With Batman v Superman having early screenings today and finally being released everywhere tomorrow, it’s time for Batman to shine, no not Ben Affleck I’m talking about will Arnett and The LEGO Batman Movie. The first teaser for the film was released today and sure enough, it’s awesome.
Directed by Chris McKay, the cast is filled out by Michael Cera as Batman’s sidekick Robin, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon, and Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth and Mariah Carey as the Mayor of Gotham. The LEGO Batman Movie is set to arrive in theaters February 10, 2017.
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.
