Movie crossovers are strange at the best of times, but some are just downright cuckoo. The later entries here in particular will have you wondering exactly what they’re putting in the water in the offices of film studio executives.
Crossovers take two (or more) characters or properties, then throw them together and watch what happens. Some of them aren’t half bad; Avengers, Batman Vs Superman, The Flintstones Meet The Jetsons and Who Framed Roger Rabbit all qualify to various degrees.
Although you could make the argument Avengers are a property unto themselves, when you consider how many characters appeared in Endgame it’s hard not to see it as a Marvel crossover.
These are typically the exception though, as most either fall flat or are concepts so ridiculous that reception is only positive out of pure surprise the movie isn’t a steaming pile of Gotti. That’s the case for some here, but it doesn’t stop them from being incredibly strange ideas.
Some franchises seemingly can’t resist crossing over again and again and again, so to keep things fresh, appearances are limited to one per franchise.
That still offers a whole host bizarre team-ups that prove that sometimes, nothing is stranger than fiction.
