With The LEGO Batman Movie topping the box office this past weekend, and Ben Affleck leaving The Batman as director (and possibly as the star according to a new rumor), there has been plenty of discussion about The Dark Knight lately. Therefore, it’s the perfect time for Honest Trailers to look back at a time when Batman became the hero we needed all over again.
Christopher Nolan gave us a near-perfect reboot of the Caped Crusader after Joel Schumacher took the superhero into goofball territory. Batman Begins is as grounded as superhero movies get, and it set up what most regard as one of the best comic book franchises ever made. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some jokes to be had at the movie’s expense, especially when it comes to how outlandish the third act really is.

It’s hard to dislike any movie that features a Gymkata joke inside a Gremlins joke inside a The Twilight Zone joke, so yes, The LEGO Batman Movie is perfectly delightful. When a film’s biggest flaw is that there are so many jokes that you can’t keep up with them and start to feel overwhelmed by the number of Easter eggs and references flying by you (and sometimes right over your head), something has been done right. This film is an anarchic joy and a worthy successor to the subversive The LEGO Movie, the rare blockbuster that chomped down the hand that feeds it with gleeful abandon.
But here’s the thing: The LEGO Batman Movie is actually a damn good Batman movie. More than that, it’s a movie that’s all about how to be a better fan. And not just a fan of Gotham City’s homegrown billionaire vigilante – this movie is a guidebook for how to properly appreciate the characters and stories you love.
