He’s the world’s greatest detective. He has unlimited wealth. He has no parents. These are but a few of Batman’s incredible attributes. Okay, maybe that third one is just sad, but that sadness developed into an obsessive that fuels his very quest for justice! While Batman is universally appreciated as one of, if not the, best superheroes around, he has one ability that too often goes unnoticed and unappreciated. To get to the bottom of this mystery, we sent our intrepid reporter, Hector Navarro, to interview the cast of The LEGO Batman Movie (in which everything is awesome, according to Luke Y. Tompson’s review), and he asked the hard-hitting questions.
Will Arnett finally revealed which of Batman’s skills deserves more accolade and acclaim; director Chris McKay explained why they chose to take a more lighthearted approach to the Dark Knight; producer Dan Lin revealed why they cast Rosario Dawson as Batgirl; Michael Cera told us about what makes his Dick so special (Dick Grayson, you perverts); and Zach Galifianakis chimed in on what it was like to become the most iconic super-villain of all time.But Hector wasn’t content with merely interviewing the live-action stars of the film. He wanted to speak to the brick-based lifeforms that actually starred in it, too. Here is Hector’s interview with the Batman himself:
