Comic book fans often wonder what would have happened or what could have been if someone else was at the helm of the franchise. This artist have given us a glimpse if Tim Burton decided to direct the franchise.
Tim Burton is one the most well known as a director, but only a few know that he is an extremely talented artist as well. During the early years of his career where he was working as an animator for Disney. As a matter of fact, Burton's quirky and macabre technique has a separate fanbase of its own and many people have taken inspiration from his art. Case in point, a Russian artist named Andrew Tarusov, who is an animator by profession, also working as an animator with Disney has been inspired by Burton's work and has produced quite a few images that show our favorite superheroes in a dark, melancholic twist that you can only find in Burton's movies. One of them is Batman of course since Burton himself directed 1989’s 'Batman' and 1992’s 'Batman Returns'. Hence the artist's impression of young Batman brooding over the death of his parents looks straight out of a Tim Burton movie. Check out the amazing artwork below.
