‘The Muppet Avengers’ Trailer Mashup

The Muppets Avengers Trailer Mashup The Muppet Avengers Trailer Mashup

There is no question about it, The Muppets have used the most unique approach to film promotion this year. A couple of well-done parody trailers raised awareness by piggybacking on other high-profile films in a clever and fun way.

Well, we didn’t want to miss out on all the fun, so we went out and made our own Muppet parody trailer: The Muppet Avengers.

This one seems almost obvious. In fact, don’t be surprised if The Muppets actually launch a trailer parody of Marvel’s Avengers movie - especially since both films are coming from Disney. With such a large cast and a variety of characters, The Muppets are in certain ways an assembly of heroes on their own. But put that company of puppets with the trailer for The Avengers and you have something else entirely – furry superheroes!

Check out our trailer mashup below and let us know if you think it’s on par with the ones officially released by Disney.

As you can see, we gave each character their own Avenger – just how we did it in the Toy Story 3: Inception trailer (which now has over 3 million views!). It’s amazing how easy it is to match mouth movements when that mouth belongs to an animated or puppet character. They are not exact, but very close.

While it seems obvious to make the Incredible Hulk match up with Kermit the Frog, there just wasn’t enough there. So Kermit is Iron Man, Miss Piggy is Nick Fury and everybody else fills in their respective roles. We left a little surprise at the end for the Incredible Hulk moment.

  1. 5 stars. Amazing work people.

    • This is awesome!!! I made an Avengers Parody Trailer with He-man Thundercats Robocop and G.I.Joe it’s on youtube under Jessewolf1

  2. Genius. Absolute genius.

  3. I’m liking that cool robot puppet driving the car.

    • Sorry, I mean “Muppet”!

  4. Hahaha that was quite awesome… good work

  5. Very nice work!

  6. Cant wait for either movie!

  7. Very nicely done! I like. Can’t wait for the Muppets and the Avengers

  8. Really like this mash-up. I was curious though about what code you used to have the the Toy Story Inception Trailer pop out like lightbox.

    Thanks

    • Tyler,

  9. I love these great job :)

  10. For some reason Miss Piggy doesn’t sound off at all with Samuel L’s voice (to me, anyway).

  11. All I want now is to see Robert Downey Jr and Kermit try to outdo each other as Tony Stark. Seriously.

    • I feel like Downey would pick up Kermit and throw him at a wall.

  12. Dude. That was insanely awesome. Miss Piggy as Nick Fury had me in stitches.

    Well done Mike Eisenberg. Very well done.

    • Haha. Thanks! It just seemed perfect.

  13. Mike, you have too much time on your hands man… And we’re thankful for that, lol. :-D

    • Haha. Thanks, Ken. The fun part is that only took me 3 hours from concept to finish! I’m getting faster and faster every time.

  14. Nice work with the editing, Mike! Very funny!!

  15. Amazing. (this mash-up was WAY better than that “swedes” parody thing).
    The characters were perfectly cast as well (especially Miss Piggy as Nick Fury :D)
    Great job ScreenRant (I’ll definitely recommend this clip to my friends).

    I’m just hoping Disney will make their own Muppets-Avengers-parody-trailer now…

  16. Haha, great job Mike! It’s like the trailers were meant to line up.

  17. Haha don’t really like the muppets but this was funny
