Marvel, DC meet LEGO for the League of Little Superheroes

Superheroes are coming to the world of LEGO, as the Danish toy company signed deals with DC Comics and Marvel Entertainment this month that will allow their characters to be used in a LEGO Super Heroes line. Lego already has a Batman line, but the deal with DC gives them access to every character in the DC canon, including Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern. The Marvel line will focus on the Avengers, the X-Men and Spider-Man, and it will launch in May 2012, at the same time The Avengers movie opens. Both the Marvel and the DC line will include both minifigures and buildable figures.

Update: JK Parkin returns from Comic-Con with pictures from the LEGO booth! Check’em out after the jump.

Sooo…. could they possibly be in the same game together?

Much to my 7-year-old’s chagrin, Lego stopped making the Batman stuff years ago. So this is great news!

thats awesome

Best news ever, and I’m so glad they’re getting heroes from both companies. Nothing would have been worse than having to use your Lego brand Batman next to your Megablox Spider-man.

I saw the Wonder Woman figure, she’s adorable! Gotta get one for myself.

Lego Justice League game? One can only hope.

I’m looking forward to Lego Ambush Bug.

You know what this means? LEGO is now the first company since Mego to produce toys for BOTH of the Big Two.
