Cool Videos: Batman battles Deadpool in this great live action fight scene

Jun. 28, 2013by: Alex Maidy

The good folks at Machinima started a nice series of live action fight scenes back in May with Superman fighting Thor. While the production values were good, the video didn't really do much for me. But, this new video is absolutely awesome.

This time, the Marvel vs DC battle is between Batman and Deadpool. While we have all been dying for Deadpool to be handled correctly (ahem, X-MEN ORIGINS), this is the closest I have seen featuring live action. The video starts with the Merc with the Mouth ogling a very buxom Catwoman before The Dark Knight busts in to save the day. While the fight itself is decent, it is hearing Deadpool's dialogue that makes this so great.

This is a great little video and gives me hope that once the Deadpool movie finally happens that we will be getting the character as well done as this.

The thing about Christian Bale though is the depth and gravitas he brought to BRUCE WAYNE.

And these videos are awesome.

Batman from the Animated Series is THE definitive Batman, IE: Conroy is THE definitive Batman voice.

Why do some fanboys get wet between the legs over a guy in a cheap suit doing a kevin conroy imitation. Some people are stuck on that one interpretation (which is an animated show and only works in animation). For live action, I look for more creativity when it comes to playing Batman than just finding someone who can do the best kevin conroy impression.

Kevin Conroy is the definitive Batman voice and Christian Bale's interpretation was laughably bad.

Conroy was okay at best. He just got really famous because BTAS was so great. I much prefered Christian Bale's interpretation. A lot more intense and threatening.

Bale's Batman sounded like a Power Ranger villain. It was just way too ridiculous and over the top, too cartoonish.

Conroy's voice is the voice I hear whenever I read the Batman comics. I also thought Jeremy Sisto, Peter Weller, & Michael Keaton all had a great & unique Batman voice.

Idk if you've seen these vs. series before, but they really aren't about the character's personality or voice. Though they often do have said personality and voice in it, this is really more about two characters having a death match and seeing who comes out on top.

How is it that someone with such a likely small budget and likely limited resources made Batman look and sound so much than Nolan did. This guy should be making the next Batseries, give Nolan the boot in every capacity, including Producer.

Well made video, pretty much exactly what i would want Deadpool to look like in his own movie. Learnt over the last few days that a lot of so called Deadpool fans don't know the character at all. The only thing i don't like about this is there's no way Batman could beat Deadpool in a fight.

Well he didn't really beat him, he subdued him so that he could get away. That's kind of the only way you can deal with an immortal.

That was a bunch of fun then some. God I love the Internet. Honestly it's a wonder why movie exec's don't watch stuff like and also read the comments before they start their projects. He'll, I'd even suggest checking out the costumes the porn movies like to use in their superhero based movies. The Wonder Woman one was more than pretty good...though I'm in the she should be wearing pants' camp.

OK, not bad guys...not bad...

--quality control was pretty darn good. And usually these fan films are edited pretty slow and not as pro as could be to get the timing right and keep the viewer in the scene, but this was cut and edited pretty damn good too. All around good stuff--good work guys:)

Well Batman looked better than the one in the Nolan movies, so there's that. But then they had to make him win agaisn't Deadpool...as if that would actually go down like that. Bats should have died. Like he did against Wolverine in one of the previous videos.

Yeah but...

Batman does not kill. All the gadgets he has and he couldn't just freeze him. The ending was awesome though.

The voice....

That was effing awesome, except for Deadpool's voice. It was just a bit high pitch & kinda annoying.

Deadpool and Catwoman looked great to begin with, then the Burton-mobile rolled in, Batman stepped out and sounded like Conroy, and I was completely sold. Really like Bat in the Sun's stuff, check out some of their earlier work: [link]

Kudos Machinima!

Given the production value, this video was damn good! Whoever was portraying Deadpool was excellent and hilarious! Oh and that Kevin Conroy voice-alike for Bats: WOW!
Too bad this won't get studio executives off their hesitant asses and give us the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool flick that we all deserve. At least we have bits like this to satiate our hunger.

I really liked the Kevin Conroy mimic voice for Bats, very well done. Deadpool was pretty fun, as he should be. He's supposed to be a loudmouth. I liked that he had a spray bottle with him. It was enjoyable though it is Marvel vs DC, but I guess Deadpool covered that with Deathstroke. The girl playing Catwoman was boring though, no sexy voice movement. Made her seem like a cosplay more than acting in a short. Oh well.

Yeah - he's too much of a gimmick. Wise-cracking, fourth-wall breaking guy who can't die. There's nothing really there to get behind. Occasionally, he's good when he pops up in a comic (like he does with the Thunderbolts) but he can't carry his own title. I don't understand why people go so nuts for him.

Deadpool has and IS carrying his own title. You clearly havent read any of them because his solos have found plenty of depth especially Cable and Deadpool and Joe Kelly's Deadpool series, plus Uncanny X-Force.

Batman didn't kill in this video. In fact, he was counting on Deadpool not dying. He's still gonna incapacitate him though with the Michael Keaton Batman batmobile (who is a Batman that didn't have a lot of problems killing).

I was getting ready to ask the same question. Between the video game trailer and this video, Deadpool is kind of a d-bag. Or maybe it's just the voice that's annoying me. I was expecting a deeper one but I keep getting this high whiny voice.

Hes known as the "Merc with a Mouth" All he does is talk talk talk and talk. And when you read his comics, that kind of voice is the voice you picture him as having. The kind you just wanna punch.

I dunno, I just think his jokes would be funnier if done with a deeper or scruffy voice. ...But I guess the fans would know.

Good stuff.

I am a big fan of Deadpool, but I think what this video really proves is that a character that talks this much only works on the page or in short bursts such as this. Can you imagine 90 minutes of non-stop Twitter jokes and cat puns? This short film is awesome and totally makes Deadpool endearing, but a full-length movie that centers soley on him would be BEYOND annoying.
