After the critical and financial success of 2014’s The Lego Movie, it was soon announced that a spinoff featuring Will Arnett as Batman will be released in 2017. Directed by Chris McKay, it features an all star voice cast including Ralph Fiennes as Alfred, Michael Cera as Robin, and Zach Galifianakis as the Joker. With Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice being released this week, it makes sense to have this trailer play before it. Check it out below.
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.
The Lego Batman Movie hits theaters next year.
