Captain America holds The Mandalorian’s Grogu, aka Baby Yoda, in a delightful piece of AI-generated Marvel and Star Wars crossover art.
Captain America holds The Mandalorian‘s Baby Yoda in a delightful piece of AI-generated Marvel and Star Wars crossover art. Chris Evans brought the character of Steve Rogers, a skinny kid from Brooklyn, to life in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, which chronicled his transformation into the titular super-soldier. Evans’ most recent appearance as Cap came in Avengers: Endgamewhich, during its final moments, saw an old Steve Rogers pass his vibranium shield onto Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson, effectively ordaining him the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Captain America of the future.
Created by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni for the Star Wars spinoff series The Mandalorian, Grogu is an infant member of the same unnamed species as Yoda. Though he is known by many nicknames in-universe, including The Child, The Kid, and The Asset, Grogu is colloquially and affectionally referred to as Baby Yoda by fans. Since his surprise introduction at the end of The Mandalorian season 1 premiere, Grogu’s backstory has been shrouded in mystery, though beloved nonetheless for his incredible cuteness and heartwarming father-son bond with Mandalorian bounty hunter Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal).
Now, a new piece of AI-generated art imagines Grogu being held not by Din Djarin as fans are used to seeing, but in the arms of Captain America. The art was created by the Dall-E mini program, which uses artificial intelligence to generate a grid of images based on a given prompt. In this case, “Captain America holding baby yoda“resulted in a delightful array of images with varying degrees of distortion. Check out the images below:
While Steve Rogers and Grogu lose some of their charm in these images due to their faces being warped and distorted, this has been a hallmark of the Dall-E mini meme trend. Besides, the AI did manage to create a somewhat believable imagination of what this type of Marvel and Star Wars crossover might look like on a comics panel, despite the double vibranium shields. A few of the images curiously do not feature Grogu at all and in another, he is hilariously stuck inside Captain America’s shield.
With Star Wars and the MCU being two of the biggest film franchises of all time now under the corporate umbrella at Walt Disney, fans have been clamoring for a crossover between the two. Though that probably won’t happen in live-action anytime soon, this AI-generated art proves there is some potential for a crossover, perhaps in an animated or comics format. Until then, Grogu can be seen in The Mandalorian season 3 premiering in February 2023, while a fourth Captain America movie is also in development at Marvel Studios.
