Reports surfaced earlier today that Mariah Carey was in talks for a role in the upcoming Warner Bros. The LEGO Batman Movie, a spinoff of 2014’s The LEGO Movie. While initial linked to the role of Commissioner Gordon, that reporting appears to be false, according to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Borys Kit.
This just in: Mariah Carey is NOT playing Commissioner Gordon but rather Gotham’s mayor.

Mariah Carey will join Will Arnett (Batman), Michael Cera (Robin), Ralph Finnes (Alfred), Rosario Dawson (Batgirl) and Zach Galifianakis (The Joker).
What do you think of this casting?
