Lego Batman Movie drops TV spot with lots of new footage

I don't know about you guys, but I haven't really been feeling LEGO BATMAN. And it's not because I need my Batman dark 'n gritty (I loved the recent BRAVE AND THE BOLD cartoon, and even appreciate the satirical humor of the Adam West series), it's just I haven't liked the trailers up 'til now. They seemed to be trying too hard (Batman's whining turning into a beat-box being one of the most egregious examples. Ugh).

But I have hope! I loved Will Arnett's take on Batman in THE LEGO MOVIE, and the people behind it are talented, so maybe they can actually pull this off. Let's see if this new TV spot can change my mind:

It seems they're really focusing on the "Robin as Batman's son" angle, which is cool, since it might be a while before we ever see (an alive) Robin again in the DCEU. And the jokes are definitely better than previous trailers (the "it's weirder if it's not your son" line is legit, as is Batman's comment about Alfred watching Lifetime movies). So there's hope, even if I'm still not quite convinced. 

But I'm also a curmudgeon with a dark, shriveled heart. So what do you Schmoes think? You guys down for this? Sound off below!

Either way, LEGO BATMAN will swoosh into theaters February 10th, 2017
