Have you ever wanted a peek into the lives of the elite of Gotham City? How about where Bruce Wayne, a real rad but totally down to earth billionaire, hangs his hat every night? Well, Happy Friday, because we've got that exact video for you! The LEGO Batman Movie is just a short week away, and marketing is pulling out all the stops with this MTV Cribs inspired short touring the Lego-ized Wayne Manor. It's as affluent as it is humble so check out the video below.
Framed as another episode of Gotham Cribs, Batman takes his fans on a sick tour of the most tasteful and insanely extravagant mansion in all of Gotham City. The spacious living room is filled with wall to wall pictures, with portraits of Thomas and Martha Wayne looming large over one of at least three massive fireplaces. Statues of gold, marble, and mammoths adorn the living room, while a massive (also golden?) chandelier hanging above. And yes, the rumors are true: Batman is Bruce Wayne's roommate, which is why there are so many bat-themed objects lying around. Batman then passes it over to his roommate "B-Money" to take the tour from there.
We get to see looks at the Wayne Manor state of the art kitchen, Bruce Wayne's bedroom, and a gigantic pool filled with pet dolphins. In an increasingly unwise but hilarious decision, Bruce Wayne and Batman continue to switch places through the clip, not doing a real great job at the secret identity thing. The rest of the video is filled with great jokes, like Bruce Wayne forgetting what a spoon is called and calling the massive bedroom "quaint." The two men (who are actually the same man) continually stroking the other's ego, never gets old and justifies all on its own why we even needed The LEGO Batman Movie.
If this video is any indication, The LEGO Batman Movie looks like it's going to be incredibly funny, while at the same time taking Batman down a peg. It's such a fresh concept for a Batman movie, which are for the most part pretty serious affairs. It's nice to see that something is having a lot of fun with the Caped Crusader and his cocky too-sure-of-himself ego is genius.
Spinning off from The LEGO Movie, Will Arnett's Batman gets an adventure big enough to match his own ego. the movie follows Batman as he's suddenly saddled with an orphan (Michael Cera) who joins him in his crusade against crime as the joyful Robin -- to Batman's dismay. Teaming up with Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson) and his butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes), Batman must stop a new scheme from the Joker (Zach Galifianakis).
You can catch Batman and his amazing crib when The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters next week on February 10.
