Starring: Will Arnett, Rosario Dawson, Ralph Fiennes, Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis, Mariah Carey
Animated spinoff action comedy directed by Chris McKay. Batman has few people in his life besides his trusty butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes), and he spends much of his time secluded in his Batcave. But everything changes when he meets Dick Grayson/Robin (Michael Cera) and Barbara Gordon/Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), which is probably for the best, considering Batman’s nemesis, the Joker (Zach Galifianakis), is still out there in the Lego universe.
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.REVIEWS

Crowd: Batman, we love you!
Batman: Thank you. I’m blushing super hard under the mask.

Batman: Hey, computer, I’m home.
[his voice echoes in the Batcave]
Computer: Welcome home, sir. Initializing Batcave music.

Batman: I saved the city again. It was off the chain. Anyway, I should probably have some grub.
[we see Batman quickly getting out of his suite and put a dressing gown]
Computer: Alfred left your lobster thermidor in the fridge.
Batman: Oh, that’s my favorite. I can’t wait.
[we see Batman in the kitchen putting the plate of lobster thermidor into the microwave and he presses 20 minutes]

Alfred Pennyworth: Sir, it’s time for you to stop this unhealthy behavior. You can’t spend the rest of your life alone, dressed in black and staying up all night. Sir, you need to take responsibility for your life, and it starts by raising the young orphan you adopted.

Robin: This one.
Batman: Absolutely not!
[the next costume is called the Reggae Man]
Robin: Wait, what’s that one there?
[he puts on the Reggae Man suit]
Robin: I love it. The only trouble is these pants are just a little tight. I got an idea.
[he takes off the pants]
Robin: Rip! That’s better. Now I’m free, now I’m moving. Come on, Batman, let’s get grooving!

The Joker: Hi, Batman!
Robin: No way!
The Joker: Come catch your greatest enemy.
Batman: Superman is my greatest enemy.
Robin: Superman’s not a bad guy!

[Joker looks visibly upset]
Batman: I like to fight around.
The Joker: Do you want to play a game, do you, Batman? Save the city or catch your greatest enemy.
Batman: You think you’re my greatest enemy.
The Joker: What drives you to one-up the way that I do?
The Joker: Superman’s not a bad guy!
Batman: I like to fight around.
The Joker: Are you seriously saying that there is nothing special about us?
Batman: There is no us. Never will be. Now, I gotta diffuse that bomb.
