Batman isn’t just the world’s greatest detective. As the new teaser for The Lego Batman Movie demonstrates, he’s also the world’s greatest writer, director, sound mixer and choreographer. Oh, and he has a sick flow too.
Will Arnett reprises his role as the blockheaded Dark Knight in the spinoff from 2014’s The Lego Movie. But this particular Batman isn’t just about the constant fight against injustice of his live-action counterparts. There are also leftovers to reheat in the microwave after a night of crime fighting (especially when said crime fighting includes running around with the Justice League, glimpsed briefly).
Appearing alongside Arnett in the movie are Michael Cera as Robin, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker and, it seems, Apple’s Siri as the Batcomputer. Someone should really talk to her about typecasting.
Directed by Chris McKay, The Lego Batman Movie will be released Feb. 10, 2017. We can only hope that it features more Bat-beatboxing.
