With [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) on the horizon, and with awesome fan-made showdowns like Goku vs Superman as inspiration, I wanted to do a rundown of some of the best videos done by fans that show mash-ups of iconic characters duking it out. There are more out there in the interwebz than you may have thought!
So, without further ado, here they are!
1. Freddy vs. Jason vs. Michael vs. Ghostface vs. Chucky by shaked9591
Can I please mention that I'm incredibly into the fact that they chose DJ Khaled's "Out Here Grindin" for this thoroughly creepy video. It actually takes away from the creepiness factor and just leaves you with a "highlight tape" of sorts. Really good stuff.
2. Marvel vs DC Epic Trailer (Music removed, but still AWESOME) by Alex Luthor
This one has done incredibly well, garnering close to 6 MILLION views. The sound is gone, but it does an awesome job of mashing together the two universes and letting it flow together nicely. This is a movie that, I hope, gets made some time in my lifetime but we'll have to see about that, clearly.
3. "Paczilla" - Pacific Rim vs. Godzilla by MOVIECLIPS Trailers
So, this might be a little unfair, simply due to the fact that a company (MOVIECLIPS) with immense resources was the team that put this together, but I had to include it for obvious reasons. Firstly, it just matches up so well, secondly, the professionalism of the mash-up makes for a really awesome trailer. I would love to see this movie too!
4. Jason Statham vs. Terminator by Studio TC
I still fully subscribe to the notion that Jason Statham is the modern day Chuck Norris and that he can do no wrong. Statham has carved out a very specific niche in Hollywood and he will keep wow-ing us, I think, for at least another action-packed decade. Arnold is more than worthy, though, of this mashup. The music got me, I watched this and immediately felt like drop-kicking someone in the forehead.
5. Bruce Lee vs... Bruce Lee? by ANTONIO MARIA DA SILVA AMDSFILMS
Just as sick/badass as you possibly could have imagined, this Bruce Lee vs Bruce Lee mashup is too good. I mean the only dude who could whoop Bruce Lee in a fight is probably Bruce Lee, to be honest.
I wish that these were all real feature films, but sadly that isn't the case. However, if you're looking for two badass dudes to duke it out, [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) is coming... and while I doubt we'll ever settle on whether Batman or Superman is better, I think it's going to do super well in the box office and entertain us to boot.
