Warner Bros. Animation has released a round of new pics from “The LEGO Batman Movie” that give us our first look at Joker (Zach Galifianakis), Harley Quinn (voice actor yet to be announced) and Robin (Michael Cera) in the film.
USA Today debuted the “LEGO Batman Movie” photos, which you can check out below, in addition to some previously released stills from the film:
Director Chris McKay (“Robot Chicken”) said of the film’s take on the Joker-Batman dynamic, “The Joker sees himself on the same level as Batman, a peer, at the top of the game…But Batman says that’s not the case, which sends Joker into a spiral trying to prove to Batman that he is indeed the greatest enemy.”
McKay revealed that, in the film, the LEGO Robin is a child that Bruce Wayne accidentally adopted from a charity auction. “Robin is a super-positive kid who always sees the glass as half full. Really, at the end of the day, he just wants a hug,” McKay said. “Michael [Cera] brings the sweetness and honesty.”
The film is set to explore Batman’s unwillingness to have a sidekick, and the annoying quirks that come along with having a Robin. “Lego Batman is ‘About a Boy’ as directed by Michael Mann…This is a single guy who suddenly has a kid literally drop into his world.”
“The LEGO Batman Movie” hits theaters on February 10.
