WATCH: New trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie kicks us right in the giggles

November 4th, 2016 by Marc Comments


No-one can poke fun at a franchise while still showing it total love like LEGO and this new LEGO Batman trailer takes that all the way to 11… and it’s glorious.

The fourth trailer finally gives us a taste of Zach Galifanakis’ Joker and Rosario Dawson as Batgirl and man it made us smile!

Oh and it looks like Batman V Superman in the LEGO universe too. Brilliant.

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….
