DC's Justice League doesn't hit theaters for a few more weeks, but Warner Bros. decided to give the superheroes the day off to celebrate Day of the Dead in a new set of posters by artist Orlando Arocena.
If you're unfamiliar, Day of the Dead, aka Dia de Los Muertos, is a Mexican holiday celebrated over several days, beginning with Halloween and ending today. The celebration is meant as a time for families to gather to remember and pray for those they've lost.
Arocena and Poster Posse worked with Warner Bros. to release these stunning posters, and the influence of the holiday is clearly visible in the set -- with skulls and colorful designs painted on each Justice League member.
Aquaman's symbol actually fits into the theme:
The posters were shared along with the following caption on Poster Posse's Facebook page:
"We are honored and thrilled to share our new collaboration with Warner Bros. Cine - Latino with stunning new art by Poster Posse Pro Orlando Arocena- Mexifunk Illustrator for the movie we are dying to see"
Can we infer something about the upcoming film from these? Like the Justice League paying homage to those who have died *cough* Superman? Or maybe they'll just be suffering another loss in the near future? Whatever it may mean, they're certainly going above and beyond for Dia de Los Muertos this year:
We're assuming that all of the members of the Justice League will make it through the latest film (especially since a few of them have more upcoming solo movies), but if not, we'll be sure to say a prayer for them next time Dia de Los Muertos rolls around.
