Awesome: ‘Lego Batman’ Movie In Development

Lego Batman

Everyone’s favourite Batman is now getting his own movie.

THR has the scoop that the film is in the works with Will Arnett reprising his role as the caped crusader and Lego Movie animation supervisor Chris McKay, originally set to direct The Lego Movie 2, directing and Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller producing.

Reportedly WB is looking to have the film come out in 2017, and potentially even the 26th May release date that Lego Movie 2 was slated for. Presumably Lego Movie 2 would come out some time after that.

Arnett’s participation is obviously the key here as he was perfect the first time around. No word on the story yet but hopefully they go for an even more in-depth deconstruction of Batman as a character.
