What The LEGO Batman Movie 2 Would Have Been About, According To Chris McKay

There have been so many Batman movies over the last few years that it’s almost difficult to keep track of them all. Each one has tried to find new ways to differentiate itself. None were so successful at this as The LEGO Batman Movie. It was a hilarious take on the dark knight that fans loved and it was a box-office success. It turns out there was an idea for a sequel and it sounds incredible.

Chris McKay directed The LEGO Batman Movie and he recently revealed to Uproxx that there was at least an outline for what The LEGO Batman Movie 2 would have been. As with many superhero franchises, the film would have upped the stakes by increasing the number of heroes. We would have seen the entire LEGO Justice League but also learned about Batman’s troubled history with the group, and with Superman. McKay explained…

The sequel would’ve been a quasi Superfriends movie and the structure was going to be a sort of Godfather II kind of thing with Batman and the Justice League facing a modern-day problem, Lex Luthor and OMAC, while at the same time flashing back to the reasons why Batman and the Justice League – and in particular, Superman – have bad blood. It was going to explore Superman and Batman’s relationship in a very different way than you’ve ever seen it portrayed, including Superman’s alienation from humanity and how hard it is to truly be friends, real friends, for years. It was ultimately going to answer the question: How do you become Super-friends. And there was going to be a crossover with a major franchise that can only happen in a LEGO movie.
