As strange as Marvel's recent teasers haven been, with offbeat remixes of events past, they're nothing compared to the inter-company mashup captured Tuesday afternoon on Hollywood Boulevard.
CBS Los Angeles reports that the Hollywood Walk of Fame, long a hotbed for costumed mayhem, erupted about 5 p.m. as Batgirl struggled with Mr. Incredible in a brawl that drew in a colorful cast of characters. Reporter Suzanne Marques offers play-by-play of the video, shot by a production company that happened to be working nearby:
At the beginning we see Mr. Incredible and Batgirl struggling. Chewbacca tries to break it up. Batgirl scratches Mr. Incredible. Waldo and Freddy Krueger step in. They try to hold back Mr. Incredible, who gets loose, chases Batgirl, throws a punch, kicks her and then flips her onto the sidewalk.
Batgirl, Mr. Incredible, Chewbacca, Waldo, Freddy Krueger -- it's like Disney Infinity, only, well, awful. The costumed cavalcade was reportedly chased off by bystanders.
That sort of conflict is, well, an infinite crisis on Hollywood Boulevard, where in spring 2013, one Spider-Man was arrested for robbery, and another came to blows with two Captain Americas, There was, however, that time Superman saved Wonder Woman, so it's not all bad.
That's a point the Dark Knight attempted to make to Marques -- that there are good guys and bad guys in the mix of costumed characters. However, the best part is, when asked by the reporter what she should call him, he replied in his best Christian Bale growl, "Batman."
