Batfleck Makes a Cameo in New ‘Lego Batman Movie’ Trailer
Whether you were a fan of Batman vs. Superman or not, we can all agree that The Lego Batman Movie looks pretty amazing. Now there are Batman movies for fans of all tastes. If you want the mature, gritty Batman, you have the Batman vs. Superman movies. If you want fun, goofy Batman, you have The Lego Batman Movie. And now, you have yet another Lego Batman Movie trailer to get you even more excited for the next Batman movie.
Yes, there was another Lego Batman Movie trailer last week, but as Batman says in the opening of this new trailer, “When you’re as super as me, you don’t get just one trailer, you get two trailers.”
Like the first, this one revolves mostly around one extended scene at Wayne Manor, this time with Batman and Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) having a discussion, which devolves into Batman breakdancing to the 1960s Batman theme song. There’s even an appearance from a certain Batfleck.
While the last trailer teased the arrival of the Lego Justice League, this new trailer hints at the arrival of (almost) all your classic Batman villains. At the end, we see a group shot with Clayface, Bane, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, The Riddler, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Killer Croc and Harley Quinn. Notably missing is the film’s main villain, The Joker, voiced by Zach Galifianakis in the movie.
In addition to Will Arnett as Batman, Galifianakis as Joker and Fiennes as Alfred, the film also stars Michael Cera as Robin, Rosario Dawson as Barbara Gordon/Batgirl and Mariah Carey as the Mayor of Gotham. Presumably Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum and Cobie Smulders will return to reprise their The Lego Movie roles as Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman, respectively.
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.
The Lego Batman Movie opens in theaters on February 10, 2017.
