Updated: Lego Joker & Robin Take The Spotlight from Lego Batman!

The one and only Mr. J himself and Batman's trusty Boy Wonder make their lego debut in 'The Lego Movie' spin off 'Lego Batman Movie.'

Zach Galifianakis will voice The Joker with Michael Cera taking on Robin, director Chris McKay dropped a hint on how the relationship will be between the The Joker an Batman
The Joker sees himself on the same level as Batman, a peer, at the top of the game,, but Batman says that’s not the case, which sends Joker into a spiral trying to prove to Batman that he is indeed the greatest enemy.
That's kind of The Joker's General Patton car, where he can survey the battle," McKay says. It’s loud and flashy, the inner view of himself writ large in car form with crazy, zebra-striped seats.
And on Robin.
"Robin is a super-positive kid who always sees the glass as half full. Really, at the end of the day, he just wants a hug," McKay says. "Michael brings the sweetness and honesty."
Mckay always talked a little about the direction of the animated film and there will be more than the Joker for Batman to face..... in Lego!
Lego Batman is About a Boy as directed by Michael Mann," McKay says. "This is a single guy who suddenly has a kid literally drop into his world. 
We’re going deep in Batman lore and DC Comics lore," McKay says. "Batman's Rogues Gallery is going to be completely filled out in Lego.

'The Lego Batman Movie' hits cinemas on February 10, 2017.
