Warner Bros. has revealed via USA Today our first look at the Lego Movie spinoff, the Lego Batman Movie. The sneak peek reveals a short synopsis:
"The story is set around the solitary figure in his killer hide-out — all the Batsuits and silk kimonos he wants — but whose main relationship is with his butler Alfred (voiced by Ralph Fiennes). Batman’s world upends with the introduction of Dick Grayson (or Robin, voiced by Michael Cera) and Barbara Gordon (or Batgirl, voiced by Rosario Dawson)."
Plus, as a kind of surprise, the trailer will be dropping online this Wednesday! Check back here at EastCoastMovieGuys on Wednesday for the trailer, and sound off in the comments with your thoughts on the cool images.
Here's what actor Will Arnett who played Batman in the first Lego Movie had to say about returning as the Caped Crusader:
“The Batcave is even better than we remembered it, it’s awesome. But I also love getting into the ho-hum day-to-day of being Batman and what it’s like to fight crime each day. Like the idea of Batman oversleeping his alarm clock makes me laugh. It really does humanize him.”
The film is directed by Chris McKay, and will feature the voices of Will Arnett, Ralph Fiennes, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis and Mariah Carey.
The Lego Batman Movie is set to hit theaters on February 10th, 2017.
