I’ll admit that I was a bit disappointed we were getting a LEGO Batman spinoff before getting The LEGO Movie 2, but leave it to Phil Lord & Christopher Miller to get me excited for it again. The filmmaking duo are serving as producers on LEGO Batman, and to their credit, they created a fun spin on the character in The LEGO Movie. Also, while “Everything Is Awesome” is the song that gets all the attention (only because it gets stuck in your head to the point where you want to die), “Untitled Self Portrait” is pretty damn funny.
My main qualm with a LEGO Batman movie was that we’ve already seen Batman so many times on screen, but it turns out that LEGO Batman will be using the Dark Knight’s past on-screen iterations to its advantage. Hit the jump for more including how the upcoming LEGO movies, including Ninjago, will tie together Avengers-style.
