Fan-Made 'Justice League' Trailer Unites Arrowverse, Fights Thanos

In a parallel universe, the DC cinematic franchise rules while Marvel struggles to catch up. A fan-made YouTube trailer offers a glimpse of that universe, with a surprisingly well-made edit of the Justice League trailer in the style of Avengers: Infinity War that not only unites the DC cinematic universe with the Arrowverse (and 2011’s Green Lantern), but also pits the DC heroes against the Mad Titan, Thanos.

On Monday, a YouTube channel named Live Breathe Media, run by an individual who identifies as “Aaron,” uploaded a video simply titled Justice League: Avengers Infinity War Style. It’s a straightforward title, because the video is literally the Avengers: Infinity War trailer edited with clips of Justice League, Batman v Superman, Green Lantern, and episodes of Arrow and The Flash.

The most interesting thing is that the video doesn’t dance around the fact that it’s Josh Brolin’s Thanos, a Marvel character, who does most of the disembodied voice over. Nor does Aaron try to photoshop Thanos to make him resemble Darkseid. It’s just Thanos, crossing over to DC to fight the Justice League. Cool.

Another fun thing the trailer does is assemble a unique live-action iteration of the Justice League: It’s basically all of the cinematic Justice League — Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, etc. — with Ezra Miller’s Flash swapped for TV’s Grant Gustin. Joining the team are two emerald heroes, the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell, from Arrow) and Green Lantern, of course played by Ryan Reynolds. Sadly the heroes from Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning, and Constantine are left out, but this Justice League is pretty stacked anyway.

Justice League has come and gone, and it’s only a few months until Avengers: Infinity War blows everyone away. While DC fans may be in mourning for how Justice League turned out, this remixed trailer is enough to get excited for Infinity War all over again.

Avengers: Infinity War will be released on May 4.

Finally, there’s some legitimately good news about production on Rick and Morty Season 4. Animation has officially begun, though that also means the release date probably won’t arrive for half a year or more.

Rick and Morty’s animation supervisor Eric Bofa Nfon tweeted last Friday about a “Casual meeting,” saying in the tweet that it was his “First week back!” Nfon included the hashtag “#RaM4,” clearly referencing Rick and Morty Season 4. There’s also an Emmy award sitting on the table, no doubt because the show won an Emmy for Season 3’s “Pickle Rick” last year.

One of Spider-Man’s lesser-known enemies is hitting the big screen, which is actually kind of a problem. In Spider-Man: Far From Home, we’ll again see Tom Holland as the hero, forced to team up with Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio, who audiences got their first glimpse of in a trailer released on Tuesday. Because of Mysterio’s mastery over illusions, potentially anything in the trailer could be called into question. Even returning characters like Nick Fury.

Spider-Man has a big fan in Flash Thompson. Unfortunately, Flash also makes Peter Parker’s life a living hell, and the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home really delivers on this dichotomy with a great gag that pays homage to the Flash Thompson from the Spider-Man comics.

On Tuesday, Marvel film star Tom Holland premiered the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home, in which Peter Parker embarks on a vacation to Europe but is recruited by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) for a very special mission.

Video game developer Epic Games structures seasonal gameplay for Fortnite: Battle Royale around the actual seasons of the year. Winter has already come, but before long Season 8 will cue spring.

Each season has around 10 official weeks of challenges with at least an extra week at the end. These many challenges offer players a chance to earn rewards throughout the season, and they carry over their rewards when the whole process restarts each season.

You’re driving alone down a dirt road, and you’re falling asleep at the wheel. Suddenly, a burst of light streaks across the sky — there’s a floating, flat shape in the air right in front of your truck, and though it soared quickly into view, it seems to have stopped completely. A beam of light shoots out from underneath the craft, and a little man with huge eyes, an enormous head, and a tiny body appears in the middle of the road. He doesn’t want to hurt you; he just wants to stick a probe in your nasal cavity.
