BURBANK, Calif. (February 7, 2017) - Has Sheldon Cooper met his match? Perhaps the only person more self-obsessed than The Big Bang Theory's resident genius is LEGO Batman! To celebrate the original Man in Black (and yellow) and the arrival of the DC Super Hero's epic animated feature film on February 10, Warner Bros. Television's The Big Bang Theory has undergone its own LEGO transformation with an exclusive custom open and two on-air spots involving the series' cast members and LEGO Batman himself.
THE BIG BANG THEORY'S ON-AIR LEGO AWESOMENESS
· In anticipation of the nationwide premiere of The LEGO Batman Movie, The Big Bang Theory gives a shoutout to Gotham City's dopest Dark Knight Minifigure with a series of hilarious (but also epic, of course) promos and even a cool LEGO version of the show's opening sequence airing this week during its syndication run.
· Featuring the whole Caltech crew with LEGO Batman infiltrating the apartment, the custom LEGO promos will air during the series' off-net run all this week. In addition to these "Five Nights a Week" promos, a LEGO version of the show's popular opening titles will air all week (through Friday, February 10) in more than 200 syndicated markets nationwide.
