Crossovers are something pretty much everyone has encountered now, especially with the Marvel Cinematic Universe cashing in massively through the shared universe the characters hold. But here we are talking about two different franchise crossing over. Some crossovers have seen success while others are simply failures. This is because when merging two separate properties you have to ensure both fanbases are pleased with the combination and that the mix-up of characters work. Here we will look at five potential crossovers that if done correctly could result in massive gain in the box office takings.
Given that Precure is a magical girl anime franchise that sees heroine using magical powers to transform and fight the forces of evil, it is safe to say it is a franchise with many powerful punching and strong striking battle for audiences to enjoy. With over 800 episodes and and dozens of movies, it is safe to say there have been some spectacular fights for audiences to enjoy. So, we are going to look at the first 5 in our top 10 of the best battles in Precure and what made them stand out. These battle will be restricted to a single Cure in the battle or taking the primary stance in the battle, and we will also be looking at the battle from the movies, not just from the anime series. Group battles will be covered in a later instalment.
Digimon has been around almost as long as Pokémon and have always been seen as a rival franchises, given that both utilise characters using fantastical beasts and monster in battle. Unlike Pokémon, Digimon has always followed a format of reinventing itself and bringing audiences new ideas and aspects to the Digital Monster based series. Some of these series have been received well by fans, others not so much (we are talking about you Applimon).
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a major success by smashing through box-office records around the world, with Avengers: Endgame cultivating multiple storylines and converging them for one epic end of a saga. However, there is a major issue in society today that Marvel not only included in Avengers: Endgame, but they even made a joke of the entire problem, male depression. This brings me to the character that was used to make the jokes and the actor who I would assume either did not care what was being done or was unaware of him making a joke of a serious problem.
In the last decade the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a force more powerful than the Infinity Stones themselves. They have smashed box office records and created perhaps the most complex film franchise in history. But Marvel comic book readers have been waiting this whole time for some of the missing heroes to assemble within the MCU. The most prominent of these characters being the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Now Disney have purchased 20th Century Fox, it has opened the doors for these characters to finally arrive and join the other heroes and villains on the big screen.
2019 had some pretty epic and highly anticipated films all come out one after another, and for many Detective Pikachu was a surprise box office hit. Now that is not me saying I was expecting the film to flop, but the general consensus was concerned to say the least. As historically any films adapted from video games tend to meet a massive backlash that would make even the toughest game avatar fall to a one hit KO. But, Detective Pikachu did the unthinkable and created a movie that pretty much everyone who has seen it has enjoyed.
