Wonder Woman (Not Batman) Is Real Star of ‘Justice League,’ Mattel Teases

Packaging for new Mera doll includes synopsis of movie that centers on Diana Prince instead of Bruce Wayne

On Tuesday, Mattel released the “Justice League” Barbie Signature Mera doll, and its packaging included a synopsis for “Justice League” that centered on Wonder Woman instead of Batman.

“Once again, Wonder Woman must demonstrate her ability as a fierce warrior,” the new synopsis reads. “Facing a great enemy, she and Batman join forces to recruit a group of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. Having formed an unprecedented League of heroes, they set out to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

The original synopsis, however, centers on Bruce Wayne gathering a group of heroes with his new ally, Diana Prince.

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy,” it reads. “Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes–Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash–it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.”

“Wonder Woman” has received critical and commercial acclaim since its release in June. It just crossed the $400 million domestic box office benchmark and has grossed almost $800 million worldwide.
