Film noir, a staple of American cinema, has seen the sun set on its hay day at the box office. These days it’s all about big budget action flicks and super heroes… lots of super heroes. So what would it look like if some of our favorite power prone characters got reworked into the classic noir feel? This is the question that mixed media artist Marko Manev has sought out to answer.
Marko has created a graphic series entitled ‘Noir’ and drains some of the color out of our super hero movies in exchange for a more shadowy texture. The series focuses on super hero characters, but re-imagines other popular films as well. See if you can guess them all.
