In a video uploaded to YouTube back in 2007, a parody video of Apple’s famous “I’m a Mac and I’m a PC” ad, and it predicted that one day DC would have a Wonder Woman and The Flash would have their own movies.
On March 7, 2007, user ‘It’s Just Some Random Guy’ uploaded a video titled, “Hi, I’m a Marvel…and I’m a DC. (Mac PC Parody) #1”. In the video, a Spiderman action figure takes on the role of Apple and a Superman action figure as PC. There is a part in the video where Spiderman asks Superman if DC has any future plans to make more movies since Superman had returned to Hollywood (which follows Superman Returns release in 2006). Here Superman confirms that there would be an excessive amount of stand-alone films based on DC’s superheroes, mentioning in particular Wonder Woman, The Flash, and even The Justice League.
“We just asked a few writers to think about the possibility of maybe what it might take to theoretically make a Justice League movie in the next 10 years or possibly more perhaps,” Superman says.
Now 10 years later, DC and Warner Bros. are getting ready to release Wonder Woman on June 2, and The Flash in 2018, following the release of Justice League on November 17. In the next part of the video Superman then asks Spiderman what movies Marvel has planned, to which he replies that after Marvel are done making Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor movies, they’ll begin working on Ant-Man and even The Avengers.
“Not to mention negotiating for three more of my movies,” Spider-Man says, which was before when Marvel and Sony agreed on making exactly three movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The number of predictions that came true in this video is absolutely marvel-ous (not sorry for the pun), and the video itself still holds up to this day.
The next movies to be released by DC and Marvel are Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, and Wonder Woman will be out on June 2. You can check out the video below:
