(Sigourney Weaver as Bruce Wayne, Winona Ryder as Dick Grayson, Geena Davis as The Joker and Gillian Anderson as Lex Luthor)
Today marks the first day of our week long #DCBend feature! Each day here at Rooftop we’ll be highlighting the work of a single artist’s work for the #DCBend project. #DCBend was started by Ming Doyle, using rule 63 (“For any given male character, there is a female version of that character.”) the project not only re-imagines the hero with a gender swap, but also fan-casts said hero as a Hollywood actor.
First up to bat is the originator herself, Ming Doyle. Ming’s first design, Sigourney Weaver as Bruce Wayne, really set a precedent for how fun this project would end up being creatively. Her dark, sketchy tone works well with his mostly Bat-verse compositions, and separates her work in a recognizable way. In the end her designs turned out captivating, exciting and all around coherent. I personally thank her for great work that’s come from the project, and can’t wait to highlight more work tomorrow! –Patrick
