Superman: Dawn of Justice, posting mash-ups of characters from his current film project with those from the Star Wars universe.  Along with Synder, participants in this friendly war have included John Boyega – one of the newest members of the Star Wars family – and the team from J.J.

Star Wars REBELS“A New Hero” by Pablo Hidalgo

“So don’t be afraid of the Empire. Believe in something bigger than it. Believe in yourself.” - Star Wars REBELS: A New Hero
