Everything is awesome Batman! Everything is cool when you’re Batman. Everything Batmaaan, because I’m Batman.
This is a smart (and expected) move from Warner Bros. to capitalize on the success of The Lego Movie with announcing a spin-off film featuring the popular (favorite?) Lego character. This announcement comes from The Hollywood Reporter who also reported that actor Will Arnett will return to voice the superhero.
No release date has been announced though the studio is targeting a 2017 release date. The Lego Batman film will be directed by Chris McKay, who served as animation supervisor on The Lego Movie. Directors of that film Phil Lord and Chris Miller are set to produce.
I guess you could say this news is…Awesome! Look for more details on the project in the coming months. For now check out Lego Batman and Lego Superman’s reaction to The Lego Movie below.
