Warner Brothers has signed a licensing deal with Lego to produce a Lego Batman videogame, according to Variety.
The deal comes after the huge success of the LucasArts Lego Star Wars titles, which feature the characters and settings of the Star Wars universe in Lego form. Lego Star Wars and it’s sequel sold several million units in the United States alone.

TT Games, developer of the Lego Star Wars games, will also follow a similar template to create Lego Batman, which Warner Brothers will release on multiple consoles in 2008.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will fully finance and publish the game itself, as well as handle all distribution in North America.
The videogame won’t be Batman’s first Lego appearance. Lego already has a full line of building block sets that feature the caped crusader in his high-profile Bat vehicles chasing down Gotham City’s most feared villains.
