Michael Cera Cast as Robin in "LEGO Batman"

The in-development "LEGO Batman" will feature a familiar voiced paired with Will Arnett: The Hollywood Reporter has word that Michael Cera has been cast as Robin in the upcoming animated feature, alongside Arnett's LEGO Dark Knight.

The two are both among the main cast of the acclaimed comedy series "Arrested Development" (slated to return on Netflix for a fifth season next year) with Arnett playing Gob and Cera as his nephew, George Michael. Arnett first voiced LEGO Batman -- a memorably comedic take on the iconic DC Comics hero -- in last year's "The LEGO Movie." This marks Cera's return to comic book-based material, after starring in 2010's "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World."

Directed by Chris McKay, animation supervisor on "The LEGO Movie," "The LEGO Batman Movie" is scheduled for release in 2017.
