Ben Affleck may be getting all the shine right now thanks to his Cavill-battling performance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that doesn't mean audiences have forgotten about the only true non-Michael Keaton Batman in existence: Will Arnett. With the arrival of the first teaser for next year's The LEGO Batman Movie, Arnett beatboxes and microwaves his way back into the spotlight with hilarious ease:
His penchant for nuked Lobster Thermidor aside, Arnett's decidedly miniature take on the Caped Crusader is clearly the definitive take on the classic DC character. For those into stuff like plots and narrative, feel free to peep the official synopsis below:
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.
The clearly Oscar-worthy LEGO Batman movie, also starring Zach Galifianakis and Rosario Dawson, hits theaters on Feb. 10 of next year. If 2014's super great LEGO Movie is any indication, be prepared to take a totally hilarious but slightly existential journey through the weird but wonderful world of human emotion.
