This week sees the hugely anticipated release of the completely inappropriate comic book superhero Deadpool, and 2016 is set to be a strong year for the superhero genre. Due to be released this year are Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, Gambit, Doctor Strange and Sinister Six. Plenty of choice for the proud geek.
Both DC and Marvel have garnered audience interest by turning their heroes against each other, or bringing them together. With the upcoming Batman vs Superman film getting some attention for DC (though not as much as Suicide Squad, understandably) the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Three is set to pit Captain America against Iron Man in Captain America: Civil War.
This got us thinking. Arrow often crosses with The Flash, and The Flash is due to cross with Super Girl. Daredevil and Elektra storylines intertwine and Wonder Woman can be seen in the upcoming Batman vs Superman, but what crossovers or battles would we like to see from DC and Marvel in the future? What about Wonder Woman vs Super Girl? Or Robin vs Gambit?
Here we list the top 10 crossovers we would like to see in the future, assuming there is any space left for more superhero films after this year.
10 Daredevil & Batman
9 Supergirl & Wonder Woman
8 The Flash & Quicksilver
This is not an original concept in the comic book world. Fan boys have been pitting these speedsters against each other for many years. Both possess the ability to run at incredible speeds, they are both able to fly (albeit with restrictions) and they can both utilise epic strength by putting their speed behind a punch. Yet despite their similarities there are certain differences that would make either a battle or a team-up interesting. The Flash has accelerated healing powers and whilst both of them have accelerated thinking, it works in different ways. The Flash is able to phase through objects and cause a Vortex whilst Quicksilver can use molecular destabilisation.
7 The Hulk & The Beast
6 Black Widow & Harley Quinn
5 Ghost Rider & Spawn
4 Deadpool & Deathstroke
3 Suicide Squad & The Avengers
2 Green Arrow & Hawkeye
1 The Avengers & Justice League
Ok, so in the comic book world this has already happened but it would make an almighty film, hence it being number 1 on this list. Superman going up against Thor, Batman against Iron Man, Wonder Woman against...well...anybody. The possibilities for epic fights are numerous within these two teams, though the city which they fight in might end up a little worse for wear. Both of these teams have had numerous line ups over the years, so it depends on which team members are used as to who has the edge, although a team with both Wonder Woman and Superman may have the better odds but in the end, who cares. It would just be an awesome, apocalyptic battle to watch.
