Given the way most people feel about Marvel movies versus how they feel about Man of Steel and Bayformers, a mash-up flick probably doesn’t top anybody’s wishlist. But if it did, I’d want it to look something like this. “Alex Luthor,” who brought us that outstanding fake Marvel vs. DC trailer this past December, has now gone and added Optimus, Megatron and the crew. If nothing else, it’s an effective critique of how limited the environments for big action movies are, and how easy it is to match angles of projectiles being fired at things.
Though I love the way he throws in fan film and video-game footage super-quickly before you can really process what it is. If Mr. Luthor isn’t a pro, as I suspected last time, somebody needs to hire him.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
