Puter, Load Up Some ‘LEGO Batman Movie’ Facts
If you saw Tim Burton’s original Batman, you remember Billy Dee Williams playing the role of Gotham City District Attorney Harvey Dent. Williams never got to play Dent’s evil alter ego, though; when Dent became Two-Face in Batman Forever, the role was recast with Tommy Lee Jones. That all changed with The LEGO Batman Movie though, when Williams got to play Two-Face by providing the voice for the role in the new animated film. That’s just one of the LEGO facts featured in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!
The voices for most animated movies are recorded separately, but The LEGO Batman Movie’s Will Arnett and Zach Galifianakis actually recorded some of their scenes together in order to enable them to bounce improvisations off one another. The world of LEGO Batman is entirely computer generated, but if you were to attempt to recreate its Gotham City in real-world LEGO bricks, you would need a pretty big playroom; LEGO Batman’s Gotham is more than six football fields in length.
