Batman (real name Bruce Wayne) is a major character in The LEGO movie series. Throughout his theatrical lifetime, he has served as one of the two tritagonists (the other one being Vitruvius) in The LEGO Movie, the main protagonist in The LEGO Batman Movie, and a supporting character in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
Just like every version of Batman, Bruce Wayne lost his parents when he was really young, which made him develop a fear of being part of a family again. Years later, he started fighting crime as "Batman". In The LEGO Movie universe, he was fighting crime for at least 51 years at the time The LEGO Batman Movie came out, as Alfred remembers him going through a "weird phase" in 1966. He ended up with many villains to fight over the years.
Batman is Wildstyle's ex-boyfriend, and he fought alongside her, her current boyfriend and his friend Emmet Brickowski, and his fellow Master Builders and the citizens of Bricksburg against Lord Business's forces. He married Queen Watevra Wa-nabi who is the main false antagonist and the supporting protagonist of The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
The LEGO Movie Edit
Batman is one of the main characters in The LEGO Movie. He saves Emmet, Vitruvius, and Wyldstyle in the old west. He accompanies them on their mission to bring down Lord Business. As time wears on, Lucy begins to fall for Emmet which Batman notices, but doesn't mind. In the end, he gives his blessing for her to be with the hero she deserved.
The LEGO Batman Movie Edit
Batman is back in Gotham, dealing with his Rogue Gallery. Along the way, he meets Batgirl and Robin who become a part of his family, along with Alfred. Though it takes him a while to open up and accept them as family due to fear of losing more people he cared for.
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part Edit
Batman is back in Bricksburg, now Apocalypsberg after his "solo adventure." However, Sweet Mayhem kidnaps him, Metalbeard, Unikitty, Lucy, and Benny to take them to the Systar System. There, Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi plans to wed Batman to unite their worlds and to prevent Our-mom-aggedon, believing him to be the leader. Batman is very off-put by the idea of marriage but agrees to the wedding to outdo Superman when Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi claimed he was her first choice.
Batman is often seen at the surface level, criticized for his lack of care for other's well-being. After the death of his biological parents, Bruce himself had grown far apart from others and strives to protect himself from losing any loved ones again, leaving him very lonely as a result. Especially before his change in The LEGO Batman Movie, he attempted to cover his insecurities with snarky humor or childish disobedience (much to the dismay of Alfred). After days of action and excitement, while the whole city would celebrate Batman's heroic actions, he found that hiding within the depths of his manor would ease his mind away from the stress of risking those he loved.
He finds his truest form of companionship when he meets Queen Watevra Wa-Nabi, whom he was arranged to marry to reunite his world with her's in peace. He wasn't interested at first, but his ego gets the better of him when she sings about preferring Superman. Afterwards, he proposes to her to prove that he's better. Despite a non-altruistic start, he comes to feel a connection with her when he hears how she was also lonely living in a palace with only a fussy British servant and nobody to relate to her. With her influence, he becomes a more cheerful person and happily marries her in the end, successfully uniting their worlds. loves weightlifting.
- During the song Gotham City Guys, all of the actors who've played Batman get mentioned. George Clooney, Val Kilmer, Christine Bale, Adam West, Ben Affleck, and Michael Keaton.
- Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi's true form reveals that she was the peace offering Emmet gave the DUPLO.
- In The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part, when the Justice League tries to hunt the DUPLO Invaders, Wonder Woman says Batman is off on a solo adventure - referencing The LEGO Batman Movie. Later, Emmet asks him about it, and he notes that he's loved, lost, and learned about family, but he's back on his own. This connects the timeline and acknowledges the events of said film as canon.
- When everyone meets Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi for the first time, she's in a horse form. She offers to change to something else if they're uncomfortable and changes into an octopus-like monstrosity. However, Batman tells her to go back, saying the horse was a lot more "palatable". At the end of the film, Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi is in her horse form again, and Batman is riding on her back.
Unlike most LEGO minifigures, Batman has a flesh tone skin color and a jawline. He has short black hair and is depicted as muscular.
Batman wears black latex suit with black and yellow bat logo on his chest, yellow utility belt black cape and black cowl with two long, pointy ears. In The LEGO Movie, his eyes are just white, but in The LEGO Batman Movie, they glow and have slight blue shade in them, which carries over into LEGO Movie 2. In The LEGO Batman Movie, Batman's utility belt is a separate piece, rather than printed on his torso.
As Bruce WayneEdit
In The LEGO Movie, his hair is fully groomed and he wears a grayish-blue suit, grayish-blue vest, white shirt, and green tie.
In The LEGO Batman Movie, his hair is mostly messy (mostly due to him being shown right after he takes off his cowl), and he wears a white tuxedo and black bow-tie.
