Batman is ready to fight crime brick by brick.

An official clip from Lego Batman: The Movie - DC Superheroes Unite shows an unmasked Bruce Wayne in his bat cave receiving a call from Martian Manhunter from the Justice League's Watchtower, only to be interrupted by emergency sirens.

The Warner Bros./DC Entertainment full-length film, based on the video game series, tells the story of Lex Luthor becoming jealous of billionaire Wayne as he wins the Man of the Year Award. To top his accomplishment, Lex campaigns for President and recruits the Joker to perfect a Black Lego Destructor Ray to wreak havoc on Gotham. When Lex successfully destroys Batman's technology, the caped crusader turns to Superman for help.
