Artificial intelligence can help us create realistic images that would otherwise be impossible. One of the latest examples of this innovative technology is a series of AI-generated portraits of the late SNL actor Chris Farley’s iconic performance of the Joker in the Batman comics.
These lifelike figures feature clown makeup, orange-green dyed hair, and a comedian in a bright purple suit. Each of the three portraits differs slightly in the color scheme of clothing and makeup. Despite his fictional appearance, Farley’s likeness is easily recognizable, making it easy for viewers to imagine his role.
Midjourney’s AI created these insightful portraits, which were then shared on Twitter. Although it’s been 25 years since Barley died of a drug overdose at the age of 33, these real-life pictures have viewers wondering how the real-life actor would play Gotham’s most famous villain.
