The Lego-Industrial Complex grows larger next year with “The Lego Batman Movie,” which will arrive in theaters two years earlier than “The Lego Movie Sequel.” A new trailer for the animated sendup of Gotham City’s resident vigilante has been released at Comic-Con, and it’s (obviously) the most lighthearted take on Batman yet.
As he did in “The Lego Movie,” Will Arnett voices the Caped Crusader in this latest iteration of the iconic superhero. True to form for both him and the “Lego” series itself, he brings a mocking self-seriousness to Batman’s various happenings — including the introduction of Robin (Michael Cera) as his adopted son with enough bouncy optimism for both fo them.
Zach Galifianakis (as the Joker), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl), Ralph Fiennes (Alfred) and Mariah Carey (Mayor of Gotham City) all lend their voices to the project as well. “The Lego Batman Movie” is set to be released on February 10, 2017.
