Now that you’ve had a chance to witness the brick-based glory that is The LEGO Batman Movie in theaters–and big SPOILER warning if you haven’t–you might be wondering just how many Easter eggs you missed during the film’s brisk 104-minute runtime. I’m willing to guess: quite a bit. The movie moves so fast from one joke to the next that it’s nearly impossible for any mere mortal to catch every amazing reference.
So with that in mind, we’ve put them together here for you in one convenient location. All the superheroes, supervillains, and Super Friends from the movie (as well as descriptions and background for each of these obscure references), along with nods to other movies and TV shows in the Batman universe. The LEGO Batman Movie pulled no punches when it came to other movies in the DC Extended Universe or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the jabs were in good humor and usually self-referential. I’m sure I missed a few, so feel free to share others in the comments below! (Big shout-outs to Screencrush and Yahoo! for their most excellent round-ups, as well as our own Haleigh Foutch!)

Here’s the official synopsis:
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble—LEGO® Batman—stars in his own big-screen adventure.
But there are big changes brewing in Gotham City, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
