Through the power of computer generated imagery, one fan has created the ultimate smackdown between superhero titans: Superman and Hulk.
It’s a fight that we will likely never see on the big screen. Marvel and DC don’t do crossovers anymore in comics; the logistics of working out a crossover on the big screen, where Hollywood studio politics come into play, would be utterly inconceivable.
Adding even more to the impossibility of what you’re about to see: the CGI animator responsible for the epic fight, Michael Habjan, didn’t pick just any old Superman and Hulk. This is the Edward Nortan version of the Hulk vs. Christopher Reeve’s Superman. (My money’s on Supes. Hulk is crazy strong, but brute, animalistic strength is all he’s got going for him. Superman’s got strength plus other powers, and actual fighting skills.)
Habjan points out on his YouTube listing that he’s learning how to animate as he goes, so you’ll note how his animation skills and style have improved visibly as he’s worked through the various parts of this project — a project he says is still ongoing. So we’ll have to wait a while to see who wins in the end.
It starts with this prelude:
And then the fight begins:
Finally, the fight gets more intense, more brutal:
Not bad, eh?
