The UK capital city has plenty of statues of monarchs, statesmen and social activists, but now superheroes are to join them. Sculptures of DC Comics superheroes Batman and Woman Woman are being erected in London’s Leicester Square next month.
The Justice League members will be part of Scenes in the Square, an installation that will feature eight film character statues in the capital’s home of movie premieres.
Created in a partnership between Heart of London Business Alliance, Westminster City Council and film studios, the movie sculptures will feature in and around the square from building and benches to gardens.
Aside from Batman and Wonder Woman, the other statues are of Laurel and Hardy, Bugs Bunny, Singin’ In The Rain’s Gene Kelly, Mary Poppins, Mr Bean and Paddington.
The statues aim to bring to life some of the public’s most-loved movie moments, offering a new attraction similar to Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
