In this 3D animated series of The Lego Batman Movie, Bruce Wayne must not only deal with the criminals of Gotham City, but also the responsibility of raising a boy he adopted.
Check out the trivia of this superhero animated action-comedy flick:
Morgan Freeman, who appeared in the Dark Knight trilogy and The Lego Movie, said that “The Lego Movie’s” “Batman” is his favorite incarnation of the character.
To Do Or Not To Do
Billy Dee Williams voices the nefarious Two-Face in this movie. Williams had previously portrayed Two-Face’s “good” alter ego, Harvey Dent, in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989). He was very eager to also portray Two-Face but did not get the chance to, due to Joel Schumacher taking over the franchise with Batman Forever (1995) and recasting the role with Tommy Lee Jones.
Voice Over Game
In early casting, Guillermo del Toro & Steve Buscemi were the front runners for voicing Bane and The Joker, respectively.
The Iconic Laugh
Batman’s crazy laugh is actually voiced by the director, Chris McKay. It was originally a placeholder before Will Arnett’s laugh was to be put in, but never ended up being changed.
Ralph Fiennes is the third Academy Award-nominated British actor to play the character Alfred Pennyworth. The others are Michael Caine in the Dark Knight trilogy and Jeremy Irons in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
The trailers for the film feature different variants of the Bat Suit. One of these variants is labeled “2011 Comic-Con Exclusive”. This suit is a mini-figure that was given out in raffles at New York Comic-Con and San Diego Comic-Con in 2011 to coincide with Lego re-launching the Superheroes theme. The mini-figure is based off of Christian Bale’s suit from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Another recognizable suit that’s visible is Terry McGinnis’s suit from the animated cartoon Batman Beyond.
This incarnation of Robin bears a striking resemblance to Carrie Kelley’s Robin from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel.
