Cartoon Network has announced that a brand new special featuring Batman in LEGO form will be airing on the network later this month. The special entitled LEGO DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered will air on October 27 at 6PM ET/PT.
The movie special is written by Jim Krieg and produced by Brandon Vietti. World’s Finest has the description for the show:
Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man-band. Just ask anyone; Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred… anyone. So, he is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new superhero team, The Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed… whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes!
World’s Finest states the the episode will air as part of Cartoon Network’s “Hallo-Week” which includes a number of special programming.
A trailer has been posted by the UK Cartoon Network account, which seems the special aired earlier this month given the date listed in the description for the video:
