    Interesting it is framed as a Batman sequel, it’s clear they know where the money in the license is.

    If the character selection is as expansive as some of the more recent Lego Star Wars games (which covered just about every imaginable character no matter how obscure), this could be incredible… but if the other heroes are much more limited, I’ll still enjoy it but be disappointed.

    This reminds me. I got to thinking the other day. Have there been any plans announced or rumored for DC figures based on the NuDCU designs?

      There are DC Direct figures that have the NuDCU designs… nothing has been said about LEGO skins.

    They should have just made a Justice League game.
