Given Disney’s affiliation with Marvel Comics, there’s scant chance we’ll ever see a Pixar Justice League film happen. But if the tides someday turned, these concept sketches by artist Daniel Araya would be a great place to start. Explains Araya of these designs:
Just for fun I started doing concepts for a faux Justice League CG movie. I’ve always been a huge fan of Bruce Timm and the DC Timmverse he helped create, and I thought it would be cool to basically design the JLA movie that I would direct if given the chance. I didn’t do any huge drastic changes because I didn’t want to betray the characters in terms of who they are and what they’re about.
Among the flourishes Araya has added are Jack Kirby-like spots on John Stewart’s Green Lantern outfit and a Wonder Woman whose upbringing on Paradise Island — here’s his slightly not-safe-for-work sketch of that tropical locale — doesn’t make her a team player. (“I feel like her acceptance of men would be a very slow, gradual thing and it would never be 100%,” Araya notes.) Here’s an overview of his many superheroic rejiggerings.
