2016 is shaping up to be quite the year for superhero movies, meaning it’s going to be quite the year for GTA V trailer recreations using the Rockstar Editor. Recently, quite a few trailers of superhero blockbusters have been remade in GTA V by some genius YouTubers. Among them, the Captain America: Civil War from Merfish, who also made "Hey Arnold(Trevor)" and other amazing video works before, and the Suicide Squad from Shelby GR stood out. We provide both their GTA 5 movie trailers below, hope you guys enjoy them.
Captain America: Civil War Official Trailer - Recreated in GTA V
While not an actual Avengers title, the next installment in Captain America’s personal series is bringing the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe on board, not to mention adding some never before seen characters too. Iron Man’s fight with Cap might be the biggest focus but the large scale hoe-down between the best known faces of Marvel is plenty to be excited about.
With the SuperBowl, that marketing fair masquerading as some sort of sport event, not far behind us the new trailers are still fresh in everyone’s minds. Merfish took his chance and remade the first Civil War trailer in GTA V
GTA V’s Michael makes a surprisingly good Tony Stark but that’s where the genuine similarities end. All the rest of the characters are complete misfits. Cap is Trevor, a Canadian, Black Widow is an elderly lady and Franklin really doesn’t fit Falcon’s strong facial features.
Suicide Squad Official Trailer - Recreated in GTA V
While this is hardly the only GTA V recreation of the Suicide Squad trailer, it is among the best of them. As things usually go with these the recreation is faithful to the original scene for scene. The outfits are pretty authentic, as are the set pieces – all done without mods as far as we can tell. That’s quite the seal of quality there since most Rockstar Editor recreations rely on custom assets to authentically recreate characters, vehicles or other props.
Despite being worlds apart on first glance, GTA V and Suicide Squad are pretty similar when we get down to it. A group of horrible people team up against even worse people, forcing the audience into identifying and empathizing with murderous insane psychopaths. Did we get that right?
What other upcoming big-budget superhero flick would you like to see get the GTA V treatment?
