We all know what the peculiar sensitivities of Tim Burton can do to a superhero movie. His Batman movies are considered the next best DC adaptation outside of the Christopher Nolan Dark Knight trilogy.
Burton's style is instantly recognizable and thanks to some talented fan artists, we now have some startlingly satisfying tributes.
The latest to capture the Tim Burton magic is Russian-born, Los Angeles-based digital artist Andrew Tarusov. Tarusov previously captured Burtoness in a series that re-imagined famous Disney characters.
“I didn’t expect [the 'Disney Classics in Tim Burton’s style' series would] become so popular across the internet,' Tarusov told MTV News via email. “Everybody liked them so much I decided to make superheroes in that style, too.”
The 10 DC and Marvel characters Tarusov has illustrated all have that Burton quality that balances whimsy and guignol/gothic sensibilities. Most of it is captured through the visions of a magically haunted childhood. All of them are peculiarly good.
Tim Burton's latest movie Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children comes out September 30th. Watch the trailer below:
3. Captain America
4. Iron Man
8. Wonder Woman
9. The Hulk
