CS Video: The LEGO Batman Movie and the Expanding LEGO Cinematic Universe


Find out the future of the LEGO movies slate.

What does the future hold for the LEGO movies cinematic universe?

Number one at the box office with a worldwide take already in excess of $92 million, Warner Bros. Pictures‘ The LEGO Batman Movie has proven to be a hit with critics and audiences alike. Last week, we brought you conversations with stars Will Arnett (Batman), Michael Cera (Robin) and Zach Galifianakis (Joker). Now, we’ve got a new behind-the-scenes video for you as CS sits down with director Chris McKay and producer Dan Lin. In the player below, you can check out their thoughts on the rapidly-expanding LEGO movies cinematic universe and find out how The LEGO Batman Movie wound up borrowing a few decidedly non-DC Comics. Lin even shares an idea for a dream LEGO Batman sequel that would bring in voice talents from throughout the Dark Knight’s long history of adaptations.

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: The LEGO Batman Movie. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, 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.
