Lego Batman Gets His Own TV Special

Lego DC Comics: Batman: Be-Leaguered

After a breakout performance in The Lego Movie (and his own earlier film), Lego Batman is getting his own TV special.

Lego DC Comics: Batman: Be-Leaguered will air on Cartoon Network on Monday, October 27 at 6 PM Eastern/5 PM Central.

Based on this clip, Batman is his usual solo grumpy self, even when Superman wants him to join the Justice League.

It’s being promoted as “a funny, lighthearted tale new to the DC Comics universe”, which we can certainly use more of. Here’s the full description:

Lego DC Comics: Batman: Be-Leaguered

Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man band. He is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new Super Hero team, the Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed… whereupon he is overcome with a STRANGE ENERGY and VANISHES!

With Earth’s mightiest super-being missing, it’s time for the World’s Greatest Detective to spring into action. With no time to lose and the entire planet to search, Batman enlists the aid of the fastest man alive, The Flash. Together their high-speed search leads them to the villainous Captain Cold, who is stealing an ancient artifact in Egypt. After the Flash has likewise vanished at the end of their battle with evil, Batman teams up with Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Cyborg to fight famous costumed super-villains before vanishing one-by-one at the hand of a mysterious enemy. It now falls to the Dark Knight, who alone must free the newly- formed Justice League from a powerful foe. But can Batman learn the value of being a team player before the Justice League is lost forever?

I’ll be watching!
