Watch Tony Hale & Adam Pally Fight for Glory in Funny or Die’s ‘Captain America: Civil War Re-Enactors’

CWreMain

#TeamCap and #TeamIronMan just drafted their worst recruits.

In a sketch that honors the Merry Marvel manner of Not Brand Ecch, comedy stars Tony Hale and Adam Pally play a pair of committed Civil War re-enactors hellbent on breathing life into the conflict between Steve Rogers and Tony Stark through a dramatic re-staging of events. The epic, 13-minute send-up eschews fandom at its silliest, delusion at its finest, passions at their strongest, and uniforms at their saggiest.

apocalypse-lego

With Apocalypse’s declaration that “Everything they built will fall,” it was only a matter of time before somebody created a LEGO version of the X-Men: Apocalypse trailer. Oh, who are we kidding? A LEGO version was pretty much inevitable, no matter what the ancient mutant said.

Enormous Deadpool statue seeks to seduce Japan

deadpool-statue

Wade Wilson is determined to win over the people of Japan … with an enormous statue of Deadpool lying seductively on the bed of a truck.

If you think that come-hither pose looks familiar, it’s because it was used in the marketing of the blockbuster movie. Only that time, the Merc With a Mouth was lying, Burt Reynolds-like, on a bearskin run, in front of a fireplace.

‘Captain America: Civil War’ 8-bit trailer will make you dust off your NES

8-bit-social

Although Steve Rogers slept through the 8-bit era, Bucky Barnes may have around, although it’s difficult to imagine him taking a break from assassinations to enjoy a little Castlevania or Super Mario Bros. Nevertheless, both of them would probably appreciate the nostalgia at play in this 8-bit remake of the Captain America: Civil War trailer.

It’s pretty authentic, too, with the dialogue — to say nothing of the music — recreated in classic video game style.

This might be the one incarnation of Jurassic Park that doesn’t result in utter disaster — a man has built a miniature version of the film franchise’s titular attraction for his pet tortoise, Louie, in his backyard.

The owner, Oliver Turpin, wrote in the YouTube description: “I made a minature Jurassic Park for my Leopard Tortoise Louie. It has grazing areas with seeds planted to grow as the weather gets better, a pool for him to drink/swim about in, visitors center and the Jurassic Park Gates.”

x-men-costumes

Nearly 16 years after the release of Bryan Singer’s X-Men, fans still have strong opinions about the filmmakers’ decision to ditch the brightly colored costumes of the comics in favor of black leather, which continued through 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. However, with the revival of the film franchise in 2011’s X-Men: First Class and the success of Deadpool, Kristian Williams has hopes for a brighter big-screen future for Marvel’s mutants.

In his latest YouTube video, he lays out a passionate yet well-reasoned case for the importance of color and costumes within the X-Men mythos, across comics, animation and film.

Watch: Alfred Pennyworth is the hero we really need

alfred-social

No matter who’s wearing the cape and cowl, whether it be Adam West, Michael Keaton or Christian Bale, it’s the person wearing the impeccable suit and tie of butler and confidante Alfred Pennyworth who’s consistently the most valuable player of the Batman franchise.

Whether its Alan Napier, Michael Gough, Michael Caine or Sean Pertwee looking out for Bruce Wayne’s best interests, Alfred always comes equipped with a sharp tongue and more common sense than his employer. And for that, Slate pays tribute to the true hero of Gotham with this montage that races eight decades of Alfred on screen.

fallout-rogue-one

If you’re still reeling from the debut last week of the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story teaser trailer, you may want to brace yourself for another viewing — this time in Fallout 4.

See the ‘Dark Knight’ Trilogy condensed into 90 seconds

dark knight

Filmmakers can’t resist retelling Batman’s origin, despite that it’s so widely known the LEGO Movie could (hilariously) boilt it down to the lyrics “Darkness/No Parents.”

Now Burger Fiction gives the Caped Crusader’s backstory all the time it probably requires in this video that captures Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy in just 90 seconds. Don’t blink, or you’ll miss young Bruce freaking out over bats, and then sitting at the corpses of Thomas and Martha Wayne.
