Like most of us, Robin swoons at the mere thought of a “Happy New Year” toast from the Brick Knight in this new teaser for “The LEGO Batman Movie.”
In the all-too-brief clip, we see Will Arnett’s Bruce Wayne offer up his best Jay Gatsby/Leonardo DiCaprio imression before quickly transforming into the Caped Crusader, much to the delight of Michael Cera’s giggling, wide-eyed Boy Wonder.
Directed by Chris McKay from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith, the 3D animated spinoff features a Batman who must overcome his fear of being part of a family, take responsibility for his adopted son, and learn the importance of teamwork if he hopes to stop The Joker’s takeover of Gotham City.
As we see in the teaser, and in a previously released still, Bruce Wayne is a sharp dresser in either identity. “In all the Batman movies, there’s always a big gala, but one of the things Batman doesn’t like doing is going out and seeing people and carousing as Bruce Wayne,” McKay said. “He thinks Bruce Wayne is a bummer. He’d much rather be doing Batmanny things.”
Opening Feb. 10, “The LEGO Batman Movie” also stars Zach Galifianakis as Joker, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Mariah Carey as Mayor McCasskill, Jenny Slate as Harley Quinn and Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face.
