Will Arnett’s Batman was by far the hilarious standout of The LEGO Movie, and we’re a little less than a month away from seeing his solo movie take off. But it seems another character might be stealing the show from Batman this time: Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, is featured in a new TV spot for The LEGO Batman Movie that shows the Dark Knight might have met his match.
We’re far enough from the premiere that you’d barely remember Arrested Development Season 4 as one of the first Netflix original offerings, but at long last, Season 5 might finally escape its own arrested development. Producer Brian Grazer says the last cast hurdles have been cleared, and news should be “happening soon.”
A few weeks ago, I attended a holiday party where Nick Offerman’s ‘Yule Log’ played in the background for the entire evening. As people milled about the living room, passing appetizers and making polite introductions, the wise face of Nick Offerman beamed forth from the television, taking occasional sips from a glass of whisky and listening to the crackling fire. And despite years spent listening to Mannheim Steamroller and Frank Sinatra around the holidays, it was the silence of Nick Offerman’s fake living room that now sounds the most like Christmas to me.
Looks like little LEGO Batman has put his ego aside (well, sort of) in the new poster for The LEGO Batman Movie, which features several famous Bat-villains and a handful of friends — does LEGO Batman actually have friends? Seems like he’d probably view them all as acquaintances that he regards with passive ambivalence, at best. Either way, you can kill a few minutes on this day that is definitely not Friday yet by seeing if you can name all the characters featured on this new poster.
Although just about every character in The LEGO Movie was delightful enough to deserve their own spinoff, only one truly warranted it: Will Arnett’s hilariously narcissistic Batman. The new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie expands on what made that character so great, functioning as both a loving sendup and amazing satire of the iconic superhero. It’s kind of perfect.
One of the great things about The LEGO Movie is that the characters are so interesting that almost all of them could potentially warrant their own spinoff. That’s especially true in the case of Will Arnett’s Batman, who not only has decades of comic-book, film and television history to work with, but an entire sandbox of merchandise to go along with all of it — including an insane number of vehicles. You can see some of them in a new image from The LEGO Batman Movie, but we have to imagine that this photo barely scratches the surface.
It looks for a moment as if Will Arnett’s Netflix sobriety dramedy Flaked might go down as one of the streaming service’s first one-and-done series, but consider the tab open. Flaked has officially confirmed a Season 2 renewal, keeping Arnett with a minimum of three major Netflix roles.
To be honest, we were already sold on The LEGO Batman Movie based on the hilarious teaser alone, but after getting our first look at The Joker and Robin (and Harley Quinn!) earlier this week, we’ve been looking forward to watching a full trailer for the mini-Dark Knight’s animated adventure. And now that trailer has officially arrived, giving us a better sneak peek at The LEGO Movie spinoff starring Will Arnett’s delightfully narcissistic Batman.
In addition to a fantastic new poster for Wonder Woman, Warner Bros. has also revealed another teaser poster for The LEGO Batman Movie, which will join Gal Gadot’s standalone film at Comic-Con tomorrow — along with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Kong: Skull Island and more. Although the latest poster for the animated Dark Knight’s new spinoff film is a little misleading, it’s still pretty cool.
BoJack Horseman picked a hell of a weekend to debut his third Netflix season, to coincide with the madness of Comic-Con 2016, but never you fear an end to that binge. The star-studded animated comedy will get right back to Horsin’ Around in 2017, as Netflix confirms Season 4 for BoJack Horseman.
