Before Wonder Woman makes her (hopefully) triumphant debut next year, another DC Comics character will get the spin-off treatment with The LEGO Batman Movie. The film will see Will Arnett reprise his role as Batman from The LEGO Movie along with Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon, Michael Cera as Dick Grayson/Robin, and Ralph Fiennes as Alfred.
Warner Bros Pictures has released another trailer for the highly anticipated family film that shows more of the wide array of Bat-Universe characters that appear in the movie and tones down the loud, annoying Robin from the previous trailer.

The LEGO® Batman Movie
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from “The LEGO Movie” as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis (“Muppets Most Wanted,” the “Hangover” films) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV’s “Arrested Development”) as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV’s “Daredevil”) as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (the “Harry Potter” films) as Alfred.
“The LEGO® Batman Movie” will be directed by Chris McKay, and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Roy Lee, who worked together on “The LEGO Movie.” The screenplay is by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jared Stern & John Whittington, story by Seth Grahame-Smith and Erik Sommers & Chris McKenna, based on LEGO Construction Toys. Batman created by Bob Kane with Bill Finger. Jill Wilfert, Matthew Ashton and Will Allegra serve as executive producers.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Warner Animation Group, in association with LEGO System A/S, a Lin Pictures / Lord Miller / Vertigo Entertainment production, “The LEGO Batman Movie” will open in theaters on February 10, 2017. It will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
