Will Arnett revealed in an interview about how voicing Batman affected his voice, saying, "It's real gravelly; it doesn't feel great doing it a lot. And so when we do the sessions that are like four hours long, it would hurt. It's hard to sing doing it because I'm a bad singer anyway, so I'm thinking about trying to keep in time and then doing the voice. The rap at the end of the movie was hard. [I told the song writers] this is how it's going to be; I can't do it any better. And then all the things they call 'exertions' like running, jumping--you have to do all those kind of separately and sort of shouting stuff too. To shout doing the Batman voice is rough." See more »
In The LEGO Movie (2014), the Swamp Creature was one of the Master Builders. However, in this film, he's in the Phantom Zone. It's doubtful that a Master Builder would go about committing crimes punishable by banishment to the Phantom Zone. See more »
Black. All important movies start with a black screen... And music... Edgy, scary music that would make a parent or studio executive nervous... And logos... Really long and dramatic logos... Warner Bros. Why not "Warner Brothers"? I don't know... DC... The house that Batman built. Yeah, what, Superman? Come at me, bro. I'm your Kryptonite... Hmm... Not sure what RatPac does, but that logo is macho. I dig it... Okay. Get yourself ready for some... reading. "If you want ...

The movie's closing credits involved Oh, Hush!'s song "Friends Are Family". The main title of the movie appears at the end of the song, before Batman covers the camera afterwards while commenting. See more »
It's odd that this would be the movie that takes a look back at 78 years of batman and says... yeah it's silly, LET'S CELEBRATE IT ALL!!!
I actually thought some of the characters in this movie were just a joke but nope, there really was a condiment king in the batman comics that walked around with a ketchup and mustard guns, there was a character called "the Eraser" that looked like a pencil!
Best of all was the most iconic villain from batman, the Joker! Just replace the word "hate" with "love" and it's a rom-com between the two with batman refusing to commit and Joker feeling like his "hate" was only one sided and he deserves better, Hilarious!!!
They actually reference all of batman from the silly TV show of the 60's, the bam and kapow that pop up in the comics when he hits someone, his dark night trilogy, you name it it's there... and sometimes they'd even play some footage!
If you know anything, really anything at all about batman then I'd recommend you watch this movie. age doesn't matter. The one flaw I could think of was how fast this was going with the jokes, at times I wish it would slow down because another one comes in before I was even done laughing at the previous joke.
10/10 and yay for parody not being dead!
