It often feels like Disney owns every pop culture property, but as every comic book fan who has dreamed of seeing Marvel and DC heroes team up on the big screen knows, even the Mouse House can’t make certain things happen. One powerhouse does have access to just about any character it wants, though – Funko. The makers of the popular Pop! figures have released them for just about every movie, TV show, video game, and everything else you can think of. And now they’re planning to bring them all to theaters in a massive crossover film that won’t just see Marvel and DC superheroes working together, it will bring along characters from Star Wars, Care Bears, and a whole lot more.
Writer Daniel Richtman reports Warner Bros. Animation is currently developing a combination live-action/cartoon Funko film in hopes of capturing the same success they had with The LEGO Movie, which also brought together numerous characters from a wide-range of properties. It sounds like the Funko movie could go even bigger though, including Darth Vader, Deadpool, Hellboy, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Hello Kitty, the Care Bears, and My Little Pony. Yeah. As crazy and impossible as this all sounds, SlashFilm has confirmed the movie is really happening, which means Deadpool could fight Darth Vader while Wonder Woman works with Harley Quinn who is riding a My Little Pony.
Some characters already confirmed for the Funko movie: Darth Vader, Deadpool, Hellboy, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Care Bears, My Little Pony.

While nothing is known about a possible plot, a photo shared by Richtman indicates production could begin this year. No matter when it happens or what the story is like though, we’re pretty sure of one thing – Funko will release some new figures when it comes out.
