“Batman v Superman” and “Hey Arnold!” Get “Grand Theft Auto 5” Remakes [VIDEO]

Batman v Superman trailer remade in Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto V isn’t just a highly entertaining video game, it’s also a playground for fans to create some awesome videos. We’ve already seen the trailer for Straight Outta Compton in GTA form, along with the members of Blink 182 streaking through San Andreas. Now, YouTuber Merfish has used GTA V‘s Rockstar editor feature to recreate the trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the intro for the classic Nickelodeon cartoon Hey Arnold!

The Grand Theft Auto-themed remake of the Batman v Superman trailer casts Michael as Superman/Clark Kent and Trevor as Batman/Bruce Wayne. The animated take on the feud between the two heroes is impressively comparable to the real trailer from beginning to end. Seizing the opportunity that such a remake provides, Merfish lightens up the drama of the original trailer with a few laughable visuals. There’s even an appearance from Wonder Woman just like in the official Batman v Superman trailer, except this time the Amazonian warrior’s outfit might not be quite the right fit for her body type.

In addition to the amusing three-minute remake of Batman v Superman, the GTA V remake of Hey Arnold! emulates the sequence of the show’s original intro while providing a different tone. The humorous interpretation depicts grown-up versions of Arnold and company parading around the neighborhood to the sounds of the cartoon’s opening score. This version however, isn’t really for the kids, and features a more violent ending.

Hit the jump to experience both Batman v Superman and Hey Arnold! remade in GTA fashion.
