Officially titled 'Friends Are Family - Oh, Hush! feat Will Arnett & Jeff Lewis,' the ending sequence to The Lego Batman Movie is another reminder how fun the installment is. Following on from the incredibly successful 2014 picture The Lego Movie, a feature that boasted the likes of Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Charlie Day, Nick Offerman, Morgan Freeman and Liam Neeson, it would be Will Arnett's caped crusader that earned the spinoff.
The original raked home $469.2m at the box office from their $60m investment. And this sequel from Warner Brothers is tracking at a healthy $186.1m. Now the fans can see what takes place after the movie ends, seeing Batman and Robin get in on a dance and rap routine that is sure to keep viewers humming long after they've streamed the video.
Lego Track Improves Batman v Superman Sequence
A movie from DC that should have taken some cues from their tone was Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a film with so many plot holes it's any wonder Ben Affleck didn't fall into one of them. Thanks to the world of YouTube, the warehouse scene where Bruce Wayne saves Martha (not his mother, but Clark Kent's Martha) has been redeveloped to include the awesome theme song from The Lego Batman Movie.
It certainly makes for hilarious watching. Removing the brooding, dark and serious narrative with the tongue-in-cheek nonsense that took place in the blockbuster. Inserting the lyrics dropped by Will Arnett over the top of the scene, the 'Who's The (Bat)Man' video by Cristian Ortiz makes you wonder if Affleck and Arnett will ever get on stage together to perform their parts of Batman?
Pro-Gay Propaganda Jibe Falls Flat
Heaven forbid anyone wants to have fun with animated Lego characters based on a fictional superhero. But this is the world in which we live. As Voice of the Family founder John-Henry Westen argued that The Lego Batman Movie, of all things, was guilty of perpetuating "pro-gay propaganda."
“It was chock full of pro-gay propaganda. Think the sexual innuendo of the Flintstones minus the real humour," proclaimed Westen on their official website. “It seemed the creators were so anxious to subtly indoctrinate the little ones into the gender ideology that making it humorous came as a distant second thought."
Apparently Westen and his cohorts believe that Robin is the perpetuator of said propaganda, because his character thinks he has two dads - Bruce Wayne and Batman. By not realizing they are the same person, this intimates a gay relationship.
No one from The Lego Batman Movie has commented, nor care to give them the satisfaction of doing so.
