AListProductions is at it again with yet another awesome fan-made trailer. I discussed their amazing retro DC universe trailer a few months back but now they have upped their game significantly by bringing together heroes from across both the DC and the Marvel universes to create the ultimate crossover: the DC/Marvel: Infinite Crisis fan-made trailer.
This trailer is all kinds of incredible, with pretty much every superhero to appear on screen in some way from both Marvel and DC making an appearance. What I love about these trailers is that no matter how the film or television series was received, the characters still make a comeback. Everyone from Lou Ferrigno’s Hulk from The Incredible Hulk television show of the 70’s and 80’s to the latest iteration of Batman by Ben Affleck and even to the likes of Ryan Reynolds’s Green Lantern and the 1970’s The Amazing Spider-Man series, this trailer rivals Super Smash Brothers: Ultimate when it comes to just how many heroes are here.
Some of my favourite shots from the fan-made trailer include the transition from the 70’s and 80’s Hulk and Thor to the 2012 Hulk and Thor from The Avengers; Tom Holland’s Peter Parker realising that he isn’t the only Spider-Man as we see Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s versions of the character; Ben Affleck’s Batman, Henry Cavill’s Superman and Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman teaming up with Chris Evans’s Captain America and Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man; Chris Evans joining forces with himself as both Captain America and The Human Torch from the Fantastic Four films; various versions of the same character striking a pose together such as Lynda Carter and Gal Gadot’s versions of Wonder Woman, Eric Bana and Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and Jovian Wade and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg; and finally the iconic final shot of an old version of Christopher Reeves’s Superman. My nerd brain is so happy to see all of these characters come together.
There was a time when superhero movies and television shows like this seemed incomprehensible. Nowadays, seeing so many characters on screen at once- such as in the epic portals scene in Avengers: Endgame– can feel unreal at times because of how impossible it once seemed. Maybe one day, this kind of film would be possible? Who knows, but in the meantime I’m going to go and re watch this trailer another hundred times.
