Warner Brothers have just released some proof-of-concept images showing what their Warner Brothers World theme park in Abu Dhabi will look like. Among the images presented are a first look at the Metropolis (Superman) and Gotham City (Batman) lands.
Variety also offers a few details on what else the park will include:
The park, which will open next year, will also include Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, and Dynamite Gulch, themed after the Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera brands; and Warner Bros. Plaza, which will be reminiscent of old Hollywood.
Cartoon Junction is also said to bring together two of the biggest Warner Brothers properties together: Looney Tunes and Scooby-Doo. Since the park will open next year, expect more information about it to come out in the not too distant future.
10 Essential Superman Comics You Need to Read
Superman, the quintessential superhero, seems to get a lot of guff from fans. The world’s most powerful Boy Scout can be a boring character when he’s not handled properly (I’m looking at you Snyder), but when he’s being guided by someone who truly understands him and his emotional complexities, fans should expect an amazing story.
Yeah, Superman can punch his way out of simple problems, but when the audience gets to see him think or deal with personal vulnerabilities we develop a special bond with the character. To follow someone who has to be careful about sneezing in public in case they knock someone over or can’t help his friends move furniture in case it betrays his strength can be extremely interesting.
Superman represents hope and believing in yourself. While it might seem like Superman can do anything, his stories really teach audiences that if they believe in themselves their ability to do good is unlimited. Even the world’s most powerful person has emotional problems, and to see him try to overcome his pain serves as a nice reminder that all of us are strong, no matter how low we may feel in a particular moment.
