Next month, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood will add a DC Universe Exhibit, including Suicide Squad sets and props
Set to opening May 24, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood and DC Entertainment will reveal the newest star attraction on the Warner Bros. lot with a new DC Universe exhibit. As part of the newest addition to the Tour, guests will be able to explore authentic Suicide Squad props and costumes, two months prior to the film’s debut in theaters. Highlights of the interactive experience include Harley Quinn (portrayed on-screen by Margot Robbie) in the original jail cell set at Belle Reve prison as well as Batcave props from Ben Affleck’s first outing as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which has garnered more than $854 million to date at the worldwide box office. The exhibit pays homage to the origins of DC Comics, including all seven Super Heroes of the Justice League, exclusively at Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood. This addition follows last summer’s grand opening of the interactive “Stage 48: Script to Screen,” which anchors the three-hour Studio Tour. At the Tour, guests explore the real sets and soundstages where some of the greatest names in entertainment have made history.
“Since 1934, DC Comics has built a legacy of creating the world’s greatest Super Heroes and Super-Villains,” says Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood’s Executive Director, Danny Kahn. “DC Universe: The Exhibit gives you the chance to explore the world of these characters from their first comic book appearance, to our latest feature blockbusters.”
Guests at the DC Universe exhibit will be able to journey into Harley Quinn’s actual cell, lit dramatically and dressed with barbed wire, chain link fencing, iron bars and yellow caution tape. Inside the cell, guests can snap the perfect Belle Reve prisoner selfie.
The DC Universe exhibit also showcases Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice through an interactive experience, paying homage to Superman and Batman. Guests will have the opportunity to get up close to Kryptonite, Superman’s sole weakness. Inserting their hands into a pair of gloves, inside a case holding the element, they will mirror Lex Luthor (played in the film by Jesse Eisenberg) and his kryptonite case. Additionally, guests can use a voice modulator to alter their pitch to imitate Batman’s, just as Alfred (Jeremy Irons) demonstrates in the film. See striking Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman costumes, as well as the authentic costumes of Lois, Clark, Alfred, and Bruce Wayne, original Batcave set pieces, and much more.
