The Lego Batman Movie: Dick Grayson

legodickgrayson

I am approaching The Lego Batman Movie with a bit of trepidation. I love Will Arnett’s version of Batman.  I am amazed at how many Z-list villains appear in this movie (Condiment King! Really?).  And Billy Dee Williams finally gets to be Two-Face.

But then there’s my favorite character of all time, Dick Grayson.  This movie’s take is very, very different and more than a bit silly.  And somehow, his over-the-top optimistic outlook is endearing.

I picked up the Dick Grayson Lego figure from the movie’s blind bag series.  He comes with the infamous Bat Shark Repellent from the ’66 movie.  Actually, the L-shaped yellow handle is pretty easy to feel through the blind bag, so it’s easy to figure out which package has this figure.

The great thing about the Batman Family is that they work in so many radically different interpretations. And since so many versions have been so dark, I’m looking forward a new version that isn’t afraid to poke fun at itself.
