The LEGO Movie was better than anyone expected and packed full of great characters, but the MVP was without a doubt the Caped Crusader. It makes sense then that Warner Bros. is now giving the iconic DC Comics superhero the spotlight in his own spinoff with The LEGO Batman Movie.
The studio has been having a lot of fun with the marketing campaign thus far, and the latest promo features a holiday message from the hero. It doesn’t reveal anything new about The LEGO Batman Movie, but it serves as a nice reminder that it’s on the way, and points to the dynamic between the Dark Knight and his supporting cast being an awful lot of fun.
As you can see in the video above, Batman doesn’t have much patience with Robin, and for more on what to expect from The LEGO Batman Movie, here’s the official synopsis:
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: The LEGO Batman Movie. 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.
With an impressive ensemble made up of names like Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Ralph Fiennes, Rosario Dawson and Zach Galifianakis, the movie is one of 2017’s most star-studded superhero outing and definitely looks to be one of the most fun. Whether or not it’ll be able to live up to The LEGO Movie obviously remains to be seen. However, considering the fact that it’s set in the DC Universe, you can bet your life that The LEGO Batman Movie most definitely has the potential to at least match it.
