Check out ICC's own 'Justice League'
Justice League is a famous comic team of superheroes from DC Comics, which includes Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Flash and even Wonder Woman. Fans have often wondered if cricketers would fit into these superheroes' character, who would be who.
Cricketers are no less than real-life superheroes, as their extraordinary cricketing abilities help their sides to attain glory, besides entertaining the fans. As a result, they are often compared to some of the famous comic superheroes.
While Marvel's Avengers is already a renowned superhero team, DC's Justice League somewhat falls on the same lines. Meanwhile, fans have often wondered who would fit in which role of the superheroes, be it Avengers or Justice League.
On Thursday, the International Cricket Council took to its social media handle to create its own version of the Justice League. The official poster of the Justice League was replaced by the face of the cricketers, as ICC captioned it, "Unite the League 💪#SnyderCut".
In the poster, Windies all-rounder Kieron Pollard featured as Cyborg, followed by English all-rounder Ben Stokes as Batman, Pakistani batsman Babar Azam as Flash and New Zealand batsman Kane Williamson as Superman. Indian skipper Virat Kohli was featured as Aquaman, while Australian woman cricketer Ellyse Perry was portrayed as the Wonder Woman.
The setup was all a means to promote the upcoming Justice League movie, produced by Warner Brothers. It is a soft reboot of the 2017 movie, with Zack Snyder directing it and renamed Zack Snyder's Justice League, released on Thursday, globally.
