LeBron James almost wore Game of Thrones armor in Space Jam 2
Full Game of Thrones armor was designed for LeBron James to wear in Space Jam: A New Legacy, but the idea was ultimately rejected.
LeBron James almost wore a The iron Throne armor in Jam space 2. The long-awaited sequel to the years 1998 Space jam finally arrived last month and despite harsh reviews it has so far grossed $ 122 million at the box office while simultaneously airing on HBO Max.
The second Space jam is called of course Space Jam: a new legacy for good reason – it stars current NBA superstar James instead of original movie star Michael Jordan (the only Jordan in the new movie is Michael B. Jordan). A new legacy he brings back Space jam features the Looney Tunes, who get new 3D renderings for the movie’s big basketball showdown sequence. In addition to the NBA stars and familiar WB cartoon characters featured in the film, Space Jam: a new legacy also introduces the WB Serververse gadget, which allows cameos from a wide range of characters whose rights belong to WarnerMedia. With eagle eyes The iron Throne fans certainly noted the presence of Drogon and the Night King, who both made the trip to Westeros to watch James and his Toon Squad fight Al G. Rhythm and his Goon Squad in video game hoops (with nothing less that the fate of all mankind on the line).
As it turns out Space Jam: a new legacy almost had an even bigger connection with HBO and WarnerMedia The iron Throne. As revealed by THR, costume designer Melissa Bruning made an entire costume from Obtained armor that James will wear in the film. Unfortunately, the costume was not incorporated into the finished film. See James wearing his unused Obtained armor in a picture in the space below:
James may not have been able to dress like a warrior from The iron Throne but he was able to wear several other costumes during his interactions with the characters of the Serververse. At one point Space Jam: a new legacy it is adorned with a full Matrix costume, while at another point he is wearing a vintage costume from Casablanca. In another sequence, he puts a Mad Max suit and sports a mohawk. James had entered the film in its entirety Obtained costume, he would have joined NFL star Aaron Rodgers on the shortlist of professional athletes who were given the honor of playing briefly in the The iron Throne Sandbox.
No explanation was provided by costume designer Bruning as to why the The iron Throne the costume was eventually cut from the movie but she said she “cried a little inside”When he failed to enter. Taking into account the overload Space Jam: a new legacy already is, it is likely that the decision has been taken to reduce the The iron Throne connection for runtime (James interacts directly with certain areas of the Serververse, diving directly into the worlds of The matrix and Mad Max: Fury Road, while other links like Austin Powers and Obtained pass without James really participating). Indeed, at times the movie just looks like a big advertisement for WarnerMedia’s catalog, with the cameo characters having no impact on the actual story. Some of these cameos, like those in Mad Max‘s War Boys and A clockwork orange‘s Droogs, are actually quite shocking. It might have been fun to see James put on armor and interact more with the world of The iron Throne, corn Jam space 2 is certainly full enough as it is.
