Captain America: Civil War Done In The Dark Knight Returns Style

Civil War Dark Knight

Warner Bros. might have Batman Vs. Superman coming in March 2016, but Marvel Studios is countering with Captain America Vs. Iron Man in May 2016. Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice is said to be heavily influenced by Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, while Captain America 3 is based on the Civil War storyline from Marvel Comics.

In some amazing artwork, artist Butcher Billy has reimagined Captain America: Civil War into the style of The Dark Knight Returns. The artwork above shows Captain America taking the role of Batman and Iron Man taking the role of Superman in a famous scenes from The Dark Knight Returns.

In the second image, the roles are reversed with Captain America taking the role of Superman and Batman taking the role of Iron Man. Be sure to check out the rest of Butcher Billy’s artwork on
