Comic book fans have long pondered what it would be like for Batman and Superman to appear in a movie together – well, they won’t have to wonder much longer (as long as they don’t mind that it’s in CG Lego form).
The iconic DC Comics superheroes – who will hopefully also join live action forces in the recently resurrected Justice League movie – will get animated in the upcoming CGI adventure, LEGO: The Piece of Resistance.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (21 Jump Street, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs) are taking the helm of this unique project, which will be made almost entirely of LEGO bricks and men (in CGI form). They have locked in Will Arnett as Batman, and are currently courting their former leading man Channing Tatum to take on the role of Superman. It is not known how the two characters play into the plot of the film, or how much screen time they will share.
Chris Pratt headlines the voice cast of the film, playing Emmet, a LEGO mini-figurine who is mistaken for a ‘Master Builder’. He is soon drafted into a fellowship of strangers and sets out on a quest to stop an evil force from gluing the world together. (Source: Variety)
