When I saw articles yesterday that washed-up singer Mariah Carey was going to be involved in the upcoming LEGO Batman movie and what’s more would be playing the role of Commissioner Gordon (?!) I fell over.

Not because of my usual nerd rage that would usually take over when such preposterous news is leaked but because of the laughter. The social media comments regarding the news included this classic: ‘Great! Just want we wanted. Now if only we can get Terry Crews to voice Harley Quinn’

While we all had a good laugh it seems the joke may have wore off.

The Hollywood Reporter are disputing movie website Deadline’s claims that Carey is voicing Gordon and is instead voicing the Mayor of Gotham.

The cast already includes: 

Alfred (Ralph Fiennes), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), Robin (Michael Cera) and Joker (Zach Galifianakis), with Will Arnett reprising as the voice of Batman from the 2014 LEGO Movie.

LEGO Batman has a February 10, 2017 slated release and will be directed by Chris McKay.
