The Lego Batman Movie won’t hit our screens until 2017, but the first images from the animated film arrived on Monday.
The Lego Movie was a success the world over, with plenty of fun cameos, both from well-known actors and the characters we see in the film. Undoubtedly, one of the highlights was Batman, as voiced by Will Arnett.
USA Today brings us a first look at the film, which debuts on February 10, 2017.
In the pictures above, we see Batman in his lair, where he has innumerable Batman masks and costumes to choose from, each one labeled. There’s even a “New 52” Bat.
The third image is of Batman riding through the streets of Gotham, and then we get him again in his house, this time in the kitchen. He might be wearing a fancy red robe and eating lobster (?) but he looks awfully lonely.
Planes and batcaves can only get you so far in life.
USA Today says of the film’s plot, “The story is set around the solitary figure in his killer hide-out — all the Batsuits and silk kimonos he wants — but whose main relationship is with his butler Alfred (voiced by Ralph Fiennes). Batman’s world upends with the introduction of Dick Grayson (or Robin, voiced by Michael Cera) and Barbara Gordon (or Batgirl, voiced by Rosario Dawson).”
You can also expect to see The Joker (Zach Galifianakis) and Gotham’s mayor (Mariah Carey). If you’re surprised that the mayor will be female, prepare yourself for some traditionally male roles to go to the ladies. Director Chris McKay also promises “exhaustive” cameos in the film.
And there’s even better news. The Lego Batman trailer will arrive on Wednesday, so we don’t have too much longer to wait until we get a more solid look at what this movie will bring us.
