Fans are quite familiar with DC's Flashpoint event now that it's been adapted into CW's The Flash series, but imagine if it had happened in the Marvel Universe instead?
That's the premise of a new fan trailer from YouTube user Alex Luthor, and it brilliantly realizes the premise with spliced up footage from a variety of sources. He partnered with Vordeel to create the effects, which effectively pull off the alternate universe theme with swapped out color palettes and Hydra imagery all throughout, even placing Hydra symbols on Captain America's armor and helmet. The music by Razor (Forget What You Think You Know) and quotations throughout also help deliver some tension, and it almost makes one wish the trailer was real.
You can check out the trailer above, and make sure to read the story behind it below. Alex Luthor's work can be found on his YouTube page. Voordeel can be found on her YouTube page as well, as can Razor.
Little information about the story: Scarlet Witch is the reason why this alternate universe thing happens. Captain America and here are the only ones that know that everything is changed. Captain America wakes up in his doppelganger’s body, and he learns that Hydra has won World War 2, and his version of this reality actually helped Hydra win the war and conquer the world. Hydra is now and Empire, and Tony Stark is the emperor.
Wakanda is one of the only places on Earth isn’t part of the Hydra empire, and Black Panther leads his people in a war against Tony and his Hydra army.
Mutants and super powered beings are being hunted by Hydra. Magneto is the leader of the resistance. Wolverine is part of the resistance too, but he was captured. Black Widow is a resistance spy that infiltrated Hydra, she is married to Captain America, and she is on a mission to kill him (the evil version of Capt). Both Spider-Man and Rhodey are part of the resistance and they stole suits and armor from Stark. Hulk is red and he is the Doomsday weapon for Hydra. Bucky is an assassins for Hydra. Loki rules Asgard, while Thor is missing. Ultron is actually something of a Vision in this reality, and he is not evil or good, he is on his own side.
