Avengers Meets My Hero Academia In Infinity War Crossover

Avengers vs. My Hero Academia is the movie you never knew you needed.


In case you didn't think Avengers: Infinity War has enough superheroes, even though it contains literally every Marvel Cinematic Universe hero (except possibly Hawkeye; sorry Hawkeye), you're in luck. My Hero Academia, which just debuted its third season on Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Hulu, is teaming up with the MCU movie for a crossover trailer.

The collaboration was announced on Twitter, where the official Japanese Avengers account posted a link to a website featuring comparisons between My Hero Academia characters and members of the Avengers team. Toho Animation, which produces My Hero Academia, also uploaded a reworked version of the Infinity War trailer with the anime's characters built in, which you can watch below.

The collaboration's website shows off the parallels between the two superhero worlds. For example, Midoriya is compared to Captain America, while Ochaco steps in as Black Widow. The site also contains My Hero Academia's take on the Infinity War poster, with Shigaraki playing the role of Thanos. Thus far, this is as far as the collaboration between the two projects goes--it appears to be a promotional campaign for Avengers: Infinity War.

The third season of My Hero Academia is airing now, and you can check out GameSpot's comprehensive coverage of Avengers: Infinity War, from which characters will survive to where the heck Hawkeye is. The movie hits theaters on April 27.
