Today at the New York Comic Con, LEGO DC hosted a panel unveiling Warner Bros. Animation, DC Entertainment and The LEGO Group’s latest direct-to-video animated movie, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Cosmic Clash. The panel was moderated by DC All Access co-host Tiffany Smith. And the panel consisted of Troy Baker (Batman), Phil LaMarr (Brainiac), producer Brandon Vietti, director Rick Morales and screenwriter Jim Krieg.
The next LEGO DC collaboration marks the fourth LEGO DC Comics film after LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League and LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Attack of the Legion of Doom! Our heroes will face off this time against the menace Brainiac. They will also get assistance this time from the Legion of Superheroes.
Phil LaMarr gave some insight during the panel on how his version of Brainiac will be portrayed — Brainiac will have duplicate versions of himself. “1.2 is a little different from 1.3, and 1.4 is slacker Brainiac,” he said.
Troy Baker revealed that the cast doesn’t always do recordings together, and that he often wouldn’t realize how funny his lines were until he saw the finished piece. “I was once told, don’t try to make it funnier; the script is great,” said Baker.
LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Cosmic Clash is scheduled for release in 2016.
