Minifig Theater is a new YouTube series dedicated to creating small LEGO-inspired vignettes of popular TV shows and films, and its first release is a LEGO Batman video. It is an incredibly funny and pop culture-savvy short that lifts elements and characters from both The Dark Knight and Man of Steel.
The short starts as a dialogue-free re-enactment of the infamous interrogation scene between Batman and the Joker after Harvey Dent and Rachel Dawes are kidnapped. Batman savagely beats the Joker while the Gotham police force look on with some concern over the violet torture tactics being used. The silly nature of the vignette become increasingly apparent when Batman pops the Joker's LEGO arms out of its sockets. This memorable Batman LEGO video ends with a hilarious twist involving Man of Steel's Superman and a jab at one of the most controversial scenes from that film.
