Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League Announced
As a followup to the Lego Batman movie, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League will be available on Blu-ray (list price $24.98), DVD ($19.98), and digital on February 10, 2015.
The purchase version of the movie will come with an exclusive Batzarro minifigure while supplies last. The direct-to-home-video movie is described as “action-packed and hilarious”, and I have to admit, based on the trailer below, the alternate Justice League versions are pretty funny, if broadly drawn. The plot is:
Batman has joined the newly formed Justice League in order to keep tabs on Superman, a mistrust that is complicated by Superman’s clumsy — but well-meaning — clone, Bizarro. Bizarro’s creation of the Bizarro League has caused confusion amongst the world’s greatest Super Heroes, but an even greater and mysterious threat may force the Justice League and Bizarro League to band together to defeat evil.
The special features on this release include the TV special Lego DC Comics: Batman: Be-Leaguered, a featurette on Bizarro, and bloopers. Here’s the trailer, featuring Greenzarro and Bizarra, among others:
(Surprised, in a kids’ movie, to see Green Lantern Guy Gardner refer to a frightened character as “such a pussycat”, since it seems to be a really obvious placeholder for something else, but I suppose that’s a skill in writing for all ages — hide the stuff only adults will get.)
