Sure, "The Lego Batman Movie" is a silly animated comedy about egocentric superheroes. But this brand-new 30-second commercial is suggesting that the movie will partially delve into Batman's darkest fear: his fear of "being a part of a family again." Particularly, the awkward feelings he has about being a father to his adopted sidekick, Robin a.k.a. 'The Boy Wonder.'
Featuring the voices of Will Arnett as Batman, Michael Cera as Robin, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred, and Rosario Dawson as "police lady" Barbara Gordon with Zach Galifianakis as the Joker, " The Lego Batman Movie" will be arriving in theaters next month on February 10.
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made "The LEGO Movie" a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble -- LEGO Batman -- stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
