‘Neon Sign Posters’ Light Up Batman, Superman and More in Clever Animated Ways

We’re always on the lookout for interesting artistic takes on our favorite characters, and today, we’ve found a great one over at Unreality Magazine: Mr. Whaite’s Neon Posters, a series of animated gifs that imagine movie posters done as flashing neon signs.

They’re awesomely clever and beautifully well-designed, and with the prominence of comic booksin Hollywood, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that he has plenty of creations devoted to some of our favorite things show up in beautiful digital neon. Check out of a few of the best after the cut!

It probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone that my favorite is Whaite’s take on Batman ’89. The use of the bat-symbol as the Joker’s lips is just an awesome visual.

Along the same lines, his take on Captain America is a nice contrast as well, especially once you realized the clever focal point used to build both characters:

Of all the scenes in Star Wars, it might be a little surprising that he opted to go for one that doesn’t involve lightsabers, but presumably that’d be too easy to do up in neon. Plus, trust me on this one, “glowing miniature Princess Leia” is a shockingly popular search term for fetishists:

Whaite’s take on the AT-ATs from The Empire Strikes Back are exactly as convincing as the original stop motion used in the movie. Hopefully there won’t be a special edition that cleans them up:

It’s a great representation of Vader’s choice between good an devil, but if I’m honest with you, the only thing I can think when I see Whaite’s Return of the Jedi piece is James Earl Jones saying “I whip my hair back and forth, I whip my hair back and forth”:

Slimer going through a series of emoticons is awesome enough, but the real draw for Ghostbusters is a Neon Harold Raimis:

And finally, a poster with a twist:

For more from Whaite, including neon posters of Pulp Fiction, Inception, Jaws and others, check out the incredible art on his Tumblr!
