With the mega success that was this year’s Lego Movie, we knew a sequel was on the way shortly. Well now THR reports that in addition, a ‘Lego Batman’ spinoff will also be hitting theaters.
Will Arnett will once again lend his voice as Batman in his own movie that’s being fast-tracked. Warner Bros. is looking for a 2017 release for the film, possibly right around Lego Movie 2. The Batman spinoff will be directed by Chris McKay, animation director on Lego Movie, and will be written by Seth Grahame-Smith. Lego Movie scribes Phil Lord and Chris Miller have also signed on as producers.
This will be the fourth Lego movie ordered, with Ninjago premiering September 23, 2016.
