Even though we are T-minus eight months away from the highly anticipated opening of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” the Internet is already plump with parodies of the film. And why shouldn’t it be? After all, it has to take a break from cats sometime.
The latest parody (this one from writer David Elmaleh) brilliantly combines the voiceover from the ‘Batman v Superman’ trailer with shots from “The Social Network,” transforming the preview from a cautionary tale about the omnipotent hero from Krypton into one about the billionaire tech guru, Mark Zuckerberg. And the result, retitled “Mark v The Winklevii,” is hilarious. (I just have to emphasize how perfect the editing is. Major props to Elmaleh for his genius cutting work.)
I could go on and on about the parody video, but at a mere 2 minutes and 12 seconds, it’s way better that I just let you take the time to watch and appreciate it for yourself. Oh, and all joking aside, my inner geek—which, I’ll admit, is the same as my outer geek—can’t wait for ‘Dawn of Justice.’
Check out the video below, and thanks to A.V. Club for spotting it.
