Chris Mckay in talks to direct Nightwing movie

39;The Lego Batman Movie'

For example, two men adopting a son together sounds like a dream come true to Richard, the orphan Bruce Wayne adopts without telling him he's Batman.

In the midst of the recent string of all too gritty, all too dark, all too real DC Comics movies, The Lego Batman Movie is a breath of fresh air.

The Lego Batman Movie is one of those films that does not take itself so seriously that it can not be fun, while also taking itself seriously just enough to put out a compelling story that will keep the audience engaged.

With the current state of the DC Extended Universe in limbo, Warner Bros. seems to be rallying behind the Bat Family. Very much like "The Lego Movie", a lot of the humor here is self-referential, however in this case, not only does it feel more prominent, but it works a bit better. Hopefully, Warner Bros. will lay some backstories and groundworks for their upcoming films and will learn from their past mistakes. There are also a list of easter eggs that specifically deal with Batman's film and television history. If you are a Batman fan, a lover of animation or are just looking for a good time, then "The Lego Batman Movie" is a must see. And coincidentally, McKay has already directed Nightwing in The Lego Batman Movie. The film also has several voice cameos, such as Conan O'Brien, Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Billy Dee Williams and Mariah Carey.

But we are now in a new age when it comes to DC Comics on film. If you hate Batman, go see this movie. This will be McKay's first foray into live-action filmmaking.

Hard-line conservatives have always been critical of Hollywood's family films, complaining that they promote a liberal agenda; and truth be told, in many cases this is not an entirely unfounded accusation.

After saving Gotham time and time again from villains like Bain, Penguin, Riddler and the infamous enemy Joker (Zach Galifinakis), LEGO Batman (Will Arnett) finds himself holed up alone in Wayne Manor, eating microwave lobster on his private watercraft.
