For fans that may have only seen The LEGO Batman Movie in cinemas last year, it might be a big surprise for some of them to learn that LEGO and Warner Bros. Animation-DC have long been in a partnership producing direct-to-video animated movies since 2013. Batman – naturally, if DC fans would have it – was simply lucky to have his film get a theatrical release, but he’s already had four LEGO DC DTVs.
Anyway, it seems even though cinema premieres for LEGO animated films have proven to be blockbusters, WB Animation has decided not to abandon its direct-to-TV movies yet. In fact, their next one is due to come out next year and the spotlights will now focus on The Fastest Hero(or minifig) on Earth himself.
Be it known then that Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to announce a new LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes film starring The Flash. The trailer they have put up is a whimsical story of fun and action, as Barry Allen/Flash finds himself confronting his equally super-fast nemesis from the future, Reverse Flash, who is trying to ruin his historical reputation. The Justice League is also involved, with plenty of excitement and humor to be had.
LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: The Flash comes out on February 13, 2018 for Digital, and March 13 for DVD ($19.98) and Blu-Ray ($24.98). If there are any minifigures included in the packages, LEGO has given no word as of yet. But it’s about time the speedster gets his turn in the LEGO spotlight. Check out the full press release here.
