The Lego Movie was a heartfelt love letter to the magic of play, a celebration of all the creativity and joy that these tiny plastic building blocks have brought to children and adults around the world for decades upon decades. But it was also an excuse to sell lots of Lego toys. Because who says you can’t be totally sincere and make lots of money at the same time?
In a similar vein, The Lego Batman Movie looks like an affectionate nod to the Caped Crusader and his storied history — his various personalities and personas, his weird quirks and inconsistencies, his colorful friends and foes — but also like a really good opportunity to promote some new Lego Batman toy sets. Lego has just released new images featuring a bunch of new vehicles and villains, including the Batwing, Harley Quinn, Bane, and Two-Face. Check out the Lego Batman vehicles below. Read More »

Still, they’ve got a few promising projects coming up on the slate including Justice League and The Batman. And those involved with the franchise would really, really like you to know that they’re going to be good.
In a new interview, Aquaman screenwriter Will Beall talks up Justice League as “much more fun” and “much poppier” than its somber predecessors. Meanwhile, Ben Affleck reassures fans that, yes, he’s still planning to direct The Batman. Read More »
