HBO / Marvel 1910 TV Series Opening

Posted by LiveFor on April 27, 2010

This is very cool.

What if… HBO created a TV show with the Marvel characters (cast as we know them) set 100 years ago? Using footage of actors such as Hugh Jackman, Tobey Maguire, Robert Downey Jr and many more from period piece movies, this video is an LXG-style mock-up of a concept I’ve had for a while. I’ve even included an opening scene for added effect.

Footage from: Ghost Rider, Daredevil, Elektra, Seabiscuit Marie Antoinette, Shakespeare In Love, Iron Man, The Illusionist, The Incredible Hulk, Australia, HBO Rome and the trailers for Sherlock Holmes, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Sorcercer’s Apprentice.

*Music by Immediiate Music – ‘Slay The Dragon’
*Notes: Everytime I see a CBM actor in a turn-of-the-century; Victorian Era; Period piece movie, I think ‘wouldn’t it be cool to put them into a trailer or TV show where they’re all humble heroes back then?’ Well, this vid is designed to do just that. Being thoughtful to the background of each shot, I used another smorgasbord of resources to offer another ‘alternative vision’ to this fun genre.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!
