Okay, this came from Tumblr originally, but I wanted to expand on what actually sounded like a pretty epic concept. Take the film The Emperor's New Groove and replace all the major characters with ones from the Avengers universe. What little was on Tumblr sounded like the beginning of the most epic crossover in history... if only someone would finish it. I mean seriously, they started something incredible and then totally dropped it.
Look at that. THAT'S STINKIN' GENIUS, PEOPLE! There is so much fun that could be had with this crossover. Come on, Disney. You guys own Marvel now, make this happen! The people on Tumblr even totally set up the cast for you!
Starring Emperor Stark
^ Um, yup. Pretty sure that qualifies.
Tony would be perfect as the bratty emperor who's used to getting his own way all the time. And just think of the possibilities for Marvel references if this actually became a thing! Instead of telling Pacha that his town will be replaced by Kuzcotopia, Tony says that it's now going to be the site of Stark Tower. He could totally say, "It's my birthday gift to me! Like Christmas, but with more... ME!"
To really put you in the mood for what Emperor Stark is all about, watch this music video.
With Captain Ameri-acha
Cap is perfect to be Pacha, because he's a big, genuine guy, but that doesn't mean he's a good person to have angry with you. Tony/Kuzco's right: "This guy's trouble." Now I can't say we shouldn't throw something in here about the Hulk, but then again, maybe it's for the best that we don't. Also, the whole conflict between the two throughout the movie and especially in their battle on the bridge would segue nicely into Civil War.
And introducing Kronk, god of thunder
This is just wonderful casting on so many levels. Thor and Kronk share so many great qualities. Like being super huge and muscular, but maybe not being the sharpest knife in the drawer. That's not to say they're stupid, they're both brilliant... sometimes. They'll have the occasional brainstorm, but mostly, their only mission is to add some extra muscle and create cool personal theme music. Not to mention they're both a little clumsy sometimes, which makes us love them even more. But, really, "Thor, are you talking to that squirrel?" would sound way cooler if the squirrel piped up and said, "Actually, I'm a raccoon. Name's Rocket." Yep, I totally just threw a Guardians of the Galaxy cameo in here. You're welcome.
With special guest appearance by Yzma, goddess of mischief
I wasn't thrilled with this casting at first, but then I thought about it and realized how good it could be if it was done right. There are so many possibilities for Marvel references in Yzma's dialogue that it's not even funny and I think Loki could make it even better!
