While many fans were anxiously waiting to see how Ben Affleck would do under the cape and cowl of the Dark Knight in ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’, another Caped Crusader barged in to put a collective smile on all of our faces. Following his breakout role in ‘The LEGO Movie’, Will Arnett will return to voice Batman in ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’ next year. But ahead of one of the most anticipated superhero movies of all time, WB dropped the first teaser for the upcoming animated feature from director Chris McKay and writer Seth Grahame-Smith. And now not even a week after that one, we have yet another sneak peek at the film featuring the tiny, plastic version of Gotham City’s feared vigilante.
At this point, we’ve all seen a multitude of retellings of Batman’s origin story. Even the youngest Bat-fan could tell you that Bruce Wayne’s parents were killed by a gunman when he was young. Although, there’s a good chance that you haven’t seen the hero deal with the loss like this before. For this new teaser, Ralph Fiennes joins Arnett’s Batman as loyal butler Alfred Pennyworth at Wayne Manor as they look back at the various other times that Bats was portrayed on the big screen and avoid talking about their feelings. You can check it out below followed by the film’s synopsis:
In the irreverent spirit of fun that made ‘The LEGO Movie’ a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

Despite being a “professional writer”, Ben likes run-on sentences and puns far too much. For more of his attempts at being funny and the occasional insightful thought, follow him on Twitter and Instagram.
