I know, I know you hate me for the pun. But there’s a special joy in a poorly written joke. There’s also a special joy in a wonderfully drawn piece of art, especially when that art is of some of our favorite characters to grace the big screen in recent times. Here’s six incredible renditions of Marvel characters who we’ve seen on the big or little screen recently.
Deadpool by Thomas Moor
The highest grossing R-rated movie to come out since Matrix: Reloaded, Deadpool was a beautiful and irreverent take on Marvel’s formula. And they did it on a budget! Badass.
Moor’s piece pays service to the new film, showing the unicorn that Deadpool uses to…well. We won’t spoil it here.
And now for something completely different.
Vision Redesign by Asher Ben Alpay
In probably the best transition in Art Lords history, we move from the merc with a mouth to the robo-Jesus of the MCU. Vision is so over-the-top goody-goody two shoes that we kind of have to assume that he’s going to die in a heroic sacrifice sooner or later. Alpay’s redesign is pretty dope, calling back to the original colors a bit more while reminding us of the type of detail-work you’d see in the Mass Effect series.
Agent Coulson by Chema Mansilla
I wish the show was as good as this piece is.
Okay, this is kind of cheating since the new X-men movie isn’t exactly out yet, but hey Cornelius Jr’s portrait of him is so good you’ll forgive us right?
For those unfamiliar, Apocalypse is one of the big baddies in the Marvel universe, especially in X-men stories. He’s considered to be one of, if not the, first mutants on Earth.
Daredevil by Lionel Cornelius Jr
Rocking a twofer, Cornelius Jr’s piece on the star of Netflix giant Daredevil is fantastic. It is obviously not a rendition based on Daredevil actor Charlie Cox, but calls back to the Matt Murdock of the comics; strong jawed and itching for a fight. Season 2, which features the god damn PUNISHER and Elektra, is probably going to be just as badass as the first season was.
Doom by Johnny Morrow
It’s too bad Fan4stick was so bad, shots of Dr. Doom like the one above by Johnny Morrow remind us just how scary Dr. Doom could be in a live action depiction. Seriously though, why the hell is Fan4stick’s Doom a weird, naked husk from Mass Effect? WHY?
Lastly, please can we have a spider-gwen movie?
Spider Gwen by Cody Schroder
Seriously though, Spidergwen would be an incredible movie. Sure baby-spidey’s already in upcoming Marvel movies. But a spin-off, a time-travel piece? Anything? That’d be incredible.
