Paul Newman as Dr. Manhattan? Clint Eastwood as Wolverine? A 60s-era exploitation version of Avatar? YES PLEASE!
These are just a few of the creations that graphic artist Sean Hartter has put together in a series called Alternate Universe Movie Posters. There’s a heavy emphasis on superhero flicks, such as Punisher (starring Jack Palance) and Daredevil (with William Shatner). Not all of them put current films in the past; one poster re-imagines Clockwork Orange with Angelina Jolie as Alex… and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. I’m actually surprised that project isn’t already in production. The cast lists are just about as clever as the posters themselves.
Check out the full set of Hartter’s work… some are really hilarious.
