Space Jam 2 leaks have hit the net offering the film will include Joker, The Mask, Pennywise and potentially more properties from the Warner Bros. vast universe of films.
An Instagram page has posted a pair of images, said to be from LeBron James’ Space Jam 2, that include what may be the Jared Leto Joker (though possibly played by a different actor or a different version?), Pennywise the Clown from the recent IT movies, and a look at what may be Jim Carrey as The Mask, playing the ref for the big game in the flick.
Worth a mention is that all three characters share in common that they are all basically clowns and villains.
Redditors also offer Space Jam 2 will feature properties from other Warner Bros. films including Harry Potter, Wizard of Oz and even The Matrix.
“This is true. Mad Max characters, Clockwork Orange, Joker, Pennywise, Penguin, Wicked Witch of West, Agent Smith are all in it,” claims a Redditor.
So, essentially, similar to LEGO Batman, Space Jam 2 is a “WBverse” flick that will incorporate various characters and cameos from all the WB movies.
Update: Footage has leaked online.
