An AI art generator just remade The Avengers… as Wes Anderson

The Russo Brothers, Joe and Anthony, have made some of Marvel's most successful movies, including The Avengers double-header that wrapped up the Infinity Stone saga. But what if those movies were made in 1980 and directed by indie auteur Wes Anderson? What If…?

The Russo Brothers dropped the idea into Midjourney and the AI art-generator popped out some startling images. At first glance the results, which were posted on the MCU Twitter, are actually kind of fun, we get 1940s era Captain America, a version of Thanos who seems more concerned with office work than galactic chaos and a Cold War era Ant-Man. It all looks fun and weird, but some details are a little terrifying.
