2017 will mark the first time DC Comics’ greatest superhero team will appear on screen. Of course, many believe November’s Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder, will hold that place. However, the League will arrive a lot sooner. February’s The LEGO Batman Movie will star Will Arnett reprising his role as the Caped Crusader from 2014’s The LEGO Movie, alongside Michael Cera as Robin. The Warner Bros. film has released hilarious trailer after hilarious trailer, and with the latest extended TV spot, literally nothing has changed. The movie is still, yep, hilarious. The latest TV spot, which should really count as a new trailer with its 1:45 runtime, showcases Zach Galifianakis’ Joker, and his army of super villains, including The Riddler, Catwoman, Calendar Man and “The Condiment King,” as well as The Justice League in all their bricked glory. You can check out the video below:
With the DC Comics movies being so dark and grim, it is honestly so nice to see something poke a little fun at that. Warner Bros. are sitting on a goldmine with this movie, hopefully, when it hits theatres, the studio hasn’t placed all the funny moments in the trailers and clips. I mean, how perfect is the exchange between Batman and Joker, with the Dark Knight ending the discussion by saying, “There is no us!” Simply perfect.
What do you guys think? Are you excited for the upcoming The LEGO Batman Movie? I for one cannot wait.
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO® Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble—LEGO Batman—stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
The LEGO Batman Movie opens in theatres on February 10, 2017.
