Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently pleaded fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and DC Extended Universe to end their rivalry. Gunn's pleas have apparently fallen on deaf ears, as a fan-made poster depicting Justice League members killing Marvel heroes was briefly used in lieu of official marketing material at some Chinese cinemas.
The poster, first reported by Express, features Superman crushing Ant-Man in his fist, Flash stepping on Captain America's head, Batman holding Thor's severed head, Wolverine on his knees with multiple stabwounds (good luck with that one, bub), Deadpool on Aquaman's quindent and a dismembered Iron Man strewn about in a gruesome fan-made doctoring of an official Justice League poster.
The poster was being used in many Chinese cinemas, as well as on a video hosting site, iQiyi, and ticket sales app Wanda Cinema. The poster has been removed from the iQiyi site and reports indicate cinema chains have started pulling the poster down from their locations.
In theaters now, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Ciarán Hinds as Steppenwolf, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon.
