The Lego Batman Movie's Bruce Wayne Is Incapable of Keeping His Secret Identity Secret

Signing up to do a Cribs-style show when you’re secretly a bat-themed vigilante seems like a profoundly unwise decision. Doing it as both your alter-ego and your real identity just seems downright silly, Bruce.


The latest promo for The Lego Batman Movie is “Gotham Cribs,” which is, as you’d expect, a Lego-based lampooning of the classic MTV home-tour show. Follow along as Batman and his “roommate” Bruce Wayne take us on a tour of the down-to-earth and not at all ostentatious Wayne Manor.

Getting an up-close look at the actual scenery from the film and how it’s all rendered in Lego pieces is great enough, but it’s the running gag of Bruce switching between his civilian persona and Batman that’s the highlight of this promo. Warner Bros. have really pulled out all the stops with these bonus skits in the run up to the movie’s release next week.

Holy shit, I didn’t realize that movie was coming out NEXT week!

Anyway, video: amazing. I love that set. The lobster tank in the kitchen (and the tiles on the kitchen), the pool, that massive dining hall with all those pictures, the upside-down climbing wall in the bedroom... the level of detail in this is insane. The effort they put into this just blows my mind. I wish I could step into these rooms and explore them, I feel like I could.

It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve seen new, iconic set design. I’m sure I’m forgetting stuff, but this just instantly sticks into my brain.
