If you’re not particularly a fan of Jared Leto’s Joker aesthetic in Suicide Squad, then the latest Joker-centric news may put a smile on that face (sorry): Zach Galifianakis is in talks to join Will Arnett’s Batman and Michael Cera’s Robin in the LEGO Batman movie as the voice of the iconic clown prince. Cue laughter.
The LEGO Movie is a project that consists entirely of inspired ideas, but casting the gravelly-voiced Will Arnett as Batman is probably in the top five. With the character’s spin-off in the works, the inspired casting continues! It seems that the soft-spoken Michael Cera is set voice Robin in LEGO Batman.
Netflix’s BoJack Horseman flew in (okay, ran in) under the radar last year, hiding one of the most layered and subversive comedies this side of Arrested Development behind a star-studded cast, and now has a brand-new attitude to debut in Season 2. The first full promo for BoJack Horseman’s 2015 run has arrived, bringing out plenty of new stars to boot.
One of the unexpected delights of last year proved to be Netflix’s Will Arnett / Aaron Paul animated comedy BoJack Horseman, one that was fortunate enough to gain a renewal, and now has its sights on a second coming. The streaming service has officially set a July premiere for BoJack Horseman’s return, along with an angelic new poster.
Although the Oscars infamously snubbed The LEGO Movie in the Best Animated Feature category, the joyous and hilarious movie got the last laugh at the ceremony itself. The film was nominated for its delightful song “Everything is Awesome!” and the live performance of the impossibly catchy number brought the house down and probably made everyone feel really bad about not giving the full movie its due.
We don’t yet know when Netflix will dust off ‘Arrested Development’ for another season (despite what certain stars might say), but Will Arnett certainly isn’t hurting for work at the streaming service. Following the success of ‘BoJack Horseman,’ Netflix has officially ordered Will Arnett’s new guru comedy ‘Flaked’ for a full season in 2016.
Just yesterday we reported on an update from filmmakers Phil Lord and Chris Miller regarding their script for ‘The LEGO Movie 2,’ who offered up some plot details for the coming sequel. Today brings another update from Lord and Miller—this time regarding the highly-anticipated spin-off ‘The LEGO Batman Movie,’ in which Will Arnett will reprise his role as everyone’s favorite brooding superhero. We kind of know what ‘The LEGO Movie 2' is about, but what will LEGO Batman's new spin-off be about?
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.
When 'The LEGO Movie' instantly became one of the biggest critical and financial successes of 2014, the sequel announcement was inevitable. However, in a surprising turn of events, 'The LEGO Movie 2' has been delayed in favor of a spin-off staring the film's hilariously twisted take on Batman. Yes, LEGO Batman is getting his own movie.
During the taping of last night's 'Conan,' the heartbreaking news of Robin Williams' passing was announced. Instead of ignoring the news or saving it for tomorrow or not acknowledging it, host Conan O'Brien took it upon himself to share it with a shocked studio audience, sidekick Andy Richter, and guest Will Arnett. Still stunned and reeling from the news, the trio -- all of whom had worked with Williams in the past -- shared their thoughts on the actor and comedian.
