Spider-Man himself, Tom Holland, replaces Marty McFly while Robert Downey Jr. of IRON MAN enters as Doc Brown.

While we seem to be living in the Age of Reboots, and this DeepFake does give us a good option for this remake, hopefully the BttF Franchise is one that studios won't touch. Deep fakes are becoming more common, so hopefully we can all commit to only using this emerging technology for good, like turning movie remakes into affordable weekend-long fan projects. And, the results are pretty hilarious and spectacular. There have been ones like Jim Carrey in The Shining and Sylvester Stallone in Residence Alone. The scene used is in the highschool throughout 1955 the place Marty and Doc try to determine their plan to get Marty's dad and mom collectively to fall in love. The latest deepfake video may be the best so far and two stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are needed to transform a 1985 BACK TO THE FUTURE scene.

If instead of Holland as McFly you prefer Michael J. Fox as Spider-Man, that's also a thing that exists - really, how could it not be? Downey, then again, doesn't look something like Christopher Lloyd, but it nonetheless feels proper. These films are classics that still hold up to this day, and there's no need to make a new one.

Travel to and from the worst-hit central China region was associated with the initial cases of COVID-19 confirmed overseas . As of Monday , there are more than 70,000 cases of coronavirus in China, with the death toll nearing 1,800 people.

The Holland deepfake works a little better than Downey, Jr.'s, but the effect is jarring nonetheless: If it's been a while since you've watched Back to the Future, it's nearly scary how well it works.

Do you think the RETURN TO THE FUTURE deepfake video was legitimate? Tell us within the feedback under!
