It looks like Batman will be heading back to the big screen next year with plenty of friends. In February 2017, The LEGO Batman Movie will debut to fans worldwide, but the iconic vigilante will not hit theaters alone. A brand-new poster for the movie is showing off all the sidekicks, villains, and superhero extras who will star in the feature - and there's tons of them.
"LEGO Batman's coming, and he's bringing some friends," the iTunes Trailers Twitter wrote in a recent post. "Can you name them all?"
The tweet included a new poster for The LEGO Batman Movie, and there are all sorts of characters featured. Of course, Batman shows up front-and-center with Robin, but the likes of Superman, Poison Ivy, Riddler, and Wonder Woman can also be seen.
Even poor Alfred can be seen running amongst the herd while balancing a mug on a dining platter. The beloved butler just doesn't know when to call it quits.
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.
Will Arnett reprises his starring role from "The LEGO Movie" as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis ("Muppets Most Wanted," the "Hangover" films) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV's "Arrested Development") as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV's "Daredevil") as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (the "Harry Potter" films) as Alfred.
"The LEGO® Batman Movie" will be directed by Chris McKay, and produced by Dan Lin, Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Roy Lee, who worked together on "The LEGO Movie." It is written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, with additional screenplay material by Jared Stern & John Whittington, based on LEGO Construction Toys. Jill Wilfert, Matthew Ashton and Will Allegra serve as executive producers.
