First Trailer For ‘Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite’

Well it looks like we Do have a Justice League movie after all, it’s just being presented in Lego. Lego Batman: The Movie – DC Superheroes Unite sees Lex Luthor team up with The Joker and start deconstructing their little lego world. Judging by the trailer below, this film looks hilarious. I love seeing Superman call Batman a “sourpuss” and the makers have obviously had a lot of fun without betraying the characters. All your favourites are included such as Robin, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Martian Manhunter, The Flash, and Wonder Woman.

Lego had some success with their Lego Star Wars: The Padawan Menace and with big name franchises wanting a piece (getit?)Lego may become a big name in cinema.I’m hoping for a Lego version of Salo 120 Days Of Sodom and Straw Dogs.
