Mr. T and The Hulk!


If you had given the 12-year old me control of a major movie studio, this is the kind of project that I would have been spearheading.  I'd have been ahead of my time though - movie audiences simply weren't conditioned yet for so much raw awesomeness in a single film.  I look at the success of Thor: Ragnarok, with all of its fantastical elements, and think maybe the public is ready now.

...on a very special episode of "The A-Team"...

Can we get a team up of two of the most popular characters ever - Superman and Mickey Mouse?

Mickey said...

This is just too great! I wondered if maybe there would be a cameo by Rocky, and I could actually see the A-Team featured in this as referenced in one of the other posts here today.

Sometimes I recall a Saturday Night Live sketch when the movie ET was popular. It featured Eddie Murphy as Mr. T busting in the door saying that he was looking for his boy E. That's when SNL was still more of a satire and parody, and it was still funny.

Speaking of funny, SNL, and the Hulk, SNL did a sketch featuring the superheroes, and John Belushi was the Hulk. Other heroes were Flash, Antman, and Superman, all at a party. The funny part to me was the Hulk looking for the bathroom, going in and hearing a loud scream. He came out saying, "How was I supposed to know the Invisible Girl was in there?"

If this had been done as a comic book in the mid-1970's, the child-like Hulk would have pounded Mr. T down to the size of Herve Villechez with one punch!

After first muttering: "Hulk pity fool."

Oddly enough, I could see Belushi as Wolverine for a sketch.

About Mr. T: You don't want to make his wife feel rejected about her pierogies.:))LOL

I also want to see Superman and Mickey Mouse.

If I could somehow design my ultimate late-70s to mid-80s pop culture icons of my youth comic book cover, it would somehow involve Rocky, Apollo, Mr T. AND Thunderlips, the Hulk, the Dukes of Hazard, Knight Rider, and Airwolf.

The mystery story behind the scenes would be the Enterprise in their Wrath of Khan digs traveling back in time to the point when Earth made first contact with the original Battlestar Galactica.

If I ever saw that cover...well, I'd probably have a heart attack and die, but boy, would I die happy. =D

@LK: Or, even better, Superman vs. Mighty Mouse!

Lieber Kurtzberg said...

That's not even better. Mickey Mouse and Superman are icons, some of the most recognizable characters in the world.

jack-el said...

How about Mighty Mouse (for Superman) teams with Courageous Cat & Minute Mouse (for Batman & Robin)...

Or, better yet, Mickey Mouse vs. Mighty Mouse?

Rilee Davis said...

Someone needs to find a way to ensure that Mr. T himself sees this.

Somehow.

@Rilee Davis: I pity the fool who volunteers for _that_ job!

Oddly , I'd have done the same movie as a twelve year old back in the 1970's !

Another would have been Barney Fife vs Barney Miller !
