What if Wes Anderson Directed X-Men?

Wes Anderson and superheroes.

They are two things that seem to fit so perfectly, it’s amazing no one has ever thought of it before. Well, now Patrick Willems has and his What if Wes Anderson directed X-Men short film is a match made in fanboy heaven.

You've got the quirky characters (who have endearing qualities like death ray shooting eyes), flamboyant clothes and lots of scope for slow motion.

Best of all though is Magneto and his red velvet jacket teamed with a white silk scarf, which manages to be both very Wes Anderson and very Magneto.

Having recently lost out at the Oscars, Wes may be considering a new artistic direction. We think he's just found it.

After all, Professor Xavier already sounds like a Wes Anderson character.
