Geek Peek: First Official ‘LEGO Batman’ Images Released
  |  @   |  

The first set of official images has been released for The LEGO Batman Movie, the spinoff to the animated hit The LEGO Movie.

The movie follows the Dark Knight, once again voiced by Will Arnett, in his incredible hideout the Batcave, where he has pretty much any and everything he could want…except relationships. His only real relationship is with his butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes), that is until Dick Grayson (Robin, voiced by Michael Cera) and Barbara Gordon (Batgirl, voiced by Rosario Dawson) show up and change things. Also starring is Zach Galifianakis as The Joker and Mariah Carey as Mayor Marion Grange.

Talking to USA Today, who shared the new images, Arnett said of the Batcave:

“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.”

Chris McKay directs the movie after working as the animation director on The LEGO Movie. He spoke about what made them feel they could pull off an entire movie centered around Bats after the character was so popular in a supporting role, while also describing it:

“We thought if we can tell a well-rounded, funny story that’s action-packed, we can build a big movie around this character. This is the movie we would want to see.”

“Batman is an island onto himself, the only thing he doesn’t have is relationships. We’re making About a Boy as directed by Michael Mann.”

Arnett also added:

“We get down to that perfect sweet spot for Batman, but also having moments of hesitation. There’s nothing better than a guy who has this super-authoritative, brooding, voice but also moments where he’s a bit unsure.”

Oh, and as for the current Batman focus, Ben Affleck as he takes on Henry Cavill’s Superman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Arnett has no problem choosing sides there: “I’m going to just to enjoy the show, but I’ll be rooting for Ben. I mean, he’s Batman.” Plus, he has gotten pretty close to that little rivalry before.

The LEGO Batman Movie is currently scheduled for release on February 10, 2017. A trailer is expected to be released tomorrow, so be sure to drop by then to check it out!
