BATMAN V SUPERMAN Retro Trailer Parody with Christopher Reeve, Adam West

Following a viral video mashup showcasing Matthew McConaughey as the biggest Star Wars fanboy of all time, Batman v Superman now gets a pretty excellent meme too.

The first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was unyielding dark, so much so that many DC fans said that the Zach Snyder movie is going to be depressing to watch. The studio is also taking the narrative in a trailer a little big boring.

So another YouTube user, Bobby Burns, wasted no time in getting his trailer parody and adding in iconic actors Adam West and Christopher Reeve in the roles as Bat and Supes.

Reeve, who first took flight in the original Superman in 1978, and West‘s goofy version of the Caped Crusader, who he played in the 1966’s Batman: The Movie, pitted against each other. It’s good fun to see how much has changed in our depictions of the Dark Knight (below). The dramatic audio from the epic Batman v Superman teaser remains the same, while even Burt Ward‘s Robin takes center stage. Watch the two-minute-clip below.

Not bad. There are plenty of scenes they could’ve used if Batman standing around doing nothing (like on an elevator).
