Jimmy Kimmel has the Bridget Jones–Batman v Superman mashup you never knew you needed to see

The superhero extravaganza Batman v Superman was a monster hit at the box office this past weekend, but Jimmy Kimmel Live came up with a way to expand its reach beyond its action-loving fan base.

In any case, if Batman & Superman Versus Bridget Jones ever actually made it to the theater, I'd buy a ticket. Watch the surprisingly seamless trailer below. Peter Weber
