    As much as I love Batman, DC needs to stop milking him to death and give the spotlight to some other members.
    for example, I myself would love to see a superman and green lantern buddy cop movie!
    wait, never mind.

    USA Today has debuted 4 new images from the upcoming The LEGO Movie spinoff, The LEGO Batman Movie.


    At first glance I though Robin was Carrie Kelly. Turns out its just Dick Grayson made to look more like Michael Cera.

    The panel confirmed (around 7:35) there's going to be plenty of obscure villains, specifically Orca, Doctor Phosphorus, the Kabuki Twins (who are also in one of the upcoming toylines), Mime, and the Mutant Leader from TDKR.

    Wait, the Kabuki Twins from The Batman? Wow, I was wondering if we would ever see them again :anime:.

    Another new trailer!



    It's astounding how much better this looks than the trash pile of DC-related movies we've gotten these past couple of years.

    So...the police haven't been teaming up with Batman prior to now? What the heck has Gordon been doing then, just letting Batman do everything :sweat:?

    Oh wait, that actually sounds about right :p.

    Looks really fun. Could this be even better than The Lego Movie?

    Rosario Dawson is voicing Barbara? That's cool, but didn't she also voice Wonder Woman once? Whatever, I like Dawson.

    Yeah, she was Wonder Woman in Justice League: Throne of Atlantis and Justice League vs Teen Titans, plus she was Artemis in the Wonder Woman animated movie. So Rosario Dawson is definitely expanding the superhero part of her career!

    And I am very excited for The Lego Batman Movie to say the least, so I simply cannot wait for February just to laugh my head off with some Batman fun. ;)

    I love that trailer. Definitely looking forward to the movie more.
    Also, that remix of that classic Starship song is a must have.

    It looks like more villains might have been revealed for The Lego Batman Movie. One of the Lego toy sets for the film includes the Riddler, Kite-Man, Calendar Man and Magpie! It's really cool to see Batman's rogue gallery mined so much. Only a few animated shows like Batman: The Brave and the Bold and Beware the Batman have done the same.

    Speaking of which, Calendar Man represents his Brave and the Bold counterpart while Magpie represents her Beware counterpart! It's truly awesome to see Beware actually have an influence on a different Batman medium. Alongside the Kabuki twins, animation definitely seems to be accounted for.

    If these villains (besides Riddler) appear in the movie and not just the toy sets, I hope they are more than blink-and-you'll-miss-them cameos. Just give me a few seconds to take them all in and I'll be so happy!

    From the trailers, it does look like there's a big sequence where Batman faces down his entire Rogues Gallery in Lego form, so it's cool to see a lot of them will be represented and appear in this movie, as well as serving as references to past Batman cartoons :D.

    I hope Joker isn't the only villain with a speaking role though :sweat:.

    Billy Dee Williams will voice Two-Face in The Lego Batman Movie which means he will finally assume the role after playing Harvey Dent in Batman (1989). Since he didn't reprise the role in Batman Forever, this is the first time he will finally get to do so after nearly three decades!

    I'm so happy for him because he really wanted to play Two-Face but it didn't happen even though he was the first live-action Harvey Dent. I was hoping a DC Classic Original Movies title based on the Michael Keaton Batman movies would allow him to voice Two-Face but this works too.
    Actors confirmed to voice villains: Zach Galifianakis as the Joker, Jenny Slate as Harley Quinn, Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face

    It only took a decade or two, but Billy Dee Williams finally gets to play Two-Face :D.

    New poster featuring a fraction of the movie's cast.

    Can you name them all?
