He's still dark and still has no parents, check out the first images and Two trailers from the 'The Lego Movie' spinoff ''The Lego Batman Movie.' Chris McKay who was the animation director on 'The Lego Movie' will take the helm of the spin off with a script by future Flash director Seth Grahame-Smith.
Will Arnett will once again voice Batman from alongside Michael Cera as Robin the boy wonder, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Mariah Carey as Gotham’s mayor and Zach Galifianakis as The Joker.
“The Batcave is even better than we remembered it, it’s awesome” Arnett tells USA Today. “But I also love getting into the ho-hum day-to-day of being Batman and what it’s like to fight crime each day. Like the idea of Batman oversleeping his alarm clock makes me laugh. It really does humanize him.”
“We thought if we can tell a well-rounded, funny story that’s action-packed, we can build a big movie around this character,” says director Chris McKay. “This is the movie we would want to see. We’re nothing but exhaustive about the cameos and other characters that try to enter Batman’s life.”In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
