According to Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, there is no more anticipated movie than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which arrives on March 25, 2016. Now there is one more thing to anticipate: a whole line of LEGO Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
Since 2014, it's been known that there would be LEGO products for the huge superhero film. However, no sets have been revealed...until now.
A new report from The Wall Street Journal states that a set featuring Batman will be shown at San Diego Comic-Con 2015.
The Lego DC Super Heroes New Batmobile set includes 306 pieces, two “stud shooters” and opening doors, a new Batman outfit deco, two additional unnamed characters and an additional vehicle. It will retail for $29.99.
As you can see, an image of part of the set has been revealed. It's similar to the first photo we saw of Ben Affleck as the Batman. The new Batman figure is unlike any of the previous Batman mini-figures. This one now has boots printed on, the huge belt, seams, and the new logo.
The LEGO Batmobile is also pretty accurate. Though we cannot see the interior yet, I'm pretty sure it will only seat one mini-figure, which has happened with the past few LEGO Batmobiles. Nonetheless, this will be an amazing set.
Now, who could the other two characters be? I would assume that Batman would have someone to fight. The obvious candidate is Superman, but surprisingly, the two icons have never been in a LEGO set together, which is a way to get more money from customers. With that being said, it's still very possible our Man of Steel can make an appearance. After all, there was a $13 Man of Steel set with the two big characters of the movie, Superman and Zod.
Another possibility is a villain other than Lex Luthor, but we can only speculate the other villains. There could also be guards or police in this set, possibly aiding or stopping Batman.
If you're wondering when we can buy this, the answer is January 1, 2016. Fortunately, this isn't any exclusive Comic-Con set, though it will be previewed at this year's Comic-Con.
I will be posting another post where I will be listing things to expect at this year's DC Cinematic Universe presentation. You can stay tuned by following me.
What do you think? Who might be the other unnamed characters? What other vehicle could be in this set? Excited for Batman v Superman? Add your thoughts.
