Well, it’s about that time, my friends, for me to ‘nerd out’ for another Monday Night Match-up, DC vs Marvel style once more. So far you have voted via social media that Oliver Queen would take the crown versus Hawkeye. You voted that Captain America would beat Batman. Thor was voted to beat out Superman. Deathstroke killedThe Winter Soldier. Sara beat Natasha by the mere single digits. Atom squashed Ant-Man in the final tally. Ghost Rider blazed past John Constantine for the win. Wonder Woman came out on top with a victory over Lady Sif. Deathstroke dominated once again against Frank Castle. Dare Devil pulled ahead of Green Arrow in a no-weapons melee match. Thor recently squashed the almighty Wonder Woman in an extremely close match.
With the new trailers of Justice League hot off the press, I began thinking of Batman and the villains of the past. I also recently saw teaser photos for Deadpool 2. So the idea of an epic battle between a hero and a villain began spinning in my head. What if Colossus were to face off with Bane?
Tom Hardy wow’d audiences with his appearance in The Dark Knight Rises as the iconic Batman villain, Bane. Stefan Kapicic has recently made his mark in the superhero universe in the box office winning film Deadpool as Marvel’s ‘Colossus’. Both actors have done a phenomenal job in their various roles, and I absolutely love what they each have brought to the screen as their respective characters.
You know the drill, my fellow nerd-lings! If these two were to face off against each other, melee style, who would win? It’s a DC vs Marvel Match-up!
