A new DC movie calls Kashmir ‘disputed territory’ and has left leaving Indian media and fans irked on social media.

DC’s latest Superman movie ‘Injustice’ was released yesterday.

The animated film showcased Superman and Wonder Woman invading Kashmir.

The hero Superman describes ‘Kashmir’ as a disputed territory and destroys all the weapons of the Indian Army in the name of bringing peace.

And Superman declares Kashmir an arms-free zone.

Perhaps only a superhero could bring justice to the oppression faced by the residents of Jammu and Kashmir.

 

As expected, as soon as Superman’s deeds in the latest DC film came to light, Indians had started to trend hashtag  #AntiIndiaSuperman on Twitter.

While a number demanded DC Comics, the producer Superman, not only remove this scene from the film but also apologise to India.

 

 

DC is yet to comment on the situation.

However, in 2018, a similar situation was Tom Cruise’s Mission Impossible Fall Out.

The film showed Kashmir as a disputed region, but, after India’s objection, the scene was removed from the film.

It seems like the Hollywood filmmakers have realized the ground realities and some dare to showcase it.
