Marvel Stuntmen Recreate Super Smash Bros. in Live-Action

Independent director Micah Moore teamed up with stunt coordinators Ben Aycrigg (Venom, The Punisher, Captain Marvel, Stranger Things), Matt Scheib (Captain America: Civil War, The Vampire Diaries), Alex Hashioka (Avengers: Infinity War, Black Lightning, Godzilla: King of the Monsters) and Tang Nguyen (Hancock, Baywatch) to give fans what they've always wanted: the perfect video game live-action, in minute, encyclopedic detail.

The 3-minute crossover simulates the high-octane battle scenes from Nintendo's popular Super Smash Bros. series and features Aycrigg as Mario, Scheib as Captain Falcon, Hashioka as Link and Nguyen as Ness. In typical Super Smash fashion, the characters duke it out in a four-way battle royale where pretty much anything goes.

Moore, best known on YouTube for his stunt tributes, made careful use of the film's camera angles to depict the fight as it normally looked in the games.

Aycrigg, Scheib and Hashioka have performed stunts for Allegiant, last year's MacGyver, AMC's The Walking Dead and several Marvel properties. Aycrigg, who has worked on next year's Avengers: Endgame and Watchmen reboot, was also Jon Hamm's stunt double in Baby Driver.
