With two trailers already released a year before its release, the Lego Batman film firmly within the public consciousness. Collider recently sat down with the films producers, The Lego Movie Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, to discuss the films development.
Speaking about the film’s director Chris McKay, Lord and Miller had unsurprisingly nothing but a positive view of the filmmaker.
Miller: “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.”
Lord: “And he has a very large Catwoman tattoo on his forearm.”
On the actual film itself, the producers gave us a little peak into what to expect from it’s structure.
Miller: “So, it is chock full of stuff for Batman aficionados. It is just a 90-minute Easter egg.”
Lord: “And it heavily honors the comics. So, it covers all the way through to Batman v Superman”
Miller: “All the way through and to the future”
