As a long-time Disney aficionado and old-school gamer, believe me when I say that the recent Nintendo Direct had me on the edge of my seat. And then it happened—the announcement of a Marvel vs. Capcom collection for the Nintendo Switch. My excitement didn’t just tip me off my chair; it gave me a brilliant idea: Disney should definitely consider making a Marvel vs. Capcom movie!

Combining the excitement of superheroes with the surge in popularity of video game adaptations seems like a match made in entertainment heaven. Picture this: a movie that takes audiences inside the Marvel vs. Capcom video game universe. Imagine beloved characters like Iron Man and Thanos making a grand return, existing in a digital multiverse. This setup could feature a storyline where Ultron survives as a fragment of code in the Capcom universe, teaming up with notorious villains like M. Bison from Street Fighter.

This epic tale could dip into both the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) and the dynamic realms of Capcom. The Avengers might find themselves in the Capcom universe, initially overpowered. Desperate times call for desperate measures—what if they recreated Iron Man and even Thanos virtually? Just think of the sheer thrill of watching Ryu face off against Thor or Spider-Man taking on Strider. It’s the kind of high-stakes, high-octane crossover that would surely captivate audiences worldwide.

Moreover, pulling off a Marvel vs. Capcom movie is not out of reach for Disney. With Marvel’s long-standing collaboration with Sony, utilizing characters from both franchises is a real possibility. The idea seems not only plausible but also potentially lucrative, edging towards billion-dollar box office revenues if done right. So, why hasn’t Disney pounced on this idea yet?

Disney has only dipped its toes in the vast ocean of video game adaptations with films like “Tron” and “Wreck-It Ralph”. While they were hits in their own rights, the Marvel vs. Capcom concept could very well be their gold mine in this genre. Come on, Disney—this is a billion-dollar idea just waiting to be realized!
