The Lego Batman movie's Robin will be voiced by... Michael Cera?

Hope you're ready for DC Comics' Robin to sound a lot like the skinny kid from Superbad / Juno's baby-daddy / Scott Pilgrim, because 27-year old awkward teenager Michael Cera will voice the Dark Knight's sidekick in the Lego Batman film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The LEGO Movie spin-off film will be something of a reunion for Arrested Development fans, as Will Arnett (who played Cera's uncle in the show) will reprise the role of the titular, blocky, dark vigilante.

Just remember: The Lego Batman that will be starring in the Lego Batman movie (which still lacks an official title) is the same Lego Batman from from Lego Dimensions, but not the Lego Batman from the Lego Batman games, and... oh, ow. Ow, my brain.

Lego Batman (the movie) is due in theaters sometime in 2017.
