Chinese Movie Theaters Promoting 'Justice League' Use Poster Showing Brutal Death of Marvel Heroes

So this is pretty nuts.

And hilarious.

Hilarious and nuts. On a Tuesday. Don’t ever say that I don’t give you anything.

Reports have been coming in from China that a number of movie theater chains there are using quite a…unique…piece of art to promote the latest DC juggernaut. No, not a clip of Sad Batffleck—rather a mocked-up poster featuring several Marvel characters, freshly slaughtered by their DC counterparts.

According to Reddit it’s not just movie theaters either, but also a video hosting site (‘iQiyi’) doing promo for the movie, as well as the ticketing app of China’s largest cinema chain, Wanda Cinema.

I mean it’s like something out of South Park and I’m in love with it.

Let’s have a look at this thing:


We’ve got Diana, striking her model pose while impaling Logan who prepares to bite off of Henry Cavill’s trouser snake in retaliation.

There’s Batffleck, holding Thor’s head as a trophy to bring home to Alfred.

Also featured is Aquaman, impaling Deadpool on his trident, finally having gotten sick of all the, ‘What’s he gonna do, call in the fish cavalry?’ cracks at his expense.

Aaaaaaand bits of Iron Man strewn across the colourless DC landscape as well as a gigantic Captain America squashed underneath Ezra Miller’s super fast feet.

And as a cherry on the cake we get the hashtag #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty crammed into the corner of the poster, which—well, I dunno what the hell that means or what it’s got to do with this carnage, but sign me the fuck up!
