‘Batman Vs. Terminator’ Is The Best Animated Fan-Film You’ll See Until Skynet Takes Over [Video]

Batman vs. Terminator
Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond

Ever since the announcement that RoboCop vs. Terminator was getting the deluxe edition treatment it deserves, I’ve been thinking a lot about crossovers, and the more I think, the more I’m fixated on one of the most glaring oversights of ’90s comics. Against all reason, against all logic, we never got Batman vs. Terminator. That’s crazy, right? I mean, we got Batman vs. Predator three times. THREE. And yet, nobody ever sent a robot back in time to take out Bruiser Wayne.

Now, that has been corrected, in the form of a genuinely awesome five-minute animated fan-film from Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond, with music by Noir Deco, and it’s awesome. Check it out below!

 

 

There’s a lot to really like about the details thrown in — I’m like 90% sure that’s Green Arrow and Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid hanging out with John Connor in that three-man strike team, and that tank bears a suspicious/awesome resemblance to the Batman: The Animated Series Batmobile — but I think my favorite bit is how true it is to what we know about Batman. The fakeout of the lingering shots of Batman’s “pistol” and the reveal that it’s a grappling hook, meaning that he won’t even use a gun on the Terminators, warms my bitter Batmanologst heart.

Also, who doesn’t love Batman with a moustache?

There’s a little more detail on the plot over at YouTube, but right now it’s the only thing animator Mitchell Hammond has uploaded. It’s a shame — this might be the only fan-film I’ve ever wanted to see go on for another ten or fifteen minutes.
