Avengers fanartists, assemble!
With Age of Ultron‘s U.S. release date just a week away, fans are feeling inspired. Among the artists churning out incredible pieces of Avengers fanart is Deviantartist Daniel Kamarudin, a.k.a. thedurrrrian. Kamarudin has created a series reimagining your favorite Marvel superheroes as medieval war heroes.
It makes a lot of sense, especially given the incredible results. Here are a few of our favorites from Kamarudin’s full Ultron lineup.

These #Avengers re-imagined as brooding, dark #fantasy characters are spectacular.

Kamarudin didn’t stray too much from the original 2012 film in terms of his portrayal of the heroes, though he did note that he went “a bit more Viking” for Thor and got rid of Natasha’s notorious “cleavage window.”
But though the changes might be slight, the impact is visceral. Something about putting these superheroes in hardcore armor drives home just how intense their powers are.
