Default The LEGO Batman Movie

So, LEGO Batman will be getting his own movie in 2017. Miller and Lord are producing, with Will Arnett returning to voice the character.

The LEGO Movie is currently the highest-grossing animated film of the year, beating out the likes of Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Rio 2, and even How To Train Your Dragon 2, while also remaining ahead of Disney’s just-released Big Hero 6 for the time being. Following its success, Warner Bros. began making plans to turn the film into its own franchise with multiple films set to roll out, starting in 2016 with LEGO Ninjago.

In 2017, which was originally set for The LEGO Movie sequel, WB will instead be bringing us The LEGO Batman Movie, a spin-off of Will Arnett’s version of the Dark Knight. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller will produce the film and speaking with Empire, the pair said they’ll touch on the entire cinematic history of the character in the film.

“Rest assured, every era of Batman filmmaking will be acknowledged,” Lord said.

“There have been so many interpretations of Batman and there is so much to play with there,” Miller added. “There are 40 versions of his origin story alone.”

The LEGO Movie animation supervisor Chris McKay will direct the film which features a script by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter creator Seth Grahame-Smith. The LEGO Batman Movie debuts on May 26, 2017.

I figured this deserves a thread in the Batman subforum. Anyone else looking forward to this? I think this could be insanely fun, especially with how meta Miller and Lord get with their humor.

I guess this spin-off could work for me.

It could be as disappointing as the LEGO Movie was imo, I consider ignoring this movie.

If they do what they did with The Lego Movie, I will be happy cos that was fun film. I would love to see Batmoblies or the Batsuits from the previous films.

In addition, Iger confirmed that Rian Johnson will write and direct Star Wars: Episode VIII and that it will open in theaters May 26, 2017 – forty years and a day after the release of Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman will produce the film.
SW is a 4 quadrant movie no matter how you're looking at it and WB will move the date.
