Spoof Trailer Shows Off 'The Avengers' Cast If It Was Made in the 90s
"Imagine that the MCU was created 20 years ago… What would Avengers have done with a 1999 cast?" That's the question they posed when making this new comedy trailer. The Avengers 90s Cast Trailer is a spoof trailer made by a French website + YouTube channel known as "What's the Mashup?". It's as good as it sounds, if not even better than you might be expecting, mashing up tons of old footage from 90s movies with various Avengers footage (from nowadays) adding in some of the most famous actors of the 90s. The cast they came up with is something else. Tom Cruise is Iron Man, Brad Pitt is Thor, Keanu Reeves is Doctor Strange, Elijah Wood is Spider-Man, Sarah Michelle Gellar is Captain Marvel, Jean-Claude Van Damme is Captain America, Milla Jovovich is Black Widow, and David Hasselhoff is Nick Fury. How about that team up? Even if you think this sounds dumb, just watch the trailer - it'll give you a laugh.
We've included the original details below for Avengers: Endgame, since all the excitement now is for that.
The Avengers prepare for a final showdown with Thanos. A culmination of 22 interconnected movies, the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the final turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it. Marvel's Avengers: Endgame is once again directed by Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, known as the Russo Brothers, directors of the movies Welcome to Collinwood, You Me and Dupree, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War previously. The screenplay is written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely; based on the Marvel comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Disney and Marvel Studios will release the Russo Brothers' finale Avengers: Endgame in theaters everywhere starting April 26th, 2019 to kick off the summer. Get your tickets to see this here.
Pretty spot on. Although, I don't think David Hasselhoff would have transitioned to an A list picture. Maybe Bruce Willis, Nic Cage, John Travolta or Sam Jackson as Nick Fury.

Gotta be Travolta, just for the Helicarrier joke: Tony Stark (covers one eye) "How does Fury see all these monitors?" Agent Maria Hill "He turns." - insert confused Travolta gif here -

Matt Damon would have been Captain America. Jackson would still be Fury.

Matt Damon wasn't an "action movie" star until Jason Bourne which was early Aught's IIRC... checked it: Bourne #1 came out 2002. This trailer (and the joke of it i guess) would be early to mid 90s action. 90s Matt Damon would've been more of a Kevin Smith Avengers movie: Matt Damon as Cap (he does fit the role) Ben Affleck as Thor (just to see him in the blonde wig) Jason Mewes as Loki Kevin Smith as Odin AND Nick Fury (you gotta dig the eyepatches man) Chris Rock as Nat "The Black Panther" X Alan Rickman as Dr Strange Jeff Anderson (Randal from Clerks) as Bruce Banner Lou Ferrigno as The Hulk Rosario Dawson as Black Widow Brian O'Halloran as Hawkeye Ethan Suplee as Spiderman and Alanis Morissette as Thanos

Jeff Goldblum, in a marvel movie? Too far fetched.

This trailer is rad! Everything about the 90s was better, so this would have made for a better Marvel film then the sappy, politically driven, boring Marvel films today. How many chances did the team have to finish off Thanos in Infinity War? Oh that's right, in every single scene, where they were too busy coddling one another to do anything about it. Endgame will be just as pathetic.

And this what if movie is 150% more interesting. Provided it had come out in the 90s.

I can go with Milla Jovovich, but hardly with Tom Cruise or Jean-Claude Van Damme. Other than that, this looks totally misplaced...
