Disney has released two new posters for Big Hero 6, the film based on the Marvel Comics series of the same name. It’s Disney’s first animated Marvel adaptation. Both posters show the big robot Baymax, and really highlight his nature as a cute and probably very powerful robot. He looks a bit like the offspring of Wall-E‘s Eve and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man — at least when he’s out of his armor. When he’s armored up, Baymax looks more like a super-intimidating samurai.
