In The Lego Movie, Batman was very funny, but he was also a bit of a douche. However Warner still reckons he’s a good character to base a movie around, as it’s been announced that he’s getting his own spinoff. Hopefully the film will teach him to be a bit less arrogant.
It’s also been revealed that the movie has been put on the fast track, seemingly because they’ve realised it’ll take longer to get The Lego Movie 2 on the big screen that the May 26th, 2017 release date it’s previously been given. Lego Batman may now take over that release date, with the proper sequel coming sometime later.
Will Arnett is all set to voice Batman once more, with director Chris McKay – who was previously set to direct The Lego Movie 2 – helming the movie. Seth Grahame-Smith will write the script.
It means that is everything works out, Ben Affleck could have some competition for Batman movie dominance.
