Since the start of this month, we have been witnessing the kids of Derry, Maine being haunted by a bloodthirsty clown who will stop at nothing to make them his meal. Yes, we are talking about our beloved villain, Pennywise, who has redefined fear for this entire generation (although the brave hearts think otherwise and aren’t scared of him). But, it seems that kids aren’t the only ones who are frightened by his deadly charm. Gotham City’s protector, Batman, seems to be intimidated and is suffering sleepless nights because of him. While we could not have imagined this even in our wildest dreams, a die-hard fan sure did and created a kickass trailer where Batman aka Ben Affleck gears up to wage war against Pennywise aka Bill Skarsgard in an epic showdown.
Fan theories of any show are possibly one of the best things to watch out for, even better than spin offs. But things get a little more interesting when someone takes it a notch higher and creates a fan trailer, which is so good that we start hoping for someone to make it happen for real. This ‘Batman vs IT/ Pennywise’ trailer is one such masterpiece and the entire credit goes to the YouTuber Adeel of Steel. Taking stills from ‘Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice’, ‘Suicide Squad’ and ‘It’; this guy has created an insane trailer focusing on the psychological impact that Pennywise has on Batman, which originally were scenes of Affleck coping with nightmares of his parents’ death and fighting with Superman, among others. We are honestly in love with this guy’s editing skills, which makes the trailer look so flawless that we now want someone to make a movie where Pennywise plays Batman’s nemesis.
While Stephen King did a great job with the novel, Andrés Muschietti did a fabulous job in resurrecting Pennywise’s terror. So much so that the movie became the highest grossing horror movie of all time, beating ‘The Exorcist’ in the US. Well, we hope that the ‘It’ sequel gets only bigger and better than this.
Dealing with clowns isn’t anything new for Batman, but if both Pennywise and Joker mess things up for him, then even Bruce Wayne will be pushed to the limits and will lose his mind! So, who else wants Batman to go head-to-head with Pennywise? Well, we definitely want this to happen.
