The LEGO Batman Movie will be swooping into theaters this weekend, and Warner Bros. is going all out to show the plastic Caped Crusader some support.

The studio announced today that some of their biggest DC Comics television properties have "undergone their own LEGO transformation," showing off minifig versions of Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), the Flash (Grant Gustin), and the cast of Gotham.

On Monday, Warner Bros. unveiled these epic LEGO posters, which are now featured on the iconic exterior billboards surrounding the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California.

ET's Denny Directo was at the grand unveiling, and spoke with the stars of 2 Broke Girls about what it feels like to be made into LEGOs.

"It feels real good!" Dennings shared.

"This is Kat's dream," Behrs added. "So she's been crying all morning. Crying tears of happiness about being a LEGO."

According to Warner Bros., over 10,000 LEGO bricks were used to make each of the different posters. Instead of creating the characters with computer generated graphics, practical sets were constructed and real minifig characters were photographed.

All that intensive labor required over 300 hours of building, compositing and photographing, and an additional 70 hours to install the massive billboards encircling the Warner Bros. lot.

The brilliant cross promotion between The LEGO Batman Movie and the CW didn't end simply with amazing posters! The LEGO Dark Knight (Will Arnett) also got to meet the CW's minifig heroes in this hilarious promo.

ET caught up with Arnett at The LEGO Batman Movie premiere on Saturday, where the star opened up about when he uses his gravely Batman voice to keep his sons in check.

"Just [with] the kids when I'm trying to get them to turn off their iPads," Arnett said of his two boys -- Archie, 8, and Abel, 6. "It allows me to drop into the Batman voice when I need to drop the hammer at home." Check out the video below to hear more.

The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters this Friday.
