Walmart Accidentally Listed LEGO DC Villains Video Game – Rumored to Have a Free Lex Luthor Minifigure

Last January, we mentioned that a rumored LEGO and Warner Bros Interactive collaboration is now on the works featuring the infamous villainous characters of the DC universe. Aptly titled, LEGO DC Villains, the said rumored project will put into the spotlight the characters of Joker and the rest of his mean posse and will feature a host of DC baddies in one video game package.

Now a few minutes ago, Walmart Canda’s online portal may have ‘unofficially confirmed’ this rumored LEGO video game when it seems to have accidentally listed the LEGO DC Villains video game for pre-order. Walmart was quick on the embargo trigger when it quickly removed the listing, but not without an eagle eyed LEGO fan forum member taking a screenshot.

Such unintentional reveal somehow proves that the said video game is actually out there, and so is the possibility of its rumored freebie which is the LEGO DC Superheroes Lex Luthor Superman Suit minifigure. This free, bundled minifigure has been spotted on eBay since March, together with the Green Lantern Jessica Cruz minifig coming from the same seller.  This particular version of Lex Luthor is based on DC Comics’ Rebirth where he is seen wearing a Superman-styled armor.

As of to date, no other retailer has posted the LEGO DC Villains video game, perhaps not until this year’s E3 and San Diego Comic Con hits the floor from June 12-14 and July 19-22 respectively. We’ll find out if LEGO and WB Games will make the announcement by then.

  1. You guys are going to believe a leak where villains is spelled “villans” and Lex Luthor’s torso looks poorly printed? I know it isn’t just your site, but I’m still baffled as to how everyone takes this “leak” seriously…

    1. Well, for one Warner Bros have already confirmed back in January that they were working on another video game project they referred to as “LEGO DC Villains”.

      So it’s already four months after that report, and we can expect WB and TT Games prepping up the marketing and stuff. About the Lex Luthor minifigure, it is somewhat of an open secret across LEGO fan forums that this will be exclusive to the video game. As they say, if there’s enough smoke, then certainly, there might be some fire underneath. 😉
