Tin Man as Ultron? Avengers meet 'Wizard of Oz' in fan tribute video

Dorothy and her pals get the Marvel superhero treatment in the impressive fan-made video "Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man." Plus, Quicksilver as a Winged Monkey is pretty amazing.

We're not in Kansas anymore, but at least some of the characters walking the yellow brick road have superpowers.

In "Avengers of Oz: Age of Tin Man," we meet a new kind of Marvel Avengers on their way to meet the wizard.

Created by visual-effects artist and YouTube user Darren Wallace, the video, posted Friday, features Tin Man recast as Ultron, Cowardly Lion as Thor, the Scarecrow as Captain America and Dorothy as the Black Widow.

The video warns at the beginning that "the following makes no sense," but casting is perfect. After all, Thor does have an impressive mane and the Tin Man was one of the first cinematic robots, though we're pretty sure Captain America has a brain.

The creepy Ultron voice-over gives Oz an eerie sinister undertone. And when the Tin Man as Ultron flashes those creepy red glowing eyes, it's easy to picture something more evil than the Wicked Witch giving the citizens of Oz something to be afraid of.

Speaking of witches, the Scarlet Witch makes an appearance as, yes you guessed it, the green-skinned Wicked Witch, alongside Quicksilver as a Winged Monkey complete with a jaunty little hat.

The video effects are so impressive it almost feels like this could be a real movie. Here's hoping Hollywood hires Wallace to make the ultimate crossover film. Who would you cast in the movie?
