’Sup Bat-fans, Watch LEGO Batman Give a Tour of Wayne Manor for ‘Gotham Cribs’
The self-aware superhero thing seems to be becoming a trend. Last year, Deadpool charmed audiences with his irreverent, R-rated take on the origin story, cursing up a storm and breaking the fourth wall every five minutes. LEGO Batman, possibly the best part of The LEGO Movie, was similar, throwing in jabs now and again to his dark, broody characterization in The Dark Knight Trilogy. The LEGO Batman Movie promises more of the same in this new “Gotham Cribs” clip, which shows LEGO Batman trying really hard not to let everyone know he and LEGO Bruce Wayne are the same person. If he were any more aware of himself, he’d ascend to nirvana.
The clip is pretty hilarious, with LEGO Batman showing off the extravagant digs of his “roommate” Bruce Wayne, who totally isn’t the same person. The constant pinging back and forth between Batman and Bruce gives both an opportunity to lavish compliments on each other too. Even Alfred and a wide-eyed Robin make an appearance at the end. If The LEGO Batman Movie has even an ounce of the humor in its promotional material, it’ll be a worthy successor of The LEGO Movie.
Here’s the synopsis:
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.
The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters February 17.
