“A movie so big, it needs two video.” That’s how LEGO’s YouTube channel describes Trailer #2 of the Caped Crusader’s latest iteration in LEGO brick form. Hot on the trails of the LEGO Batman Movie’s first trailer a couple of days ago, another one was just released for all the ‘uber nerd fans’ of the Dark Knight. As Batman puts it, “When the rest of you are as super as me, you don’t just get one trailer, you get two trailers – in ONE WEEK.”
The video gives us a peek inside the Dark Knight’s grandiose crib, in a scene that shows Batman being in a reflective mood in front of his old family pictures. In its usual LEGO fashion, the films points out what is clearly obvious already about Batman’s past – with a little bit of healthy sarcasm on the part of Batman’s loyal butler, Alfred. The ever loyal confidant knows Batman too well, so much so that he can emphatically say to him, “I’ve seen you go through similar phases in 2016, 2012, 2008, 2005, 1997, 1995, 1992, 1989 and that weird one in 1966.”, coupled with some video snippets from those years.
Of course, the Dark Knight doesn’t want to be ‘touchy’ on the matter. He feels much better blowing off steam through his breakdancing and beatbox music. Unfortunately, Alfred forgot the basic rules of ABR – “Always Be Recording”, and was not able to capture that very seldom moment of Batman dancing (except for that weird, Egyptian dance routine in 1966).
As a bonus and perhaps the most awaited part of the trailer, is when all the villains of the film were featured in one cool shot.
Present in the video roster are (from left to right): The Penguin, The Riddler, Killer Croc, Catwoman, Bane, Clayface, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn, Mr Freeze (just behind Harley Quinn), Two-Face, and Scarecrow.
Will soon see if the Caped Crusader will level up in his awesomeness to merit a third trailer before this week ends.
