To further Dan Lin’s point, having Emmet, Wyldstyle, or any of the other LEGO Movie characters appear would somewhat undercut everything that The LEGO Batman Movie is doing with its story and ensemble. If Batman can just lean back on his relationships with the heroes from The LEGO Movie, that makes Alfred, Robin and others far less significant in the broad view. By just ignoring Emmet and Wyldstyle, the cast in The LEGO Batman Movie feel that much more important to the emotional journey that the titular hero goes on.
