Justice League is in theaters now with Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg teaming up to save the world from the threat of Steppenwolf. But what if those heroes hadn't been available or simply didn't want to step up? It's hard to imagine who could have filled their heroic shoes.
Fortunately, we don't have to imagine. The people over at Funny or Die have put together a Justice League parody that imagines what the latest installment of the DC Extended Universe might look like with a B-team of characters. You can check it out above.
In the video, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) recruits a team that is, while far more colorful, may be a little questionable when it comes to their heroic prowess. Barb Wire (Pamela Anderson) gets recruited in place of Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman, Howard the Duck (a Marvel character who also appeared in the Amalgam Comics shared DC/Marvel universe) for Aquaman, Steel (Shaquille O'Neal) for Cyborg, and Damon Wayans' Blankman for The Flash. The result is a hilarious inept-seeming team that might be long on laughs but looks like they will come up short when it comes to saving the world.
And it looks like Bruce knows that. At the end of the video it's revealed that there are a lot of B-list heroes there to help, including the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jim Carrey's The Mask, Mario and Luigi, some Power Rangers, and even Underdog. When JK Simmons' Commissioner Gordon asks how many heroes are there, Batman tells him "not enough".
While this b-list Justice League looks like a lot of fun -- especially with all the nods to 80s and 90s superhero movies -- the bigger heroes were available, so the world is in the very capable hands and fans are heading to the theaters to see how they fare. The film is expected to make around $93.5 million in its opening weekend.
