Superhero movie fans would be hard pressed to find to tonally and stylistically different films than DC Films’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The former is self-serious, dark, and ominous, while the latter is equal parts bright colors, popular music, and jokes.
Have you ever wondered what might happen if someone combined the two? One fan did, and then provided an answer.
Chandler Balli (@CinematicEX on Twitter) imagined what Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice might be like if it borrowed the opening sequence from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. What you get is Ben Affleck’s Batman beating up thugs to the tune of Electric Light Orchestra’s “Mr. Blue Sky” accompanied by some stylish credits.
The end result really isn't bad. Perhaps Zack Sndyer and James Gunn should find a project to collaborate on.
