LEGO Batman was the unexpected standout star of 2014’s The LEGO Movie, Will Arnett voicing the character with the exact right blend of weird humor and inappropriate gravitas. Fans loved him so much that he’s getting his own movie, and those who have kept up with all the filmic Batman iterations of the past will be excited to hear the latest casting news: Billy Dee Williams, who played District Attorney Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s Batman, will be voicing Two-Face in The LEGO Batman Movie.

The first teaser for The LEGO Batman Movie was appropriately Bat-heavy and even more delightful than we could have imagined. And while Will Arnett’s narcissistic Dark Knight probably doesn’t care too much about his co-stars, we’ve been anxious to see what some of Batman’s other famous characters will look like in the upcoming LEGO Movie spinoff. Thankfully, the wait is over.

So far, the voice casting for the LEGO Batman movie has been exceptionally on-point, with Will Arnett reprising his satirically brooding role as the titular hero alongside Michael Cera’s Robin, Rosario Dawson’s Batgirl and Zach Galifianakis’ Joker. Joining that awesome lineup is Ralph Fiennes, who will lend his vocal talents to the role of Batman / Bruce Wayne’s wise old butler, Alfred Pennyworth.

Batman is a ‘Cornerstone’ for Warner Bros Interactive, Earth is Round, Water is Wet

Over the weekend, Warner Bros. confirmed that Batman remains a big part of its interactive future. In an interview with the PlayStation Blog, Ames Kirshen, vice president of product development for the Arkham and DC Comics games at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, stated, “Batman is one of the cornerstone IPs for Warner Bros. With the Arkham series, we were finally able to realize the full potential of the character.” It's not a very bold statement, though it is an obvious one.

Since Lego Batman first arrived on the scene in 2008, the Dark Knight has had quite a run of success with his various video game incarnations. Combined with the Batman: Arkham series, the pointy-eared millionaire has easily recorded tens of millions of game sales over the past seven years. Given the recent success with Batman: Arkham Knight (horrible PC launch notwithstanding), it makes a lot of sense for Warner Bros. Interactive to keep the big guy around in some form or another, even if current fan-favorite developer Rocksteady Studios is claiming to be done with Batman.

If you’re not particularly a fan of Jared Leto’s Joker aesthetic in Suicide Squad, then the latest Joker-centric news may put a smile on that face (sorry): Zach Galifianakis is in talks to join Will Arnett’s Batman and Michael Cera’s Robin in the LEGO Batman movie as the voice of the iconic clown prince. Cue laughter.

The ‘Lego Batman’ Movie Will Ask ‘Can Batman Be Happy?’

LegoBatman00

I'm going to be real with you, folks: even though we're looking down the barrel of 38 superhero movies over the next few years, the one that I'm looking forward to the most is easily Lego Batman, starring Will Arnett as the Caped and Blocky Crusader. It's been something I've been looking for ever since it was announced, but now, I've got an even bigger reason to want to see it, because we finally have a detail about the plot.

According to a red carpet interview with Arnett, along with cowriters and directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord, the 2017 Batman movie will focus on answering one question: Can Batman be happy?

‘LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham’ Offers Familiar Fun And Lots Of Lanterns [Review]

lego-batman-3_justiceleague_01

If you've played one of the previous two LEGO Batman games, or really any of developer Traveller's Tales LEGO games, there's a certain degree of knowing what you're getting into with LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. Though it certainly has a new coat of paint on it, so to speak, many of the mechanics and gameplay objectives are the same as they've always been.

The developers make up for that by giving players more of everything: playable characters, levels, collectibles, power-ups, costumes side quests, Easter eggs and locations. Mix that more-is-more mentality with an enduring charm and sense of humor, and you've got a pretty compelling package, albeit one that tends to bring out some of my worst tendencies as a player.
