File this one under “whatttt???”. It looks like we won’t have to wait too long to see Batman back on the big screen after The Dark Knight Rises. Variety just broke the news that Will Arnett will be the voice of Batman in a new Warner Bros. movie Lego: The Piece of Resistance. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are directing the family comedy, which is said to be part live action, part Lego-animation. Variety reports that Lego: The Piece of Resistance has been in development since 2008 as part of their ongoing relationship with Lego.
Update: Turns out this isn’t a “Lego Batman movie”. It’s a Lego movie with lots of famous character cameos. Batman is there, but probably won’t be a main character. Thanks to commenter lethargicj for the heads up!
