In a new video featuring actor Christopher Lloyd reprising his famous role as Doc Brown from the Back to the Future films, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed today gameplay featuring even more beloved characters coming to LEGO Dimensions, the upcoming entertainment experience that merges physical LEGO brick building with interactive console gameplay. In addition to LEGO Batman, LEGO Gandalf and Wyldstyle, the three minifigure heroes used to start the experience, LEGO Dimensions will allow gamers to customise their experience post-launch and throughout the first half of 2016 with additional packs from the previously announced brands, including: DC Comics Team Pack featuring LEGO Joker and LEGO Harley Quinn minifigures, three additional DC Comics Fun Packs featuring LEGO Superman, LEGO Aquaman and LEGO Bane minifigures, Back to the Future Fun Pack with LEGO Doc Brown minifigure and two additional LEGO Ninjago Fun Packs with Sensei Wu and Lloyd minifigures.
These highly collectible Team Packs and Fun Packs will provide new buildable characters, vehicles, tools and gadgets, as well as special in-game abilities. All expansion packs provide gamers the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game, in any world with any character - there are no limitations.
Players can bring up to seven characters, vehicles and weapons into the LEGO Dimensions game all at once by placing them on the LEGO Toy Pad to create extreme gameplay cross-overs, such as LEGO Superman piloting the LEGO DeLorean Time Machine through Hill Valley or LEGO Doc Brown fighting alongside LEGO Bane in New Ninjago City.
Future expansion pack purchases will continue to work with the LEGO Dimensions Starter Pack, even in the spring of next year. No compatibility chart necessary.

AARON KUDER: Hmm, “Reaction” might not be the best word here. We developed the changes together. It’s not like we were presented with the idea/project, and told to make it happen. We logged more than a few hours on the phone, flying to various time zones, and scratching our noggins over this one...
GREG PAK: All of the Superman book writers and editors met over a several months to hammer out the big plan here, so these changes come out of many, many hours of working and talking and pacing and thinking - and we're thrilled with how it's all coming together.
In our last big get-together, Aaron was drawing while we were talking, so as we came up with the big ideas for the huge changes in Clark's life, the character was literally coming to life on Aaron's tablet. It was a kind of surreal experience, and I think everyone in the room felt it when we saw it - this was something new and at the same time something that felt absolutely true to the character and a perfect next step. This is a Superman we've all been dying to write. The story's real and visceral and emotional and thrilling and we hope you'll come along for the ride.
The "Truth" storyline begins in ACTION COMICS #41 and continues in SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, BATMAN/SUPERMAN.
As we reported yesterday, the current May issue of Variety features actors Grant Gustin (The Flash) and Melissa Benoist (Supergirl) alongside Greg Berlanti, the executive producer of both shows.
In the interview associated with this issue, we find out why Greg Berlanti wanted to being Supergirl to our TV screens and why Melissa Benoist was his first and only choice to play the part.
A comics heroine has been long overdue - even Berlanti's nieces have been nagging him - so when DC pitched him on the concept, he was intrigued. But rather than keep the show in the vein of what had been done before, he wanted to take a proportional leap. "With what we accomplished and learned from 'The Flash,'?" he says, "if we could do that on an even larger scale, on a bigger network, what would that look like?"
CBS, he reports, jumped at the chance. He says entertainment prexy Nina Tassler fell in love with "Supergirl" at the pitch meeting, so much so that she started to cry. "It didn't matter at that point what they were going to pay for it," he says. "That's who you want buying the show." (Despite the rumor mill, Berlanti says there was never a chance of the show moving to the CW. Plus, he adds, "We would never have been able to afford the kind of budget we have.")
As with "The Flash," Berlanti has insisted "Supergirl" invest heavily in visual effects, and [Geoff] Johns calls the money well spent.
"When people see the pilot, they'll be blown away by what's accomplished on television," says the DC content topper. "But Greg knows that it's not just about spectacle. It has to be about heart; it has to be about humor."
Casting is paramount to Berlanti: He calls the show's star, Melissa Benoist, the "Annie Hall" of superheroes.
"The most important decision you can make as a showrunner when you're doing a pilot is who's in it, and who's directing it," he says. "If we had not found her, I would have said, 'I don't want to make this.'?"

Like the last issue, there is a lot of wasted space. In twenty pages, the team crashes into the KC base, fights, and dies. The writer attempts to spice things up with traitors and twists. But the issue still reads painfully straightforward.

Better late than never. This story finally feels like a DCU event. The skies are red, the Monitor is watching, and the "in-continuity" heroes are on the job. (Well they're standing around, but they're on the page at least).
As refreshing as this issue is, it still feels hollow. Whoever has been helping Jeff King - Scott Lobdell this week - orchestrate the characters and plot points necessary for a company wide crossover, they have not helped him acclimate to the subtle art of comic book scripting.

I have a few ideas. I know generally who the big bad villain is. I know about Supergirl's relationships. The whole team has given me a lot of freedom to create her as my own.
Do you feel any pressure?
Of course I do, but not in a negative way. I'm not necessarily a person who works well under pressure. But in this situation, I am so excited about it. I'm not going to let myself doing anything less than what I think people will want to see.
What does it feel like to play a superhero?
Not like what you would expect! There are the moments you feel like a badass and you feel empowered. You feel strong and confident. But I have to say there are moments when I step back and look at the bigger picture and I'm on the set with fire and explosions and I'm in the suit and I'll have to do a doubletake and be like, "What am I doing?" This is hilarious and surreal and amazing.
