Everyone’s favourite Batman is now getting his own movie.
[THR](http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/lego-batman-spinoff-movie-works-738631?utm_source=twitter) 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.
