Watch Batman Fight The Terminator In A Stop-Motion Short Film, Because It’s Friday And You Deserve Something Nice

Batman vs. Terminator, by Captain McKay


For some reason, everyone seems to be buzzing this week about Batman fighting people in the movies – even more so than usual, I mean. If that’s the kind of story that’s sparked your interest today, then friend, you could do a lot worse than spending the next six minutes watching Batman vs. Terminator, a stop-motion fan-film in which the Dark Knight returns in a future dominated by Skynet and its killer robots.

Produced by YouTuber Captain McKay – who I think we can assume was bitten by a radioactive McKay at some point in the past – the project uses Mezco‘s Dark Knight Returns Batman figure and NECA‘s Terminator figure, and the results are pretty amazing. Give it a watch!

There’s a lot to like about what McKay is doing here – I’m particularly fond of Batman reflexively trying to slug a Terminator in the gut before he remembers that they’re killer robots – but I think my favorite might be the music. Blending the Terminator theme with tunes lifted from the Batman NES and Game Boy games is a great way to get that techno sound in there while staying true to both characters, and it’s a really thoughtful touch that I like even more than explosive batarangs.

Even though we got Batman vs. Predator a full three times — four if you count the one that has Superman and the xenomorphs from Aliens in it — we somehow never got Batman vs. Terminator in the comics. This is, however, not the first time that Batman and the Terminator have crossed paths in the world of fan-films. Back in 2014, Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond did a pretty fantastic animated short with the same premise.
