It was only matter of time, but this is still mostly good news to me. After the phenomenal success of The LEGO Movie (and a delay in production on The LEGO Movie 2) Warner Bros. is fast-tracking a spinoff in the form of a LEGO Batman movie. Will Arnett, whose character was a highlight of the amazing first film, will return to voice the hilarious character. Chris McKay, who acted as animation supervisor on the first film and was attached to direct the sequel, will how helm this picture.
LEGO Batman will be written by Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe Seth Grahame-Smith and is targeting a 2017 release date. Hit the jump for more on the LEGO Batman movie.
