An AI Art Generator Just Remade The Avengers… Like Wes Anderson

The Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony, have made some of Marvel’s most successful films, including the Avengers doubleheader that closed out the Infinity Stone saga. But what if those movies were made in 1980 and were directed by indie auteur Wes Anderson? And yes…?

The Russo brothers dropped the idea on Midjourney and the AI ​​art generator showed off some amazing images. At first glance, the results, which were published in the UCM Twitter (opens in a new tab), they’re actually kind of funny, we have Captain America from the 1940s, a version of Thanos who seems more concerned with office work than galactic mayhem and an Ant-Man from the Cold War era. Everything looks funny and strange, but some details are a bit scary.

Why, for example, can the Midjourney AI art generator create natural, realistic hands for robotic Iron Man but fail to paint humans with accurate fingers? Spaghetti looks more natural. Scroll down for the best images of the Russo-Brothers-Wes-Anderson-Avengers-Midjourney combination.

This representation of Guardians of the Galaxy features lots of fur and multiple raccoons. But why does Rocket Raccoon have human eyes? And why are they in the back of an ’80s Toyota LiteAce? Is that Kevin Bacon as Peter Quill? So. A lots of. Questions.

A Cold War-era Ant-Man is a beautiful thing, but we’re also getting some big Spaceballs vibes from that oversized helmet.

Who wants to see an alternative Avengers movie where the team sits down to talk about fatherhood? Why does ham look more realistic than Thor?

Iron Man’s rendering looks great in an ’80s tech setting. There’s a real sense of place to this piece, but also, weirdly, why is Midjourney able to create perfect robotic hands but have trouble with human fingers?

All jokes about Ai’s art aside, Black Panther’s portrayal is very good. It feels like a comic costume from the Golden Age of the 1940s. Perhaps Marvel should consider some Black Panther prequels?
