As things stand, The LEGO Batman Movie is one of the first comic book-themed blockbusters to hit theaters in 2017, and in order to drum up excitement, Warner Bros. has rolled out a new image today featuring the Caped Crusader and his many, many rides.
In what could be a primer for a brand new trailer, here we see Will Arnett’s wonderfully self-absorbed Batman front and center, with an assembly of weird and wacky vehicles populating the backdrop. There’s the traditional Batmobile, of course, but there also appears to be a few alternatives should the World’s Greatest Detective find himself in a spot of bother – be it on land, air or sea.

Darkness, no parents, and plenty of laughs are set to feature in The LEGO Batman Movie, which drafts in Michael Cera as wide-eyed sidekick, Robin. Together with Arnett’s brooding vigilante, they must put a stop to the Clown Prince of Crime (Zach Galifianakis), who is prepared to bring Gotham to its knees for shits and giggles. Rounding out the stellar cast are Rosario Dawson as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, and Mariah Carey as the Mayor of Gotham
Riding the crest of a pixelated wave thanks to the landmark success of Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s LEGO Movie, Chris McKay’s The LEGO Batman Movie will swoop into theaters in time for February 10, 2017. It’ll be followed in quick succession by a star-studded Ninjago spinoff, before Warner circles back to the main timeline for a bona fide sequel to the 2014 breakout.
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.
