Now, way back in 2008, with the release of the original Lego Batman game, there wasn't a whole lot of buzz surrounding Lego, or even - compared to now - about superheroes in general.

After all, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was yet to find its feet - that was the same year of Iron Man's release - and the iconic Lego games (now beloved by millions) had yet to expand much beyond Lego Star Wars.

Now, though, times have changed - and from the looks of the recent post-credits sting in Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, we might now even be set to see the greatest superhero extravaganza of them all...

A Marvel and DC Lego.

So, like this, but blockier. And with less Superboy
So, like this, but blockier. And with less Superboy

The reason?

Well, that goes all the way back to Lego Marvel Superheroes, which ended with this intriguing moment...

Which seemed to suggest that a Lego Batman cameo was imminent...

Only for it to end up being the prince of Wakanda himself, The Black Panther...

And, then, of course, not all that long after, we saw Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.

Which, (SPOILER alert), ends with this silhouette...

Which sure looks an awful lot like Black Widow, Spider-Man, Captain America, The Hulk , Thor, Iron Man and Hawkeye.

The only hitch?

It was actually Black Canary, Nightwing, Aquaman, Swamp Thing, Shazam, Booster Gold and Green Arrow, all along.

The clear hint, though?

The Next Step is a Marvel/DC crossover

After all, though the games are published by Warner Bros. Interactive Games, the company's deal with Lego also grants them access to the Marvel universe's characters - as well as Warner Bros.' DC back catalog.

And, with pretty much every major Marvel and DC character already collected in Lego Marvel Superheroes and Lego Batman 3, there's not a whole lot else to tease other than a crossover.

So, the big question?


Will we be seeing that Lego Marvel/DC crossover game any time soon?
