We've all played at fantasy casting, that what-if game in which you suggest who you believe is the perfect performer for a role. But now you don't even have to bother stretching your imagination—because artist Sean Hartter has imagined some fantasy casting for you.

Hartter, a self-proclaimed sci-fi geek, reimagined popular movies as grindhouse exploitation posters with his own casting ideas. He told Wired, "These posters are based on the idea that they're from multiple universes, which frees me up to tinker with time frames and poster design."

And he's done some awesome casting; we especially love, and can completely believe, Tim Curry as the Joker. We've picked out some of our favorites for you below.

To see his other inspired casting—such as Sir Alec Guinness as Professor X and William Shatner as Daredevil—check out the original Wired article. (You can always purchase these, as well as his other creations, on his website.)
