Broadsheet Trailer Park: The Lego Batman Movie


Lego Batman

What you may need to know:

1. Will Arnett’s Lego Batman gets a spin off. With Ralph “the ‘L’ is silent” Fiennes as Alfred.

2. There are no fewer than FOUR Lego movies in the pipeline. Ninjago is due in 2017, and Phil Lord/Chris Miller’s Lego Movie Sequel is out in 2018. Jason Segel is also developing The Billion Brick Race for a 2018 release.

That’s a lot of bricks.

So, what did we think of Batman v Superman?

5. It seems to be getting a lot of hate, but in fairness I’ve seen worse.

Broadsheet prognosis: Everything’s not awesome.

Release Date: February 10, 2017.

    Batman V Superman makes no sense. It sounds like a marketing department thinking they can do the job of the creatives and killing the golden goose in the process.

    Creatives think long term, marketing goons think in one year spans.

      And yet Batman V Superman is something that has happened time and again through the comics from their first set to in 1986.

      For Batman it’s about Justice before Law. For Superman it’s the other way round so Batman V Superman is a perfectly reasonable clash of ideals resolved in the traditional American way of might equals right. That said, it’s never actually resolved as they are usually interrputed by a common foe.

        Except in The Dark Knight Returns, where Batman successfully defeats superman, because supes has become a tool of the failing government.

          Didn’t that fight end with Batman “dying” of a heart attack with victory in his grasp?

      It’s grossed millions and critics are what exactly apart from opinion givers. The film was no where near as bad as the reviews.

        I had to bring my son to it.

        I thought it was quite underwhelming.
        Overlong, poorly scripted and Jesse Eisenberg was appalling IMO.

        Amy Adams and Jeremy Irons were the only saving grace.

    Batman v dredd was a way more interesting dichotomy. I hope someone makes judgment in Gotham into a movie soon..

      Apparently there’s a movement to get Netflix or Amazon to try out a Dredd series using the latest movie as the starting point.

        I’m looking forward to A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix. Thought I’d just throw it out there.

            Yes, apparently Neil Patrick Harris will be Count Olaf, something I’m surprisingly ok with.

            In an ideal world he’d be joined by H. Jon Benjamin, as Lemony Snicket/Narrator.

        Dredd is a better fit for a series than a movie, anyway. Having said that, Dredd from a few years ago was fantastic.
