When Batgirl and Nightwing take Batman on a trip down memory lane - literally - to visit one of the key mentors from his formative years, it's up to the Justice League to keep Gotham City crime-free. But neither situation proves to be a "vacation" as the Bat trio encounters old nemeses on their adventure, and the Justice League discovers just how busy Batman is on a regular basis. It's a brick-tastic battle on two fronts as Batman, Batgirl and Nightwing take on Bane and Deathstroke, while the Justice League - with some help from a few Teen Titans - fends off an assault by many of Batman's infamous adversaries to ensure Gotham City's safety.
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland joins the cast of LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes - Justice League: Gotham City Breakout as the voice of Batgirl alongside some of the top actors in the industry voicing a quartet of Justice League super heroes: Troy Baker (Batman), Nolan North (Superman), Grey Griffin (Wonder Woman) and Khary Payton (Cyborg). Eric Bauza (Bane), John DiMaggio (Deathstroke), Tom Kenny (Penguin), Jason Spisak (Joker), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn) and Vanessa Marshall (Poison Ivy) comprise the rogues' gallery of villains that Batman and the Justice League must confront. The Teen Titans also join the fray, vocally represented by Will Friedle (Nightwing), Greg Cipes (Beast Boy), Scott Menville (Robin) and Hynden Walch (Starfire). Amy Hill adds to the fun as the voice of Madame Mantis.

"That's life, right?" Adams says in the clip above. "I mean, you want people to like you but like, what is that? I sort of follow Taylor Swift at that point, you know? I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake it off."
We go pretty dark for Batman v Superman - not for everything but when it helps the story. Some of the greatest superheroes ever are at war, and much of the movie takes place at night, so there's no way we were going to go bright and cheery. Despite its comic book origins, we took the project seriously and treated it as such. Dark themes dictate dark visuals.
How would you describe your lighting style for this film, especially for interiors, and was there special consideration for the Batman and Superman costumes?
I embraced hard light a bit more than usual to help convey the harshness and rawness of Gotham at night. There was constant communication in preproduction with the production designer Patrick Tatopoulos, as well as with costume designer Michael Wilkinson, to determine the color palette of the film. We also shot many, many tests of the costumes, and they were refined quite a bit until we were all happy.
Did you take visually separate visual approaches to their alter egos?
Bruce Wayne/Batman was the more dramatic of the dualities. Wayne's distinguished public identity contrasted heavily with his after-dark, vengeful alter ego.

When it comes to the Superman-family titles, it appears as though the New 52 Superman really will be gone... dead... as per the story currently playing out in the comics.
The "Action Comics" description in Previews states that Lex Luthor "beat" Superman and is now intent on replacing him as "protector of Metropolis".
What about Lois Lane?
APPEARING IN: SUPERWOMAN written and drawn by Phil Jimenez
STATUS QUO SHIFT: From star reporter to superhero!
WHY THEY WEAR THE SHIELD: To continue the legacy of Superman and make the world a better place!
I can talk a bit about it, sure - but not much. This is definitely the same Kara you saw in the New 52 SUPERGIRL series, sixteen years old, new to Earth. In story time, she has been on Earth for less than a year, and in that time has gotten into some trouble, be it her skirmish in Siberia when she landed, or her actions as a Red Lantern. But she's putting that anger in the past, and looking forward, thanks to some new friends and a fresh start as seen in SUPERGIRL: REBIRTH.
The book will pick up from Super League, going on right now in the Superman family of books, BUT Super League is not required to pick up SUPERGIRL: REBIRTH, which will set the stage all on its own if you like. As for supporting cast, we'll see some new faces, some faces from previous adventures Kara has had, and one major villain rearing his Cybernetic Head as the Cyborg Superman comes in search of Kara. In the previous series, the readers knew he was Zor-El, but he did not, and Kara did not. Now that information is out, and it changes everything.
Our largest sequences were the Batmobile chase, the kidnapping of Lois and confrontation with Superman and Lex on top of LexCorp tower and the Martha Rescue sequence which includes the warehouse fight.
We were responsible for building the new post MAN OF STEEL Metropolis, Wayne Manor and Washington DC. Also Scanline created the vignettes showing Superman acting on a worldwide basis while the questions raised by his existence are debating on television.
Additionally we had a bit of fun introducing Aquaman's in his cameo.
How did you approach and created the various sequences of Superman saving people?
Zack had a very specific idea for these four long and distinct shots of Superman saving people on a global scale to be woven into a montage of broadcasters debating what it means for the world to have someone like this a part of it. The genesis of each of the vignettes started (as it does with all shots on his films) with a series of storyboards drawn by Zack himself. To refine the ideas art director Jelmer Boskma created a series of illustrations to help define mood, lighting and some of the more specific details of the individual scenes. Being able to go back and forth with Zack in this manner allowed us to narrow our focus as we moved into actual shot production.
The Colorado vignette that was photographed in the backlot of the studio in Michigan with rooftop sets on asphalt. In post we used our flowline software to simulate the river and debris going around the houses. We extended the environment with added extra houses, trees and distant mountain ranges. We ended up replacing the sky to give it a bit more visual interest and as we turn around we added in Superman.
