Warner Brothers continued to kill at the 2016 San Diego Comic-Con with the trailer of The Lego Batman Movie. Once again, Will Arnett reprises his comedic take on the Batman character by hitting us in the funny bone with certain obvious truths. The first truth is that Alfred is the only true parent of the entire Bat family. The second is that any Robin portrayal where the character doesn’t wear parents is violently cringe-inducing for the brooding Batman. Finally, the third is that “Black and Yellow” was always meant to be played in a Batman trailer. We just didn’t know it until now. How is a toy company who is only supposed to care about action figures able to consistently make good stuff for the past decade or so?
Enough with my eye-rolling praise. Watch the trailer for yourself.
