Superhero noir posters

Aside from the fame and merchandising opportunities, being a superhero isn't all that easy.

This has become increasingly apparent in the past 10 years. Adam West's brightly coloured jaunts have been transformed into Christian Bale's bleak misadventures and our dream to grow up as a masked crime-fighter changed dramatically.

Perfectly capturing this darkness, Marko Manev has created a set of 'Superhero Noir' posters that we like rather a lot.

You can see the full brooding collection below.
