The Caped Crusader returns to the big screen in February with the release of Warner Bros.’ The LEGO Batman Movie, and producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been chatting to Collider about the upcoming spinoff to The LEGO Movie, describing it as a love letter to fans of The Dark Knight.
“Chris McKay, the director of the movie, is a real Batman aficionado and knows really arcane stuff that was only in one issue of the comic book in 1972, and that sort of thing,” said Miller. “So, it is chock full of stuff for Batman aficionados. It is just a 90-minute Easter egg.”
“It heavily honors the comics, so it covers all the way through to Batman v Superman,” added Lord.
The LEGO Batman Movie is set for release on February 10th 2017 and sees Will Arnett joined in the voice cast by Michael Cera (Superbad) as Robin, Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as Batgirl, Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) as The Joker, Ralph Fiennes (Spectre) as Alfred and Mariah Carey as the Mayor of Gotham.
