The cast of Justice League is feeling so good about their superhero roles that they're ready for a smackdown that crosses universe.
Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Ray Fisher (Cyborg), Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman), and Henry Cavill (Superman) were in attendance at ACE Comic Con over the weekend and, during a panel, they were asked about the idea of a Justice League vs. the Avengers smackdown. The cast seemed up to the challenge.
“Aw, yeah man,” says Momoa. “Hell yeah. I absolutely want to get thrown around by the Hulk. And then I want to take his ass out the ocean and drown him. ‘Not so tough now, are ya, punk?!’ And then we’ll be friends.
“We’re all very much friends with those other actors from [Chris] Hemsworth to Robert Downey, I mean all of them, and so its just fun. I mean we’re superheroes. We’re having an awesome time playing great characters.”
“Smackdown? Yeah,” Fisher says. “I mean if there was a fight between the two groups, I’m fairly certain Superman and Wonder Woman would probably take maybe 90 percent of them out. [Cyborg and Aquaman would be] cheerleading on the side. Cyborg would play the foghorn.
“I mean, we all talk about it. Its the same argument about who’s faster, Superman or the Flash, you know? There’s any given circumstance where either team would be able to win. But its fun to just have that kind of fantasy.”
“For sure, I would love that,” Gadot says. “I think the more the merrier. All of these characters are great, you know, we’re not enemies. There’s DC and there’s Marvel and they’re all great and we can do DC-Marvel, starting with DC, and then everything would be super-awesome.”
Cavill decided to put the question to the fans in attendance. By a show of hands and volume of noise, he attempted to determine whether Marvel or DC would win in a smackdown. The crowd was decidedly behind DC, thought to be fair, that universe had a bit of a home turf advantage given that it was a Justice League panel.
While we're unlikely to see the Justice League and the Avengers smackdown come to life in cinemas, there are plenty of fan videos that dutifully fulfill that fantasy.
