New images from The Lego Batman Movie reveal Robin, Joker, and Harley Quinn

The Lego Batman Movie Will Arnett Michael Cera

Ben Affleck isn't the only actor set to return as Batman in the near future, Will Arnett will also be donning the cape and cowl (in LEGO form) once again for the upcoming LEGO BATMAN MOVIE. Arnett's take on the dark knight was one of the many surprising highlights of Chris Miller and Phil Lord's THE LEGO MOVIE, so it wasn't a shock when a spin-off featuring the character was announced.

Several new images from the film have been released courtesy of USA Today and feature Will Arnett's Batman, Zach Galifianakis' Joker, Michael Cera's Robin, and, if you look closely enough, Harley Quinn behind the wheel of the Joker's car. Chris McKay, director of THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, was also kind enough to spill a few details about the characters joining Batman in his animated adventure

A new LEGO BATMAN MOVIE trailer, which will be revealed later this week at Comic-Con, will give us a better idea of what this spin-off will be about and what sets Batman and the Joker against each other. "The Joker sees himself on the same level as Batman, a peer, at the top of the game," says director Chris McKay. "But Batman says that’s not the case, which sends Joker into a spiral trying to prove to Batman that he is indeed the greatest enemy."

Dick Grayson enters Batman's world when he's accidently adopted at a charity auction by billionaire Bruce Wayne. Chris McKay says that "Robin is a super-positive kid who always sees the glass as half full. Really, at the end of the day, he just wants a hug. Michael brings the sweetness and honesty."

"That's kind of The Joker's General Patton car, where he can survey the battle. It’s loud and flashy, the inner view of himself writ large in car form with crazy, zebra-striped seats."

Batman's relationship with Robin isn't exactly ideal as he definitely prefers to do his crime-fighting solo with maximum brooding (darkness!) Not to be deterred, Robin actually breaks into Batman's wardrobe and fashions himself a sparkly new suit, complete with a distractingly flappy cape.

THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE is set for a February 10, 2017 release.
