Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD Unite with Supergirl for Dubsmash Domination

The ongoing Dubsmash battle between “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” and “Marvel’s Agent Carter” has provided plenty of entertainment for fans of both ABC shows (and raised over $55,000 for charity to date) — but now Team SHIELD is also looking to bridge the Marvel/DC Comics divide by enlisting “Supergirl” herself, Melissa Benoist, to take part in their video for Round 2.

The CBS star, whose series takes flight on Oct. 26, joins “SHIELD” actors Clark Gregg and Chloe Bennet to sing War’s “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” along with Deadpool and Batman in costume (we’re guessing Ryan Reynolds and Ben Affleck were too busy to show up). The peace offering comes in response to Hayley Atwell and James D’Arcy’s take on The Kinks’ “Lola,” in which they drafted Marvel MVP Stan Lee to get handsy with Lola, the red corvette owned by Gregg’s character, Agent Coulson, in “SHIELD” and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The plea for friendship between the companies comes two weeks after “Batman v. Superman” director Zack Snyder criticized Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” calling the character a “flavor of the week” in comparison with DC’s iconic heroes. “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” star Sebastian Stan then fired back, insisting that the Marvel universe is more than capable of originality because “they’re not trying to mimic a better Christopher Nolan movie.”

At least the small-screen stars of both powerhouse companies are willing to give peace a chance.

Head over to Crowdrise to watch and vote for your favorite video from Round 2 (and donate to charity in the process).

“Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” returns for Season 3 on Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. on ABC; “Supergirl” premieres Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS; and “Marvel’s Agent Carter” will return to ABC in 2016.
