Lego Batman

One of the unquestioned highlights of February's hit The LEGO Movie was Will Arnett voicing a pompous Batman, and audiences are about to get a lot more of him as Heat Vision reports that Warner Bros. is readying a solo movie for the character to be released in 2017.

Yes, you read that right, that was the same release year as the LEGO Movie sequel, to be directed by that film's animation supervisor Chris McKay, but Warners is now fast-tracking the solo LEGO Batman film instead with McKay at the helm and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter creator Seth Grahame-Smith drafting the script.

The LEGO Batman movie will now likely take the May 26, 2017 date and The LEGO Movie sequel will now be pushed back to after 2017.

Will Arnett, who parodied Christian Bale's gravelly Batman vocals to perfection, will return to voice the Caped Crusader, and possibly one-up the songmanship on his heavy metal lyrics: "Darkness! No parents!" Original directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will again produce alongside Roy Lee, Dan Lin, who are simultaneously supervising Ninjago for a September 23, 2016 release.

Hmmm... Not sure if I like this idea... I mean, on the good side, this could be a fun movie and it could make Batman more popular between the kids(like it was possible to make him even more popular than he already is nowadays...); but, on the bad side, "The Lego Movie 2" is going to be delayed! And personally, I would rather have the TLM2 than a Lego Batman spin-off. :|

Not sure how this will work out, but if Arnett will be voicing him again I'll be up for it.

Slightly related note, I had no idea that there's actually a Lego Batman TV show on Cartoon Network.

There isn't. It's just a special, Lego does them every now and then for Star Wars.

Is it? It listed it as a series on Sky when it was on, but ah well. All I remember is that members of the Justice League were going missing :lol:

I'd seriously love if they could get away with making an adult Lego film, in the style of Forrestfire101 and the such like.

Damn, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred is actually a great casting choice! So is Michael Cera as a comedic Robin :lol:

Zach Galifianakis will hopefully be decent as Joker. Please surprise me...

I'm not sure what to think. The visuals are beautiful just like LEGO movie, but the humor feels a little off. I'm still really excited for this though.

Eh. I wasn't the biggest fan of Batman in The Lego Movie, he had some funny moments but his jokes didn't always work with me. This trailer seems to repeat the formula unfortunately.
