The critical praise that The Lego Batman has received is proof that Warner Bros. does know how to handle at least one cinematic angle for the Caped Crusader. It has come at the perfect time, too. That’s because Batman’s involvement in the DC Extended Universe has never been more tumultuous, with the revelation that Ben Affleck won’t be directing The Batman now followed by speculation that he doesn’t even want to star. And that’s before we even discuss the poor reviews for both Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Suicide Squad.
But it turns out that there are actually lessons that the DC Extended Universe could take from The Lego Batman Movie. Need specifics? Of course you do. Here are 5 things that the DC Extended Universe can learn from _The Lego Batman Movie. _
We’ve hardly seen Ben Affleck crack a smile as Bruce Wayne, let alone tell a joke or make us laugh. The Lego Batman Movie obviously, was at the complete other end of the spectrum, because Will Arnett’s incarnation of the Caped Crusader made us chortle with pretty much everything he said. Lego Batman seemed to be having a lot more fun than Affleck’s much more serious version. And while we don’t need to hear Batman telling knock-knock jokes, it would be nice to hear him dropping him some quips in the future as he lays the smackdown. Thankfully the trailers for the Justice League suggest that the DC Extended Universe has learned from the error of their ways, and he’ll be doing just that (or allowing The Flash to steal some scenes) in November’s blockbuster.
