If you’ve seen THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, you know it’s FULL of Batman Easter eggs throughout – some obvious, some very subtle. However, director Chris McKay revealed another one that was likely the “biggest” of them all, yet flew totally under the radar: Lego Gotham City was based on Chicago. Dig this…

Word.

Gotta admit that I didn't pick that up while watching the movie (several times). Of course, Christophter Nolan shot part of BATMAN BEGINS in Chicago, while virtually all of THE DARK KNIGHT was filmed in the Windy City.

Check out Chris McKay's Twitter page for more of the film’s Easter eggs revealed by the director himself. Also, if you missed BOF’s interview with Mr. McKay for THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, you can listen via the player below.
