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.
This very week will see Will Arnett returning to Netflix for BoJack Horseman Season 3 in a year that’s already seen the Arrested Development star headlining his own live-action series, but questions inevitably return to the Bluths. A fifth Arrested season is still in the works, but according to Arnett, the producers “need to get their s— together.”
The first teaser for The LEGO Batman Movie was appropriately Bat-heavy and even more delightful than we could have imagined. And while Will Arnett’s narcissistic Dark Knight probably doesn’t care too much about his co-stars, we’ve been anxious to see what some of Batman’s other famous characters will look like in the upcoming LEGO Movie spinoff. Thankfully, the wait is over.
And lo, the internet was gifted a first trailer for BoJack Horseman Season 3 this week, albeit without the strictest sense of what to expect from the down-and-out horseman’s post-Secretariat resurgence. Now, a new batch of photos give us clue into the July premiere, including BoJack and Princess Carolyn’s early days, and an encounter with Officer Meow Meow Fuzzyface.
The very core of Netflix’s melancholy BoJack Horseman sees the title star dealing with life after fame, and the second go around isn’t running much more smoothly. Oscars loom as BoJack finds fame anew in the first official Season 3 trailer, ahead of the Horseman’s July 22 return.
