Lego’s ‘Justice League’ sets may confirm a big character reveal


“Justice League” is still months away from forming on movie screens, but while we wait, Lego is debuting its movie tie-in sets that showcase the new team in action.

And yes, these sets definitely could be packing a potential character reveal for the film, so consider this your SPOILER WARNING if you’re concerned about seeing something too soon.


Still here? Well, if these Lego sets, unveiled Thursday, are to be believed, it looks like Superman (Henry Cavill) is somehow coming back to life following his death at the end of “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

To be fair, Cavill has been teasing social media with photos of the Superman suit, and DC comics’ lore is full of heroes dying and then returning to life. He’s also been reported as being on the “Justice League” set last year, so perhaps seeing him in Lego form now isn’t all that surprising.


The Man of Steel will be one of the minifigures in the Flying Fox: Batmobile Airlift Attack set, which also includes Cyborg, Batman, Wonder Woman, two Parademons and a big figure of the villain Steppenwolf. The set consists of 955 pieces, costs $130 in the US (roughly converting to £100 and AU$170) and will be available on Aug. 1.


Two other “Justice League”-themed sets are also coming on Aug. 1. The Battle of Atlantis set focuses in on Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and consists of an underwater Atlantis scene made up of 197 pieces for $20 (roughly £15 and AU$25).

And the Knightcrawler Tunnel Attack set stars Batman (Ben Affleck) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) as they battle two Parademons to reclaim an item called the Motherbox.

The Knightcrawler vehicle features four posable limbs, dual 6-stud rapid shooters and an opening cockpit for Batman. This set is made up of 622 pieces and will cost $50 (roughly £40 and AU$65).

“Justice League” debuts on Nov. 17 in the US and UK and on Nov. 16 in Australia.
