|From Gandalf and Shakespeare to Wonder Woman and Shaq, The Lego Movie's referential humor seemed to know no bounds. When producer Dan Lin sat down with The Hollywood Reporter for the Animator Roundtable, he said it was a big challenge going to rights holders of each individual character and telling them how they were going to "Lego-ize" their properties. Lin said it was important for the rights holder to understand that they "were approaching everything form a source of comedy, but also being true to who your character is." Lin also talked about approaching Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan for permission to include a comical Batman in the animated feature. Lin explained, "You guys have your live-action Batman, and we will have what we call the Lego Batman. As soon as they understood that they were different universes—they have their DC universe and we have our Lego Batman version—it worked out okay."
