    It's supposed to be Doctor Phosphorus.

    After all the villain cameos, it was nice seeing the Super Friends characters (Wonder Twins, El Dorado, Black Vulcan, etc) in the Justice League.

    And the tie-ins begin:

    It's okay Bruce, you can always rely on your R&D team from Powerless to give you glowing reviews (just having Mr.Freeman cover up your tracks)!

    I can't believe this movie is out in a week! I'm hyped! Lego Batman, let's go! :D



    "You wanna get nuts? Come on. Let's get nuts!"

    UPDATE: The voice actors for many of the film's villains have been confirmed including Conan O'Brien (Batman - The Dark Knight Returns Part 2, Young Justice's The Flaming C) as Riddler and Zoe Kravitz (X-Men: First Class) as Catwoman.

    Additionally, some unexpected characters will appear and voice actors for Justice League members like Superman and Green Lantern will return from The Lego Movie.

    Just back from seeing this (there are special screenings here in UK/Ireland today and tomorrow).

    It's an absolutely phenomenal movie. Funny, action-packed and seriously heart warming. The mix is perfect and it is without a doubt the best DC film since The Dark Knight. In less than a year I have seen FIVE Batman (or Batman featured) movies on the big screen. This one is by far the best, which is almost sad when you think about it.

    Bottom line, if you love Batman, you owe it to yourself to see this little gem of a movie.

    Also... how embarrassing that LEGO Joker wipes the floor with Jared Leto's attempt.

    Early reviews have been surprisingly positive with one reviewer upon first screening declaring that The LEGO Batman Movie is now his favorite Batman film.

    Sounds great and absolutely keeps my hype exactly where it is: as high up as the Bat-Signal can shine! :D

    I'm glad you got to see it early and really enjoyed it. Great start to 2017 for superhero movies similar to Deadpool last year and hopefully the same for my man Black Panther next year. Did you have a favorite character?
    Surprisingly? Really? Did people expect this to be bad or were they riding the DC movie hate train? I don't love the DCEU, but there definitely seems to be cynical people that believe every DC movie will be negatively received now.

    The anticipated Batman: The Killing Joke, that wasn't a DCEU movie but was a (briefly) theatrically released DC movie, didn't help even if Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, that also released theatrically for a day, was well received.

    UPDATE: Paul Dini gives the movie a thumbs up! He also gave me a hint about his response to anything related to his Batman work. Really awesome that he responded to me! ;)

    'Surprising' because this movie is based as much on a toy franchise as on a comics property, so I would not have thought that expectations for it would be very high.

    Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders has been well-received critically, but its box-office for the Fathom Event was a bit disappointing. Somewhat the opposite of the results for Batman: The Killing Joke.

    I can't tell if they reused dialogue or had the actual actors come in to record new lines :sweat:.

    Warner Bros is doing a fun cross-promotion with all of their own properties (The Arrowverse, Ellen Degeneres's talk show, The Big Bang Theory, Mom, The Middle, and Gotham) by creating LEGO versions of their billboard posters at WB HQ.




    Source (with the other non-DC Warner Bros shows): http://mashable.com/2017/02/06/lego...rl-arrow-gotham-big-bang-theory/#Jpm4F7.GnOqs

    In addition, the ending credits for the Arrowverse shows this week (Supergirl, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Arrow) will have special LEGO ending variants (They're off to good start with the cute Supergirl one last night), so keep your eyes peeled:

    For the nitpick type, yeah, some of the mini-figures aren't quite accurate depictions of the show's version.

    I've found some more LEGO Batman crossover tie-in clips, including the LEGO DC ending cards:





    As a side note, this isn't the first time Stephan Amell and the Arrow crew have volunteered into becoming LEGO-ized pastiches of themselves, in the form of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham's Arrow DLC (Seriously, Stephan Amell had too much fun with this one).
