Where… do I…. begin? … Batman…, yes… NO! Well… you see, it was recently another that a LEGO Batman feature theatrically released movie would hit theaters in 2017 (the sahem year as The Lego Movie 2… Oh, nope.. the sequel was pushed to 2018). .. … Do you know how much this bricks me off? It is bad enough that Batman is now Boreman because of how overexposed, praised, and… well, how overpraised and used he is… But also, that Warner is exploiting their film deal with the Lego Company to give their cash-bat a LEGO film that he does NOT need. Bricks, he doesn’t need any more publicity to begin with. Batman is a licensed character, not an original lego creation. He and anyone else are alright to appear in a movie like “The Lego Movie”, but having his own theatrical flick in theatres is out of place. If any lego brand based off a popular franchise should be one based off is Star Wars, since that was the FIRST licensed line and helped save the company. Besides, Batman had a lego movie direct-to-dvd… well.. it was just scenes from the second video game put together because WB was desperate to market the dark knight off. Back to subject, characters like Johnny Thunder and co should be the ones having movies… oh wait, I forgot that everyone forgot about them. sigh. … this move could also be because of Batman’s positive reception in The Lego Movie. I was upset that he was chosen to be a main character, and for that reason worried before the film came out, and even didn’t like him still although the movie was good (aka. WORST CHARACTER IN THE MOVIE). Of course, I cannot change that. However, he had some funny parts, and my little brother got to see Batman on the big screen since Warner and Hollywood only want to make live-action superhero films PG-13 and R along with not be funny and more moody than Final Fantasy characterz now. Still, that was enough… Batman had his Lego screen glory in the movie, he doesn’t need more. Bricks, The Lego Movie’s story was completed, so the sequel should about another character and his or her “set’ (no pun intended) of friends: a theory I have discussed already in the past. (And about my brother, I will say that this personally is frustrating because he is a big Batman fan, and looks up to me as Robin. That, and my best friend became a lover via those terrible Nolan films, and a recent friend and college of mine has liked the character his whole life.. Although he is very understanding). Not, to mention, that (even with the exception of other people sick of Batman) a lot of audiences’ and people seem to be sooooooooo forgiving of this, without any thought outside of the norm (hmmmmm Everything is Awesome, perhaps?) Speaking of Robin, Warner Bros seems to really dislike the dude… like, his last appearance in Cinema was back in 1990-freaking-SEVEN (although 2016 may change that… maybe), and the fact that there is no need for Robin recently (especially in Lego), and that, that Teen Titans… bad Teen Titans parody…makes him look bad. But, it could be worse..,. way worse… (whispers… WE DO NOT SPEAK OF… THE THING…Ever). Since I have made myself very clear about how overrated and overpublicized Batman is (except, maybe I have not said much of how cowardly WB/DC is on using him instead of taking risks and showcasing another hero, heck Batman is in every direct-to-video movie recently for some reason…), I will monolog about another matter. I have stated that I was afraid that Warner Bros would trick and trap The Lego Group into becoming their property (it would be a better alternative than Disney, but I rather see none buy them out). As of now, I am pleased with what Warner is going to do with The Lego Group, and am in fear of what could happen… especially how the licensed brands (even the NON-Warner one) are currently more popular than the actual original creations and characters of Lego (except Ninjago and the overrated Lego Movie, which I do like as a kid-at-heart, do not get me wrong), but that is a given, since the new brands have been… forgettable. But it is heartbreaking that the great heroes, villains, stories, average people, and events of the past have gone into oblivion. It is an important actual matter of life to ponder over, but some personal nostalgic parts of my life always seem to get butchered somehow, and it is the stuff of nightmares. For as long as I hope, I’’ll continue to boycott this move and hope that hope comes (I also forgot to mention that there are more Batman minifigures than that of Johnny, or JackStone). I really have issue with massive giants mannerlessly invading spaces they do not belong in nor own.
