When it comes to baseball movies, A League of Their Own is certainly up there on the list of all-time greats. It's charming with lovely performances, memorable quotes, and it's about as heartwarming as it gets. The women in the movie are already as close to superheroes as lady baseball players can get, which is why someone had the great idea to mash the movie up with Justice League. Check out this cool poster putting A League of Their Own characters in the place of the Justice League.
It's the 25th anniversary of A League of Their Own and to celebrate the good folks over at Halloween Costumes created this pitch perfect mashup of the baseball movie with the upcoming Justice League. Dubbed "A Justice League of Their Own", the poster takes Batman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and the Flash and replaces them with the leading ladies from A League of Their Own. Each of the women is redesigned slightly to match the different heroes of the Justice League, their baseball uniforms altered to match the bright colors and iconography.
Starting over on the far left is Dorothy "Dottie" Hinson, the assistant manager and catcher of the Rockford Peaches. Played by Geena Davis, Dottie was the glue that held the team together and a certifiable wonder woman on the field. Her sister, Kit Keller, takes the place of Aquaman. That might seem random, but Kit was something of the lone wolf of the Peaches, much like how Aquaman seems to fill the same role in Justice League.
Portrayed by Madonna, "All the Way" Mae Mordabito liked to live life fast and on the loose. Her energetic personality makes her a good fit for the Flash. Taking center is Rosie O'Donnell's Doris Murphy in Batman's spot. You probably wouldn't associate Rosie O'Donnell with Batman on any regular day, but her A League of Their Own character did have a sort of spunk and fearlessness that is normal to Batman.
The final figure on this poster, Mamie Johnson, is not actually in the movie. Johnson was a real-life starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Clowns where she pitched against men. She attempted to try out for the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League but was rejected due to her race. She was said to have inspired a scene in A League of Their Own, so it's nice to see her get some recognition here.

There may not be any baseball players in it, but you can catch Justice League when it arrives in theaters on November 17, 2017. As always, stay with CinemaBlend for more updates and new information as soon as it becomes available.
