The Lego Batman Movie

Many great men have called themselves Batman. Adam West. Michael Keaton. Christian Bale. Ben Affleck. David Jason in that Only Fools & Horses episode. But we would argue none are as great, or indeed as gravelly voiced, as Will Arnett, who returns to voice the Caped Crusader in blocky form for The Lego Batman Movie. Our theory continues to seem correct in this brand new peek at The Lego Movie's first spin-off. Watch the latest trailer below.

There’s been a couple of very entertaining trailers already (including this rather brilliant one from Comic-Con), but this gives us our best look yet at the first of several new films in the Legoniverse.

We catch our diminutive hero at a lonely time in his life, accompanied only by his loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes). It’s not until excitable sidekick Robin (Michael Cera) comes along that Bats learns to spread his hi-tech wings.

Along the way, he’ll do battle with classic foe The Joker (Zach Galifianakis), and be forced to work with Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson), who appears to be in Commissioner Gordon’s role, rather than her usual Batgirl/Oracle incarnation.

Directed by Chris McKay, expect The Lego Movie’s deft balance of knowing witty comedy (did you spot those signs at the beginning?) and colourful stop-motion-inspired CG animation when The Lego Batman Movie arrives in UK cinemas on 10 February, 2017.
