Lego Batman Explains Why He Got His Own Movie: It's Because He's Awesome

Illustration for article titled Lego Batman Explains Why He Got His Own Movie: Its Because Hes Awesome

In case a movie featuring the Lego versions of Batman and company wasn’t already pushing the envelope for absurdity, we now have a “behind the scenes” video where the Lego figures explain why they made the movie. The fourth wall isn’t so much broken as it is twisted into a Möbius strip.


It’s not just the words that make this video funny—it’s the attention to detail. It’s Batman being credited as “Bruce Wayne’s roommate.” Or Alfred chasing bats around the Batcave in the background of Batman’s interview. Or Harley’s eating habits while the Joker talks. There are layers to this video.

The Lego Batman Movie comes out February 10.

Really love Will Arnett as Batman but I’m a little underwhelmed by Zach Galifianakis as the Joker in this.

Maybe it is just that Mark Hamill ruined the Joker for anyone else, but Galifianakis’ Joker seemed too...normal.
