LEGO Batman’s Robin to be voiced by Michael Cera.

Michael Cera has signed on to voice the caped crusader’s sidekick in the upcoming The LEGO Movie spinoff, LEGO Batman, EW has confirmed with Cera’s rep. When news of the movie first surfaced, it was indicated LEGO Batman would be taking the slot that had originally been reserved for the second LEGO Movie, and that it will be arriving in 2017.

Warner Bros. wasted no time mounting its own Lego Cinematic Universe after the enormous success of “The Lego Movie.” That meant a regular sequel, but also a spin-off for one of its most popular characters, Batman, as voiced by Will Arnett. The humorous Atlantis, published in 1985, is set in the first half of the 20th century and tells of a young man who becomes entangled in a quasi-religious cult, centered on the lost city of Atlantis, named the Gnomon Society. Presuming it follows the adventures of Batman in the Lego-verse rather than the one presented in the original movie, the movie will include friends and foes of the world. Everything is awesome for LEGO Movie lovers: Following the massive success of the computer-animated, toy-inspired comedy, Warner Bros. has announced not just one, but three follow-up films. In addition to the Batman spinoff, fans of the franchise have a sequel to look forward to in 2018, as well as the ninja-themed Ninjago movie in the fall of 2017.

According to THR, Cera also is planning a directing project, and as such has acquired the film rights for Masters of Atlantis, a novel by the author of True Grit. So it’s a little “Arrested Development” reunion as Arnett will be back of course to voice Batman. “The Lego Batman Movie” is due February 10, 2017. Let’s hope if they include every Batman villain and character it still retains its own distinctive flavor apart from the current Batman movies, and I mean more than just a comedic PG-version.
