DC Comics, Superman trolled for showing Kashmir as ‘Disputed’ region in new animated film

Superman, the fictional superhero, and its publisher DC Comics, faced severe backlash on social media from Indian users after a clip of a new animated film went viral portraying Kashmir as a ‘disputed’ region.

In the short 23-second clip, allegedly from the film ‘Injustice’, Superman and Wonder Woman are seen destroying military hardware including aircrafts in Kashmir.

Subsequently, a voice-over said, “In ‘disputed Kashmir’, Superman and Wonder Woman destroyed every piece of military equipment, declaring it an ‘arms-free’ zone.”

The film is an adaptation of the videogame of the same and was released on video streaming platform on October 19. It is yet to be released theatrically.

The clip also shows Superman forcing representatives of Israel and Palestine to agree on a deal. “You will agree to these terms, or they will be agreed to for you,” he was seen saying in the clip.

Since the clip went viral, many Twitter users have started criticising DC Comics and called for the boycott of the movie. Users started tweeting #AntiIndiaSuperman on Wednesday evening and the hashtag was trending even on Thursday on social media.

Some users mistakenly tagged Marvel Comics also in their posts boycotting Superman.

WarnerMedia, which owns DC Comics and the characters, did not comment on ET’s query, till filing of this report.

A twitter user wrote that westerners are now using animated movies to “propagate” the Anti India propaganda. “These cheap stunts won’t work. Kashmir is our integral part & we won’t tolerate these offending attempts to malign us.” Asking DC Comics to delete disputed scenes!

Recently, food delivery service Zomato and clothing brand FabIndia had faced social media backlash.
