With Superman, Wonder Woman and Green lantern joining the Dark Knight in Lego Batman 2, you're pretty much going to be able to assemble a miniature Justice League in the block-happy sequel. But since when it comes to hero team-ups, four measly characters is barely an appetizer. You'll be happy to know, then, that more characters will apparently be showing up in the game. But it's a little less exciting that find out that extra characters like Damian Wayne, Katana and others will be coming via retailer exclusive pre-orders.
BrickUltra — via a post on French site BrickHeroes</ that links to a German retailer listing for the game — notes that a villain-focused DLC character pack will offer purchasers the chance to play Bizarro, Gorilla Grodd, Black Manta, Captain Cold or Black Adam. The villain DLC can be currently seen on EB Games' Australian portal. Meanwhile, Nightwing, Katana, Damian Wayne, Shazam and Zatanna will make up a the contents of a heroes add-on. For the U.S., Amazon appears to be the outlet offering the Heroes pack but it's not yet announced where the bad-guy exclusive is going to wind up.
Here's hoping you don't have kids who are crazy for backwards-talking magicians and evil psychic gorillas, because if you do, it might mean you're getting two copies of the game from two places.
