"Seems.. more intense."
Although the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen hordes of heroes from different movies teaming up with one another — why else have an extended cinematic universe if you don’t have disparate superheroes joining forces? — one collab that probably won’t ever happen is one between Ant-Man from the MCU and Brundlefly from David Cronenberg’s 1986 horror classic, The Fly.
Fortunately, thanks to a hilarious — and more than a little disturbing — faux trailer for Ant-Man and The Fly, we can imagine what it would look like if Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang and Jeff Goldblum’s Dr. Seth Brundle formed a superhero team. (Short answer: weird. It would look very, very weird.)
In this mashup trailer courtesy of Funny or Die, Ant-Man gets a new, “more intense” partner in the form of The Fly. Sure, he’s got superhuman strength, agility, and the ability to climb walls and ceilings. But he also tends to vomit a lot.
Check it out below:
If we’re being honest, we’re impressed with how seamless and integrated the mashup looks. Well done, Funny or Die!
Now, OK. We know what you’re thinking: "But SYFY WIRE, this mashup can’t possibly happen! Jeff Goldblum is already in the MCU as Grandmaster! How could he play Brundlefly?" The answer: We have no idea. Perhaps they’re brothers? The Grandmaster got stranded on Earth and got amnesia? A parallel universe? A fissure in reality caused by the Infinity Gauntlet?
The possibilities are endless. So, now’s the time to give us your fan theories in the comments below.
