The Lego Batman movie is a real thing — there’s reason to have faith in humanity. After The Lego Movie became one of the year’s biggest hits back in 2014 when it grossed over $500 million globally, proving to be a huge hit with the critics too.
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. Watch the first trailer below.
Cheers to Squareeyed for the heads up
