We’ve seen Batman envisioned time and again on screens big and small, and yet it took a tiny LEGO version of the character to take us by surprise with Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s hilarious take on the character in this year’s ‘The LEGO Movie.’ Voiced by Will Arnett, this version of Batman lovingly satirized the Caped Crusader. The character was such a hit that we’re getting a spinoff in 2017 ahead of the ‘LEGO Movie’ sequel, and the writers have dropped some details about what we can expect.

'The LEGO Movie 2' Will Have More Female Characters Because Everything Is Awesome With More Lady LEGOs

One of the most delightful (and most successful) films of 2014 was ‘The LEGO Movie,’ which offered directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller a world filled with creative possibilities. Two of our favorite characters in the first film were Wyldstyle and Princess Unikitty, which were the only two leading female characters. Not to knock ‘The LEGO Movie,’ but I'm just saying: based on the strength of those characters alone and the vast possibilities in the LEGO-verse, why not have more lady LEGO characters? Lord and Miller are aware of this, which is why there will definitely be more female characters in the sequel.

'22 Jump Street' gave us one of the most hilarious end credits sequences in comedy history, and one that seemed to signal to audiences that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were done with making 'Jump Street' movies, as it delivered concepts for about 20 fake sequels. But not so fast: '22 Jump Street' writer Rodney Rothman has been hired to return for '23 Jump Street,' so it seems like Ice Cube's threat to send our favorite undercover cops to medical school might not be out of the question.

Everyone loves Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The writing-directing team behind 'The LEGO Movie' and this Friday's '22 Jump Street' have directed movies both critically beloved and commercially successful (the former is the highest-rated movie of the year on Rotten Tomatoes and the second-biggest movie of the year in terms of the box office). It's easy to understand why: like their films, these guys are smart, funny and lacking in any kind of cynicism.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller may have passed up on 'Ghostbusters 3,' but that's completely fine with us if they keep making movies that look as funny as '22 Jump Street'. Today, the final red-band trailer has arrived and, in the rare case of the comedy sequel, it looks just as funny as the first.

Channing Tatum can do many things -- dance like no one's watching ('Magic Mike'), protect the President ('White House Down') and transform into a lupine warrior ('Jupiter Ascending'), to name a few -- but it looks like one thing he can't do is pull off a Latin America accent. Or at least Jenko can't. The first '22 Jump Street' clip dropped online, along with a batch of new photos and a poster, giving us a look at one of the more funny moments glimpsed from the trailers.
