It’s gonna be Bat-tastic!
Batman has a long history of being a dark and brooding character with some really heavy stories to tell (except when you count out the Batman ’66 and Schumacher movies of course). The Lego Batman Movie is out to change all of that.
Coming off the heels of the very successful The Lego Movie, the film promises irreverent fun and humour and a very different kind of Batman of which we got a taste in the 2014 animated film. The film is just weeks away from release and Warner Bros. is doing their best to make sure that we all end up watching it.
The clips are mostly reminiscent of scenes we saw in the earlier trailers bar one or two. It was said by producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller very early on that the film will acknowledge every era of Batman’s filmmaking. By seeing the clips one can rest assured that the promise has been fulfilled. We get to see the infamous Shark-repellent spray in the Bat-cave along with some of the Batmobiles from the 90s.

The studio has also released a new featurette and a video playing on the dual nature of Batman and Bruce Wayne, albeit hilariously!

Robot Chicken director Chris McKay helms the film based on a screenplay by Seth Grahame-Smith, Chris McKenna, and Erik Sommers.
The film marks the return of Will Arnett as The Caped Crusader along with Michael Cera as Batman’s sidekick Robin, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon, and Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth and Mariah Carey as the Mayor of Gotham.
The Lego Batman Movie opens in theatres on February 10, 2017.
