Always wanted to see Gotham City and Metropolis but found it was too obscured by dark lighting and a desaturated color scheme in Batman v. Superman or Man of Steel? Well you’re in luck, because Warner Bros. World, the $1 billion theme park planned by Warner Bros.

Sometimes there’s more, sometimes it’s less, but at best we’re talking about millions if not billions in property damage and countless ruined days for ordinary civilians unlucky enough to live in a superpowered universe. While the superheroes get to return to Asgard or hole up in their secret Batcaves or whatever it is they do, these folks are left to sweep up the dust.
