Hi everyone! I’m a filmmaker myself and I am currently putting together my own nonprofit film based on the MCU heroes The Avengers! This is not a part of Marvel Studios but rather my own making. No money will be made from this. It is a private film done solely for fun. The film will be a crossover between Avengers Age of Ultron and West Side Story with the title Avengers: West Side War. Unlike the Marvel Multiverse, West Side Story takes place in the same universe as The Avengers. In this film, the actual events of West Side Story lead up to the plot of Avengers West Side War! Here is the synopsis of the film.
Several years after the events of West Side Story, the Jets and the Sharks have buried their rivalry and have become known as one gang known as the West Side Friends in order to sound less hostile and less intimidating. Several members of both sides have since passed away from illness, old age, etc. four members remain including Maria, Anita, John(previously known as Baby John) and Velma. One week after Steve Rogers/Captain America exposed SHIELD for being an anti-freedom terrorist organization known as Hydra, the West Side Friends, now old, elderly and on their death beds are watching the news discovering that Baron Strucker has been illegally experimenting on humans using a regenerating agent fused with the super soldier serum. Realizing they have a second chance at life again gaining immortality, Maria convinces the others to go to Sokovia with her and get injected with the serum. Now in Sokovia, the West Side Friends are placed in chambers where each of them are injected with the serum. This catches the attention of The Avengers. Where the opening battle ensues. Sometime later, Tony Stark and Bruce Banner attempt to jumpstart their global defense system known as the Ultron program. Meanwhile Anita, John and Velma all successfully regain their strength and youthful appearances looking how they looked over 60 years ago. Maria however has a severe reaction to the serum and is placed in another regeneration chamber in order to stabilize her. Ultron’s origins from the laboratory originate from the serum as well. After suddenly becoming sentient, Ultron views Maria’s mind and everything she experienced during the events of West Side Story as well as all of the chaos the Avengers had caused, realizing humanity is a danger to itself, Ultron takes control over Maria using her body and mind as a host to build several killer robots. It is now up to Tony Stark/Iron Man, Thor, Bruce Banner/Hulk, Steve Rogers/Captain America, Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and Clint Barton/Hawkeye to team up with Anita, Velma and John to hopefully save Maria and destroy Ultron.
If anyone has read this all the way through, I am looking for actors to portray the West Side friends as well as a few different slots. The roles of Tony Stark, Thor, Bruce Banner, Steve Rogers and Natasha Romanoff are already taken. However there are many more roles to fill. The entire film will be shot on the iPhone and edited through iMovie.
