What would it look like if Tom Holland and Robert Downey Jr. ever did a “Back to the Future” reboot together? Thankfully, there is a deepfake video to give us an idea, and it’s so weird, it’s scary.
The clip, posted on YouTube, superimposed the faces of Holland and Downey Jr. over the original actors Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, respectively, in a scene at Hill Valley’s High School between Marty and Doc Brown, where Marty meets his mother back when she was a teenager. Fox and Lloyd’s voices can be heard speaking the dialogue coming out of Holland and RDJ’s mouths.
Holland and Downey Jr. have a pseudo father-son relationship in several Marvel movies in which they play Spider-Man and Iron Man, given that Tony Stark is Peter Parker’s mentor.
“Back to the Future” (1985) was directed by Robert Zemeckis and starred Fox as Marty McFly, who accidentally travels back in time from 1985 to 1955, where he meets his future parents and becomes his mother’s love interest. Lloyd played Doc, the inventor of the time machine housed in a DeLorean automobile.
The film grossed over $381 million worldwide and became a cult classic, spawning two sequels, “Back to the Future Part II” and “Back to the Future Park III,” as well as an animated series and an upcoming state musical, set to premiere on Feb. 20.
