The Avengers – A Classic "PreMake" [Video]

The Avengers 223x123 The Avengers   A Classic "PreMake" [Video] Ivan Guerrero, the man behind various 1930s, ’40s and ’50s remakes including the very impressive and entertaining Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Ghostbusters offerings is at it again, this time “pre-making” the soon to be released The Avengers movie.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ivan’s work, it’s simple, yet oddly complex, he basically finds various black and white movies from the past, some more known and some obscure and scours them for characters that look like or actually are the same as the characters in movies made after the time of those films, he then brilliantly edits those films with an old school voice over to give them the appearance of being the original version of the film.

How good are his pre-makes? I actually had a buddy email me and said George Lucas had ripped off an old movie and “how did people not realize this!”

If you’re a fan of MST3K you’ll notice quite a few of these clips including:

Commander Cody as Iron Man, the Amazing Colossal Man as Giant Man and Emma Peel as the Black Widow. Overall there are 18 Marvel characters in the pre-make. Can you find all of the characters?

Here’s the video:

What do you think about the pre-make? And did you find all the Marvel characters?
