Another playground conversation hits the Silver Screen

One of the most common topics of conversation among children between the ages of 5 and 12 is the outcome of hypothetical battles between unrelated fictitious characters. We've all heard these conversations between children that we know. Many of us have had these conversations with children, or as children. They usually go something like this:

Tommy: Who would win if Character X fought Character Y?
Billy: Character Y would kick his butt.
Tommy: Nuh-uh
Billy: Uh-huh

Recently, film-makers have been turning these deep discussions into movies. The latest example is Alien vs. Predator. A film that pits Character X, who we know from its exploits with Sigourney Weaver which included popping out of her crew-mate's chest at dinner, against Character Y, who battled Governors Schwarzenneger and Ventura in the Jungle in 1987.
Last year, film-makers showed us who would win if Character X fought Character Y in Freddy Vs. Jason.

What's next?
Character X vs. Character Y?
Character X vs. Character Y?
Character X vs. Character Y?
Character X vs. Character Y?

Does anybody else have any great movie ideas like these?
