ThE count­down is on to the ar­rival of the world’s largest lego ex­hi­bi­tion in­spired by Jus­tice league su­per­heroes and vil­lains.

Artist Nathan Sawaya will soon be on his way to the cap­i­tal to de­but more than two mil­lions pieces of Lego and 120 works of art cap­tur­ing the likes of Bat­man, Su­per­man and Won­der Woman.

The Art of the Brick: DC Su­per He­roes will take stage on Lon­don’s South Bank on March 1.

To­gether with Warner Bros and DC En­ter­tain­ment, through a se­ries of im­mer­sive gal­leries, char­ac­ters and ve­hi­cles, the good ver­sus evil ex­hibit will in­clude a num­ber of show­stop­pers.

Visi­tors will em­bark on a 80-year his­tor­i­cal jour­ney through the col­lec­tion of art­works, in­clud­ing a life-size Bat­mo­bile, built from half a mil­lion pieces, an in­cred­i­ble Bat­man and Su­per­man as well as The Joker and Har­ley Quinn.

Mr Sawaya said: “Just like Su­per­man, we all have our own story. This art col­lec­tion is based on the el­e­ments of the jour­ney of a su­per­hero, in­clud­ing the mo­ment in which we are all called to the ad­ven­ture.”

Peter van Ro­den, se­nior vice pres­i­dent of global themed en­ter­tain­ment at Warner Bros Con­sumer Prod­ucts, said: “We are in­cred­i­bly ex­cited to con­tinue our part­ner­ship with Nathan on this unique and fas­ci­nat­ing global tour­ing ex­hi­bi­tion, which com­bines DC icons with Lego in an im­mer­sive en­ter­tain­ment ex­pe­ri­ence.
