Move over, Joker! Pennywise is the only clown in Batman's rogue gallery that matters in thanks to YouTube user Adeel of Steel's fan-made trailer. The mash-up depicts Bill Skarsgård's Pennywise going up against Zack Snyder's version of the Dark Knight utilizing footage from Snyder's Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice with clips of the demonic clown from Andrea Muschietti's It remake as both get ready to wage war on each other.
The trailer focuses on the psychological effect that Pennywise has on Batman and the scare tactics Stephen King's iconic dancing clown employed in torturing the Losers' Club. The footage highlights Ben Affleck's Batman dealing with nightmarish visions of his parents' death, Gotham City under siege, fighting Superman and more or less being haunted by the evil entity to the point where he dons the Frank Miller-inspired suit he fought Superman with in order to confront Pennywise in the sewers.
Muschietti's It is currently breaking records at the box office, becoming the highest-grossing horror of all time. However, despite the sequel now landing a release date, this is likely the only time we'll be seeing Pennywise go head-to-head with the Batman.
Currently screening in theaters, It is a production of New Line Cinema directed by Andy Muschietti and starring Jaeden Lieberher, Bill Skarsgård, Wyatt Oleff, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Jack Dylan Grazer and Chosen Jacobs.
