite Kubo?
Kubo’s new illustration was revealed on Marvel’s Japanese Twitter account. The poster shows Tom Hiddleston as Loki standing alongside Aizen. Both of them have the same expression on their faces and also are seen to be in the same pose.
The caption reads, “The God of Betrayal and the Shinigami of Betrayal stand side by side!” It makes sense cause both the characters are infamous for being betrayers, Loki constantly deceiving his brother Thor, while Aizen is well known for being another trickster.
Well, it seems, this design was created by Tite Kubo to help with the promotion of the release of the Loki Disney+ series in Japan. And it pretty much has worked oh-so-well!
