A time honored tradition in the halls of any kind of fandom is the classic “who would win if X fought X” argument. Hulk Vs. Superman? Batman vs. Wolverine? Everyone’s got an opinion.
Fortunately for the general public and fandom as a whole, the passionate and talented filmmakers of Ismahawk are bringing some of the most recent and contentious (and funny) battles to life. Spearheaded by producing/directing duo Jeremy Le and Danny Shepherd, the Ismahawk crew are proving just what fan films can be with the right energy and resources. Seriously, you need to head over to their YouTube channel right now to see the previous Minute Match-Ups, Danny’s Nightwing series, and their incredibly thorough behind the scenes vids.
If someone doesn’t come along and give these guys a movie deal, that is an opportunity lost for EVERYONE. But thanks to the good folks at CrunchyRoll (and in collaboration with Round Table Studios), on October 12th they’re giving us a mecha battle for the ages.
Seriously. This is the textbook definition of good stuff. And if this is just the trailer, the final product promises to be nothing short of AMAZING. And hey: the facts that the Netflix-based Voltron show just got greenlit for a 2nd season and the big budget Power Rangers movie is in the works makes this incredibly well-timed.
The best part? You can totally help boost the signal of this talented team of INDEPENDENT filmmakers! Hop on over to any of their social media platforms and weigh in as to whether you’re on #TeamVoltron or #TeamPowerRangers, and check out YouTube Wednesday morning to see who wins!
