Collider caught up with The LEGO Batman Movie producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller for an update on the movie. And right off the bat (no pun intended), it sounds like director Chris McKay is the right guy for the job!
“Chris McKay, the director of the movie, is a real Batman aficionado and knows really arcane stuff that was only in one issue of the comic book in 1972, and that sort of thing,” Miller said. “And he has a very large Catwoman tattoo on his forearm,” Lord added.
So what can fans expect? A giant 90-minute long Easter egg full of references from the comics, all the way up through the movies, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!
“So, it is chock full of stuff for Batman aficionados. It is just a 90-minute Easter egg,” Miller explained. “And it heavily honors the comics. So, it covers all the way through to Batman v Superman,” Lord concluded.
The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters on February 10, 2017.
