The Royal Mutanenbaums: If Wes Anderson Made an X-Men Movie

By  · Published on March 4th, 2015

We’ve all thought about it. Dreamed about it. What if Wes Anderson were hired to direct an X-Men movie?

Filmmaker Patrick Willems has deftly answered that question. Naturally, it involves stylish yellow costumes, unaffected affectations and mutant cub scouts running in slow motion while throwback acoustic jams drone in the background.

You can watch how they made the video here, and Willems has also envisioned other notable directors taking on comic book material – Tommy Wiseau and Batman, Ingmar Bergman and The Flash and more.
