What, you didn’t actually think Batman v Superman was the only Batman movie Warner had coming up, right? I give you the teaser trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie, it’s like The LEGO Movie but with a lot more Batman.
A spin-off to the very successful The LEGO Movie ($469.2 million worldwide), The LEGO Batman Movie continues the adventure of the caped crusader. If you watched that and enjoyed it (like I did), then this seems to be more of that, which is exactly what I expected when Warner announced they were going to make this spin-off. And how great was it that they acknowledged Batman and Robin in the teaser, I mean has there ever been a promo for any movie that did that? I know for a fact no other Batman film did it, not after Batman and Robin pretty much killed the series for the next couple of years. So I’m glad to see they aren’t afraid to poke fun at themselves, especially when it comes to arguably Warner’s most valuable superhero, Batman.
Chris McKay directed The LEGO Batman Movie and Seth Grahame-Smith wrote it. Will Arnett is back to voice The Dark Knight, and alongside him you can also hear Rosario Dawson (Batgirl/Barbara Gordon), Ralph Fiennes (Alfred), Michael Cera (Robin), Zach Galifianakis (The Joker) and Mariah Carey.
The LEGO Batman Movie hits theaters starting February 10th 2017 in the US and around the world.
