It makes no sense...
I don't know how or why Batman has remained so consistently popular that everything needs to constantly be tainted by his presence. Captain Marv... er, 'Shazam', would have been better suited to a JL set with his contemporaries, but of course the entire DC summer line up needs to be Batman. So, here we are with yet another awkward scenario.
At least it will play out a little more favorably at my house, with 'Shazam' hanging out with the JL while Batman and the rest of this set will be swiftly pitched into the Bin of Storage with all of the other Bat-crap Lego has foisted on me. :p
You've got 3 guys, a cop, a "super" hero full of gadgets and a semi-Superman chasing a normal dude in a helicopter. Overkill. If the three of them were chasing Thanos in his helicopter, I'd understand, and it would make for an interesting crossover (insert Captain Marvel/Shazam pun here).
Not that I expect LEGO would listen to me but I would LOVE to see a Legion of Superheroes series. Of course that would likely clash with the Star Wars Theme with space ships and what not - but most of the elements are already in place. Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl are easy. Even Wildfire, Dawnstar, Blok and possible just with paints of current elements - and the rest is just printing (Other than Quislet and Tellus).
A Legion series with a Time displaced Superman/Boy and Batman or other Justice Leaguers using a Time Sphere (a repurposed Jurassic World sphere) would be wonderful...
But I can dream
insert Forrest Gump joke here.
I'm more than happy with a series of minifigs over a January wave of sets. I don't need another Bat-sub/mech/tank/whatever set just to get a couple of figures. I'd much sooner see a sweet minifig set! :D

The trailer was cool but that ending ruined it for me... Both the lasso in the lightning and the golden armor (I hope they have a pretty good explanation for the absence of that in BvS and JL).
A Max Lord minifig would be awesome, and since Cheetah is already coming in the CMF series, I can hope.
Max Lord could be any business man really. Now put him in a Checkmate Shirt however...
As for the Golden Armour it looks like it's more like a Jump Suit with Wings instead of Parachute - probably going to be a one off type thing which would explain why she can't use it again.
Considering the success of these stand-alone movies (SS, Aquaman, WW, Joker), maybe DC could do a team-up event movie that comic fans and civilians would sign up in droves to see...
No Solomon Grundy.
Did anyone else notice the camouflage tumbler in the background of the 76139 designer video?
(Queue the "I can't see it" comments)
Is this an MOC version of 76023?
Either way I'd like to get my hands on it, any details would be great.
I know I posted something different 5 posts up.
There are quite a few Superheroes Big Figures they've failed to produce; it would be nice to get something besides yet another addition to the many versions of Green Hulk.
(Hmm... that is disappointing.)
