Harry Potter and the Cursed Child continues its successful run at the Palace Theatre in London and has managed to attract some superheroes along the way.
At their most recent showing of the newest Harry Potter iteration, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star Ben Affleck attended with his 10-year-old daughter violet. Affleck happens to be in the area while shooting scenes for the upcoming Justice League, but he didn't attend the event alone.
His Suicide Squad co-star Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) joined up as well. The two were invited backstage to take a picture wit the cast and subsequently posted that on Facebook. The two were also joined by Glee star Darren Criss.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child sold out in record time, even beating the stage phenomenon Hamilton in single day ticket sales with 250,000. The play takes place 19 years after the events of Deathly Hollows, and while some were hopeful that this would not be the last adventure for Harry and company, creator J.K.Rowling believes it will be.
"He goes on a very big journey during these two plays and then, yeah, I think we're done. This is the next generation, you know," Rowling tells Reuters. "So, I'm thrilled to see it realized so beautifully but, no, Harry is done now."0comments
You can read the official description of the play below.
It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children. While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.
