Batman and Superman fans are used to seeing Gotham and Metropolis together on the silver screen – but with a new theme park land they will actually see them in real life – thanks to Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.

Warner Bros. World park will feature an array of areas inspired by Batman’s Gotham, Superman’s Metropolis as well as Hanna Barbera and Looney Tunes.

The theme park has just announced plans for six themed worlds that will make up the attraction.
