Whenever tourists go to Madame Tussauds, they are usually able to tell the difference between the wax statues and the real thing (the occasional viral video aside, of course). If artist Per Haagensen had a museum, you would think that Batman or Catwoman were staring right back at you. Using a combination of digital sculpting and Photoshop, Haagensen has created photorealistic 3D model that could have been used as stand-ins for the genuine articles.
Here is Anne Hathaway as Catwoman. Well, you would have thought it was Anne Hathaway with how realistic this model is. Hard to believe, but the light is bouncing off simulated clay, not skin.
If I didn’t know any better, it looks like Christan Bale is back to take his spot in Batman v Superman.
You can have your 18 versions of the Batmobile; the Batpod is my favorite part of Batman’s arsenal. I could be dressed up in a Unicorn Kigurumi, I would still be the coolest person on Earth if I rolled up in the Batpod.
I will tell you this. If someone looking like Bane asked me why I would shoot a man before throwing him out of a plane, I wouldn’t smart off to him, that’s for sure.
You can check out the rest of Haagensen’s art at his website here. Spoiler alert: It’s really good.
So what do you think? Can you tell the difference between these models and the real thing? What characters would you like Haagensen to try next? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
