Over the last few years LEGO has shifted from just being the most popular building blocks of all time into a video game and animated series franchise all it’s own. With the highly successful LEGO Movie it brought the popular LEGO Batman to the forefront with him stealing almost every scene he was in, but this wasn’t his first appearance in LEGO animated form. Previously they released the film Batman the Movie: DC Super Heroes Unite to DVD and now they are taking fans back to that fun universe with the all new Cartoon Network television special LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leagured.
In the special Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man band. He is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new Super Hero team, The Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed… whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes! With Earth’s mightiest super-being missing, it’s time for the World’s Greatest Detective to spring into action. With no time to lose and the entire planet to search, Batman enlists the aid of the fastest man alive, The Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Cyborg to fight famous costumed Super-Villains before vanishing one-by-one at the hand of a mysterious enemy. It now falls to the Dark Knight, who alone must free the newly- formed Justice League from a powerful foe, but can Batman learn the value of being a team-player before the Justice League is lost forever?
Don’t miss the return to LEGO Gotham and the darkly funny world of the LEGO DC Universe when LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leagured premieres on October 27th on Cartoon Network.
