WATCH: New The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spot pokes fun at Batman’s previous cinematic outings

January 11th, 2017 by Marc Comments


For a studio that gets so much grief over not having a sense of humour in its cinematic output, this new TV spot of The LEGO Batman Movie seems to imply that there’s plenty of humour to be had.

The new spot points fun at the Batman cinematic outings of Batman V Superman, The Dark Knight and even the 1966 Batman movie.

Check out out below and see if you’re as excited as we are for this!

Now, the world of bricks is back, but this time it’s LEGO Batman. Spinning a fun and irreverent tale on the dark comic book character, Will Arnett will return as the Caped Crusader. If you saw The Lego Movie, you’ll remember his hilarious take on Christian Bale’s ludicrously gravelly Batman voice (WHERE IS HE!?).

This version of Batman will come with Robin (Michael Cera), Batgirl (Rosario Dawson), The Joker (Zach Galifianakis). Yes, that’s right – we have Alan from The Hangover voicing the Clown Prince of Crime.

Directed by Chris McKay and written by Seth Grahame-Smith, The Lego Batman Movie also stars Ralph Fiennes doing the voice of Alfred Pennyworth, Mariah Carey as the Mayor and that’s all that’s known for now. 

The Lego Batman Movie is due in cinemas on February 10, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
