I’m posting this months-old fan-made trailer for a 3-D “Namor: The Sub-Mariner” because it’s so well done that I don’t even want an actual “Namor” movie now. Just like I was feeling after that fake “Thundercats” trailer hit a while back, I don’t think Hollywood could actually make a real version that’s as good, let alone better. Most comic-book movie trailers give away too much anyway, as if they were features abridged into shorts, so by being a faithfully bad trailer for a movie that doesn’t exist, it’s already a sufficient look at what we’d get as a feature.
The video mashes up a bunch of different movies, including “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou,” featuring a blue-dyed Angelica Huston as Namor’s Atlantean mother and Bill Murray as his human ship-captain father. Most clips are from Dwayne Johnson movies like “Tooth Fairy” and “Get Smart.” And the hypothetical movie is linked to the “Avengers” film universe, so there’s scenes with Chris Evans as Steve Rogers and Terry Crews (replacing Samuel L. Jackson) as Nick Fury.
Watch the video after the jump.
