New Lego Batman 2 Trailer Tells All

It's the moment of truth. Sticks and stones and Bane can break my bones, but can words commit the most insidious crime of all by sapping the charm from Legos? Are these tiny torch-bearers of the mantra "actions speak louder than words" truly meant to sprout tiny, block-shaped vocal cords? Perhaps, I fear, we've gone too far. Maybe Lego Batman 2 should be a series of text prompts and color-coded meters. Or maybe it should take the form of a bucket filled with tiny plastic bricks and imagination. There is, however, no turning back now. I can see the trailer signal shining from just beyond the break. I suppose it's time.

Huh. Well, that was pretty much delightful. The villains sounded suitably insane, but the superbanter between Batman and a joyously jerky Superman stole the show. I am now cautiously excited - especially given that 500 square miles of rain-slick, noir-flavored plastic await. And hey, it's out on June 27, which means I'll know if I'll need to fast-track my obtuse, buggy Lego Batman text adventure into production very, very soon.
