The Superhero Media Crossover Project
by Butcher Billy
Just how thin is the line that separate movies from comics? Modern from classic? Pixels from ink?
It’s easy to forget how much the comic stylings of the 60’s and 70’s have inspired modern films and just how timeless those two-dimensional, spandex-clad superheroes can be. This series replaces live action with the lines they were born from, interlacing cinematography with storyboard.
A true homage to Kirby, Ditko, Romita Sr. and all the other artists that kept inspiring and being a reference to the modern media. And all of us.
you’ve nailed it again
IM SHITTING MYSELF WITH LAUGHTER
I’m laughing way too loud for this time of night.
OH MY JOHANNES BRAHMS
Fun fact: Dustin Hoffman and Bob Hoskins decided secretly that they’d play Hook and Smee as a gay couple. When Spielberg, the director, found out, he was furious.
I just think it’s hilarious.
The movie veteran tells Playboy magazine, “Bob Hoskins and I were rehearsing and suddenly we looked at each other and realised it at the same time. We said, ‘These guys are gay….’ and it was fun.
“Suddenly we rehearsed it that way: ‘Get over here, Smee. Give me a foot massage.’
“We went to Spielberg… and he said, ‘This is a kids’ movie.’” - Source
I find it very interesting that Spielberg finds a playful on screen homosexual couple more harmful towards children than a scene about killing yourself.
