    Batman (DC Superheroes) 2024 - Rumors & Discussion

    Yeah I mean, I guess I half agree and half disagree. I think it would help the theme overall a ton. But if LEGO is confident enough to keep throwing expensive Keaton-verse sets out there, I'm a bit surprised that a Bugle-style set for Batman seems to be off the table. I don't think there are a ton of people who are big into the Keaton-verse but not Batman as a whole.

    Arkham seems very difficult to do justice at $200. It would barely be better than the 2012 one once you take inflation into account. Doubt we'll ever get a proper D2C Arkham in the mold of the Bugle.

    Court of Owls almost has to be the third film unless they go real sideways in the second. The theme of corruption lends itself well to them. Not really sure who it does for a second movie villain though. I’d love to see an eco-terrorist Poison Ivy but not sure how it would work. The Batman is weird because it never really precludes the franchise from going in a more comic book direction than a grounded one, but it’s shot in a way where if clayface or Mr Freeze show up in the second one it would feel incredibly strange.

    He doesn't mean "after" in respect to release date. He means TDK is the only Batman film better than it.

    lol massive L across the board. Even the good set is overpriced. Can’t help but feel at this point that there’s a clause in the license agreement that says they can back out if sets don’t sell well enough.

    Wonder if the Mr. Freeze and Phantasm figures that were initially rumored for the skyline end up in the mystery set. I highly doubt the Batmobile is the 4+ set, but that will probably just end up with the Joker (which for the first time ever I'm not mad about because it'll be the best ever version of the character).

    I mean, they have a point with their gripe about the quality of the figs. A lot of lack of printing for a $500 set, too many repeats, and the Kevin Feige thing is just weird. But yeah it's also odd to see people complain about the lack of some obscure Iron-Man variant or the need for a mini-fig sized Ant-Man.

    I will be tweeting “D2C Arkham Asylum” at the official LEGO account until I am either given what I want or am blocked. This is my kamikaze mission.

    Can't remember but I'm pretty sure you're right.

    Lol but do you really want a set like that? I've seen it for like 50% off at my local drug store.

    There was also The Bat, and the Joker ice cream truck chase was clearly a stand in for the semi-truck scene from the TDK. But to the broader point, I don't think there's much you can do with the Nolan trilogy. The latter movies are set in what's clearly just Chicago /Pittsburgh, not exactly ideal for a set. Maybe a monorail car with a short segment of track with Ra's and Gordon? Idk. Hard to fault LEGO for not doing more with the Nolanverse.

    As much as BB might be my favorite superhero movies (and in my top few all time favorite movies), the asylum from that universe is a bit boring. I feel like they should go the comic route of a big gothic building on a cliff or island, in the manner of BTAS. Hell, even Batman Forever would be an acceptable inspiration.

    My problem with this is I feel that Wayne Manor is sort of like the X-Mansion in that the building is iconic because of who it's home to, not because of anything interesting about the house itself (outside of being on top of the Batcave and Cerebro, respectively), and there are too many varying designs in media to make any singular portrayal instantly recognizable as being either manor. And if we take the X-Mansion leak to be true, then LEGO feels the same. Sure, you can point to things like the Daily Bugle that also aren't really noted for their inside, but LEGO was able to meme-ify that set enough to where it didn't really matter. I have a hard time seeing them putting a two-story gothic manor on top of a Batcave and keeping that price (or combined price) under like $800. Maybe they could do what they did with the Home Alone set and make the manor like half as deep? But then what footprint does that leave for the cave? I guess at this point LEGO isn't afraid to get nutty with their prices and sizes, so it isn't entirely unreasonable. But I still think it's very, very unlikely.

    I mean, in this scenario I'm assuming we'd get like a small fraction of the manor, not an entire house. No, there was certainly effort, but Gringotts is clearly on a whole other level.

    I've always thought the manor on top of the Batcave would be extremely difficult to pull off considering how inherently boring the former is compared to the latter, but after seeing Gringotts I'm convinced they could do it. If 1/10th the effort that went into Gringotts went into the Batcave I would've bought it day one.
