The addition of LeBron James and his character from Space Jam 2 is a necessity in MultiVersus considering the game’s crossover potential.
After some rumors and leaks, WB’s upcoming MultiVersus game has revealed a pretty star-studded cast of characters. Classics like Batman and Superman will be present in the platformer-brawler alongside newer characters like Fin, Jake, Garnet, and even Arya Stark. Possibly one of the most enticing aspects of these characters is the return of their voice actors which should provide an organic experience for fans that won’t make voice lines and character dialog in MultiVersus feel uncanny.
This flexes the fact that WB has the rights to a lot of different media properties and these characters show that MultiVersus is willing to pit fan-favorites against one another regardless of the franchises’ original target audiences. This could eventually include some of the biggest names that WB has worked with and on that extensive list is one of the NBA’s greatest players, LeBron James. As the leading actor and character in Space Jam 2, he helped to reprise a franchise for a new generation and is no stranger to video game appearances. His likeness and stats are already present in the NBA 2k series and during the summer of 2021 players could get LeBron James in Fortnite.
