Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh myyyy ggoosshhhh!
If you’d asked anyone after watching the LEGO Movie if they thought there’d be a sequel, they have said ‘Heck Yes!’.
You might have noticed a black clad plastic buffoon with ultra-gruff voice (supposedly a dead ringer for Will Arnett) and serious lack of emotional awareness stole the show a little.
Well, he’s elbowed his way into the Warners offices and made enough of a nuisance of himself to get his own movie greenlit. He is totally ready to have an awesome Joker-kicking adventure, when a concerned and tired Ralph Fiennes… I mean Alfred, tells him he needs to stop leading his distressing/weird lifestyle and take some responsibility.
It turns out that he adopted some orphan at a Gala (out of his mind or gourd, even Bru… Batman doesn’t remember), and this butler is not letting his master get out of looking after the enthusiastic, if dangerously naïve, young man.
Naturally, LEGO Batman shows off to his ward by taking him to the Batcave and letting the boy pick a costume. Spanish Batman? No. Glam-Band Bat? No. Flame-Bat? No way, Kid! Reggae Man? Excellent says his ward, but the tights need to go!
It looks like this is going to be an excellent bat-venture once more, as an out-of-touch lobster-microwaving sociopath tries to teach life lessons to an overexcited nerd.
The boy seems blissfully unaware he’s been adopted by a man that dresses like a bat so often he is actually afraid of light, and doesn’t install safety equipment in his own military-grade vehicles, because ‘Life doesn’t give you seat-belts!’
Naa naa naa naa naa naa naa BATMANNN! That’s the password should you want get in line with SBOC when this comes out in February 2017.
