The massive cinematic universes of Marvel and DC will likely never converge on the big screen, since both are housed at different studios. Marvel and Disney control several of their own comic book properties, along with Sony and 20th Century Fox), while Warner Bros. is adapting the DC comic books for the big screen. Though, it's always fun to speculate would might happen if some sort of blockbuster deal were worked out. A new fan-made trailer gives us an explosive look at the action that might ensue should these two worlds collide! Alex Luthor made this non-profit video "purely for fun," which features over three and a half minutes filled with spliced together footage from several superhero adventures on both sides of the comic book spectrum.
The Marvel side is represented by Marvel's The Avengers, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor: The Dark World, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, X-Men, X-Men Days of Future Past, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ghost Rider. The DC universe is shown with footage from Man of Steel, Green Lantern, The Dark Knight, TV shows Arrow and The Flash, and even NBC's failed Wonder Woman pilot starring Adrianne Palicki. The trailer teases a number of intriguing match-ups, like Thor vs Superman, The Flash vs Ghost Rider, Wolverine vs Deathstroke and many more.
It's unlikely that this will ever happen, especially since Marvel is currently trying to bring back properties such as Sony's Spider-Man into the Marvel Studios fold. If Marvel is eventually able to re-acquire the rights to Spider-Man and 20th Century Fox properties like X-Men and The Fantastic Four, perhaps they may then set their sights on a massive Marvel/DC mash-up. Still, that possibility is years upon years away from ever happening, at best. In the meantime, you can check out this trailer below, and chime in with your thoughts about which is the most intriguing Marvel/DC superhero match-up teased in this footage.
