It would've also featured Batman and Superman’s relationship, as well as Batman’s relationship to a lot of the other members of the Justice League. Lex Luthor and OMAC would have been the film's main antagonists.

Why It Was Cancelled
- Even though the first film was both critically and commercially successful, both The Lego Ninjago Movie and The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part were box office disappointments, causing Warner Bros. to end their movie deal with Lego in December 2019. Not only that, but Warner Bros. owns the rights to the characters from DC Comics, thus ending any chances of the sequel happening.
- The Lego Batman Movie 2 was permanently cancelled and the first film is stand-alone.
- On December 19, 2019, Universal Pictures and The LEGO Group were in talks to sign a five-year exclusive deal to develop new LEGO films, which was finalized on April 23, 2020.
