Holy waxworks, Batman! The Justice League: A Call for Heroes has arrived at Madame Tussauds Sydney. Reincarnated in their superhero guises, Ezra Miller is The Flash, Gal Gadot is Wonderwoman, Ben Affleck is a super-hot Batman and Henry Caville is not only Superman, but also the first ever moving waxwork!
The moment you enter the atrium preceding the main experience, you are instantly transported into the heart of Metropolis by way of Gotham City. A breaking news announcement is interrupted by Batman himself calling for heroes to help the Justice League defeat the evil forces at play within Lex Luthor’s Lexcorp enterprise.
With mission pads plotted throughout the exhibit, the wholly immersive and interactive journey begins with Flash ‘The Flash’ Gordon, where fans are tasked with running literally like lightning. The mood is dark, moody and mysterious perfecting a setting that is alive with intrigue and superheroic possibilities. Strike Wonderwoman’s iconic pose and watch the glass shatter on the window opposite.
The debris of technological destruction leads you to Superman, who you’ll help lift a helicopter back into the sky as Madame Tussaud’s heralds its first ever moving waxwork. This is by far one of the coolest features of the experience and at the launch alone attracted numerous attempts to stand shoulder to caped shoulder with Henry Caville as the Man of Steel in a show of strength (literally!).
My three year old Batman fan was thrilled to meet his idol in real life; he was so star struck he could barely keep it together to pose for a photograph with the Bruce Wayne alter-ego. Generate the bat beacon into the skies of Gotham and watch the waxwork figure of Batman himself become illuminated in all its hunky, dark and smouldering glory.
Issues of The Daily Planet newspaper, where Clark Kent spends his human days with Miss Lois Lane feature on a newsstand boasting headline after headline about the caped crusader. So much detail has gone into this experience and the little kids and big kids are lapping it up! After experiencing it for myself I urge you, after you read all about it, go visit the Justice League at Madame Tussauds Sydney for yourself.
