Batman will get a LEGO Movie spin-off

Not satisfied with adding him to the Man Of Steel franchise, Warner is set to put Batman to work once more, with THR reporting that the studio has given the green light to a LEGO Movie spin-off featuring the Dark Knight.

According to the report, Will Arnett is already on board to voice the character for a second time, with The LEGO Movie ’s animation supervisor Chris McKay set to direct.

Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Phil Lord and Chris Miller will all contribute to production duties, with Warner planning to fast-track the project ahead of a potential release in early 2017.

The film will be one of three in the franchise to be released in the near future, with Ninjago and The Lego Movie 2 scheduled for 2016 and 2017 respectively.

Plot details remain non-existent at present, but given that Arnett’s Batman stole every scene that came his way in the original movie, we can’t wait to see him in his own adventure…
