WWE News: New Justice League trailer features WWE stars as superheroes
What's the story?
One of the biggest movies of the year, ‘Justice League’ will be hitting theatres on 17th November and the promotion of the film is certainly getting bigger with tie-ups with a number of organisations.
The WWE is not far behind in terms of this and one of the official handles from the movie tweeted a brilliant mash-up featuring the WWE stars and the superheroes who will be fighting it out on the big screen.
In case you didn't know...
Justice League features Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot and a number of other stars as they take up the roles of Batman, Aquaman and Wonder Woman respectively.
The movie will also see the Flash and Cyborg in action while there should be a glimpse of Superman (Henry Cavill) in some capacity.
The heart of the matter
With the movie just a week away, the tweet showcases some of the current WWE superstars being compared to the heroes on the screen.
Finn Balor is shown as Batman/Bruce Wayne thanks to his demon persona while Dean Ambrose is compared to Cyborg.
Kalisto is seen as the Flash, possibly due to his speed in the ring but a couple of comparisons did stand out.
Sasha Banks was Wonder Woman in the promo and Roman Reigns actually does look like Aquaman and even had the line “This is my yard” being featured and the promo video ends with a “Believe that”.
Justice League should be looking to break a number of box office records and even though Marvel had come out with Thor: Ragnarok a week ago, the combination of the superheroes should be a move for all to see come 17th November.
After the dud that was Batman vs. Superman, DC Comics would be hoping for a better box office total and reaction from Justice League. They did get things right with Wonder Woman and hopefully, having the team of stars can replicate the success of The Avengers to an extent.
Looking back at the comparisons, the ones with Banks and Reigns are actually spot on, however, if we were going to include Ambrose, there should have been some room for Seth Rollins but I guess that’s asking for too much.
There still is no sign of who Superman could be but maybe that role could be kept aside for Brock Lesnar, just because he is a powerhouse and doesn’t always come on the televised shows regularly.
