The LEGO Movie opened earlier this year and was a huge success. While a sequel was inevitable, The Hollywood Reports now says that Warner Bros. is making a LEGO Batman spinoff movie first. Batman was one of the highlights of The LEGO Movie, stealing every scene that he was in. With Will Arnett taking Christian Bale’s gravely voice to an extreme degree, the character was arrogant, dark, sarcastic, and just too-cool-for-this-adventure.

Will Arnett will reprise his role as the Dark Knight in LEGO Batman, and Chris McKay, the animation supervisor on The LEGO Movie, is set to direct. The script is being written by author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith. According to THR, Warner Bros. is hoping to have LEGO Batman out in 2017.

Here are some clips of Will Arnett as Batman from The LEGO Movie:
