One of the wonderful things about geek/nerd culture is the concept of putting two characters from separate universes against each other, and discussing who would win. In fact, certain shows on the internet do just that!
For comics, the easy VS Matches are between DC and Marvel characters, not the least reason why is because there are a lot of similarities between certain iconic characters. A good example is Bruce Wayne/Batman and Tony Stark/Iron Man. The two are both genius billionaires with tragic backstories who decide to take justice into their own hands, using tech they themselves create.
On the latest Screen Junkies, which you can see in full below, director Kevin Smith said he’d want to do a team-up versus movie between DC and Marvel characters, with one of the highlights being Batman Vs Iron Man.
“I want to do the titanic team-up versus, which would be the millionaire, playboy, money fight: Batman versus Iron Man,” Smith offered. Then he goes off on a brief Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice tangent explaining how The Dark Knight (Ben Affleck) and the Man of Steel (Henry Cavill) aren’t quite the opposites WB are selling them as. “I think it would be more interesting to have two billionaires with questionable…,” Smith continued his pitch. “Their parents didn’t get to spend their whole lives with them, let’s say. Who turn to crime-fighting using money and technology to make their fight.”
