After the release yesterday of official Capitol portraits of Peeta Mellark (HERE), Gale Hawthorne (HERE) and Finnick Odair (HERE) we were teased with the release today of the official Capitol portrait of “his emminence”, the man who is “adorned by all” … which, of course, meant the all-powerful President Coriolanus Snow (wickedly played by Donald Sutherland). Just moments ago, President Snow‘s portrait was released and as you can see below, it’s a quite regal photo. Thus far, we’ve seen portraits of a bunch of good guys — including our hero Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) — but today’s portrait features the biggest bad in the Hunger Games saga. Check out President Snow‘s photo below.
I’ve noticed that all of the Panem Tributes are looking at the camera in their Capitol portraits, the characters who are NOT competing in the Hunger Games are looking straight ahead, away from the camera … you can see this in Effie Trinket, Caesar Flickerman, Cinna and of course President Snow‘s portraits. Haymitch Abernathy is also looking away from camera and even tho he is a former tribute who has competed in the games, he is not competing in the Hunger Games in Catching Fire. As far as I can tell, there are no teases for any upcoming photos so … this might be the last official Capitol portrait that we get. Personally, I think they should’ve ended the run with Katniss‘s photo because it is truly the most spectacular of them all. I suspect we’ll get more promo photos at some point but this photo of President Snow might be the last for a while … and what a way to end, eh?
