There’s going to be a new direct-to-video DC Lego movie out in February, and this one will focus on the Flash. Titled Lego DC Super-Heroes: The Flash, it will feature an adventure with Barry Allen and Professor Zoom, as well as the rest of the Justice League. The movie will be released digitally on February 6th 2018, and be out on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 13th. You can check out the trailer below.

Sadly we don’t have anyone on-site at Comic-Con International this year, but we do have the internet, so we’re following along with everyone else. Here’s a quick round-up of news from the first day and a half of the convention:
One of the attractions at this year’s LEGO booth is a life-size LEGO Flash based on the DCEU movie costume.
Delays on pre-production for the Flash movie mean that Shazam will film next, likely to release in 2019. It’s clear the Flash film won’t make its 2018 target, but there are three days left for DC/WB to make announcements — and he features prominently in new Justice league images.
If you follow us on Facebook or Twitter, you’ve seen our link to Kizmo’s S.T.A.R. Labs LEGO Ideas set based on the CW Flash TV show. In LEGO Ideas, you design a model, post photos and descriptions, and drum up support. A project that gets 10,000 votes will go on to get an official review, and possibly become an actual set.
Kizmo’s set features the Cortex and the “time vault” as well as minifigures of the Flash and Reverse-Flash suits, Barry Allen, Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon and Harrison Wells (with his season 1 wheelchair).
The project launched last month and currently stands at 1350 supporters, with a year and a half to reach the next milestone. Supporting the project doesn’t cost anything (you’re not committing to buying something like you would be with Kickstarter), but it does require that you sign up with a LEGO ID.
