The LEGO Batman movie asks "can Batman be happy?" and has incredible action

Everything sounds awesome so far when it comes to THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE which is set to arrive in 2017. Voice by Will Arnett, the characters was certainly one of the standouts of THE LEGO MOVIE last year and deservingly so is getting the spinoff treatment. Not a lot is known about the movie so far; we learned a little more yesterday about THE LEGO MOVIE 2, but nothing of substance yet for the blockhead caped crusader.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller will be producing the movie this time around as their co-director Chris McKay takes over directing duties. Recently MTV caught up with Lord, Miller, and Arnett and the excited trio couldn’t help give a few tidbits away, without spoilers of course.

Lord revealed the main story, saying:

No spoilers. But I will say I think the movie is really exciting because it’s about ‘Can Batman be happy?’

While that might seem like a very small nugget of information, as someone who has grown up surrounded by Batman, I would like an answer to that question! They also talked about the action in the movie with Lord saying that it is “incredible”, with Arnett adding that the footage he’s seen was “mind-boggling.” So with those items revealed, and that Lord and Miller previously said that THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE will acknowledge every era of Batman filmmaking, you’re all caught up.

I personally can’t wait to hear more about the movie; it sounds like there could be some surprise cameos by the way they avoid the question of having Adam West, Michael Keaton or Christian Bale show up. People always forget Val Kilmer.

Just having Arnett back is enough to make me want to see this, even if my kids were uninterested. Which they are not!

I'm in full agreement with SauronsBANE. Here is a character with 75 years of history and has been interpreted in so many different ways yet weathered through them all and remains at the forefront of popular culture. It will be fun to see a tongue-in-cheek look at that history, especially since Will Arnett's pompous Batman is really entertaining.

DARKNESS! NO PARENTS!

I love the concept for this - spoofing every era of Batman. The Lego Movie's Batman just might have been one of the best iterations of the character, simply because it mocks all the fanboys who take him WAY too seriously (and I say that as someone who adores Nolan's trilogy). If they keep that up with the Lego Batman spin-off and explore stuff like what makes him happy, this might actually be fun to see.

You have to admit though that he is indisputable one of the single greatest and most badass charecters ever created. I'm against taking anything too seriosly but I can get behind it for Batman a bit more than others.

Honestly..not really. He's usually portrayed as Bat-god in the comics and there's nothing more uninteresting than that. It's a great character in concept..as long as it doesn't take itself TOO seriously. Unfortunately, that's exactly what's happened recently. Over the years it has turned into nothing more than a way to appeal to teens and young adults who are attracted to the superficially grimdark elements, and it's a shame because Batman can offer so much more than that.

Again, I enjoyed

Again, I enjoyed the Nolan movies and all that, but I love how Lord and Miller are self-aware enough to realize how silly a character like Batman is, and to hilariously deconstruct him in these movies.

I think it would be a shame if they didn't get all of the actors who played Batman previously to lend their voices to this film. It would be incredible considering they're covering every era.
