Hollywood heavyweights Iron Man and Batman have teamed up to explain the real difference between Marvel and DC superhero movies – in song.
Generally speaking, the world of mainstream superheroes can be broken down into two groups: Marvel and DC. Likewise, so can the superhero movies that have been so popular in recent years. But in that regard, there’s a bit of an imbalance; aside from a single Superman film, DC has relied entirely on the Dark Knight to carry the torch, while Marvel has thrown so many superhero flicks at moviegoers over the past decade that it’s actually “rebooted” not one but two franchises that are less than ten years old.
It’s a strange situation. Fortunately for all of us, we have blockbuster representatives from both sides to break it down. Batman may not appear entirely enthusiastic about the whole thing but you know how he is, and Iron Man is obviously having enough of a good time for both of them. The numerous cameo appearances from Superman, Green Lantern, Spider-Man and others make the whole thing even more epic.
The video is actually the 100th episode of the I’m a Marvel… and I’m a DC series of videos created by YouTube user ItsJustSomeRandomGuy. It’s all pretty good stuff but for sheer awesomeness, I don’t think this one can be beat. And I don’t know, what do you guys think: Does Rhodey look different to you?
