Villains for the upcoming Space Jam 2 movie have been officially revealed to be Damian Lillard and Anthony Davis, amongst others.
A movie that has been in the works for well over half of a decade is finally about to hit the big screen in 2 months from now as LeBron James suits alongside the Looney Tunes in Space Jam 2. the plot revolves around James needing to save his son from the main villain of the story, Al-G Rhythm, played by Don Cheadle.
Cheadle recently made headlines after claiming that Michael Jordan will be in Space Jam 2 in some capacity. However, this may be a bait ‘n’ switch on his part as he could’ve meant that Creed actor Michael B. Jordan would make a cameo in the movie, not the Chicago Bulls legend himself.
Cheadle’s character in the movie will be boasting an impressive lineup on NBA and WNBA players as his team that will look to take on LeBron James, Bugs Bunny, and the rest of the Looney Tunes squad.
LeBron James’s adversaries for Space Jam 2 have been revealed.
Warner Brothers decided to animate existing superstars in both the NBA and WNBA as their 5-man lineup to take on LeBron James’s squad. The lineup of opposing villains includes 3 NBA players and 2 WNBA players.
- Damian Lillard as Chronos
- Diana Tuarasi as White Mamba
- Nneka Ogwumike as Arachnneka
- Anthony Davis as the Brow
- Klay Thompson as WetFire

Damian Lillard’s name is a reference to his now iconic celebration during clutch time heroics; a celebration that’s been dubbed as ‘Dame Time’. Anthony Davis’s is more obvious with the fact that he has a unibrow and is hence, the Brow. Klay Thompson’s hot shooting from beyond the arc is the inspiration behind the name, ‘WetFire’.
It seems as though LeBron James will most definitely have his hands full during the movie as a lineup boasting Dame, Davis, and Klay would perhaps be one of the most lethal trios in the NBA in terms of 3-level scoring. Not to mention the fact that Nneka is a pest of defense while Diana is perhaps the greatest to ever take to the WNBA court.
