Michael Keaton

Though this fanmade trailer will be as close as we get to seeing Marvel vs. DC on the big screen, that won't stop Batman from meeting Loki. That's because Deadline reports Michael Keaton, fresh off his meta role in the much buzzed about Birdman, is finalizing a deal to join the cast of Kong: Skull Island, the Legendary Pictures production starring The Avengers and Thor villain Tom Hiddleston. There's no specifics on the characters they will play, but the film has been said to head to the mysterious and dangerous home of the titular king of apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island.

And let's not forget that another Oscar-buzzed actor, Whiplash star J.K. Simmons also has a role in the film that will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (Kings of Summer, Nick Offerman: American Ham) with a script by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein and Real Steel writer John Gatins. The film is slated for release in 3D (and also IMAX 3D) as well as traditional 2D theaters on March 10th, 2017. And Legendary will keep their giant monster films rolling with Godzilla 2 already slated for release on June 8th, 2018. Could we see King Kong and Godzilla come together in 2019? It's not an impossibility. Stay tuned.

Keaton is always a very solid pick for really anything. This is shaping up to be quite the little epic, isn't it?
