Here's Your First Look at the Next Batman Movie
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice doesn't even hit theaters until the end of this week, but we're already getting our first look at Batman's next solo movie. And no, I'm not talking about an upcoming Ben Affleck film. I'm talking about the real Batman: Lego Batman.

USA Today is giving us our first look at the upcoming animated feature, which will see Will Arnett voice the Caped Crusader again after doing a fantastic job in The Lego Movie. The movie will largely focus on Batman's life as a loner in the Batcave with no friends other than his butler, Alfred (Ralph Fiennes), until his lifestyle is threatened by the arrival of Robin (Michael Cera) and Batgirl (Rosario Dawson). Zach Galifianakis will also appear as the Joker, and Mariah Carey rounds out the cast as the Gotham Mayor. Arnett says of the film:

Opening quote
"The Batcave is even better than we remembered it, it's awesome ... But I also love getting into the ho-hum day-to-day of being Batman and what it's like to fight crime each day. Like the idea of Batman oversleeping his alarm clock makes me laugh. It really does humanize him."
Closing quote


This new funny, casual take on Batman sounds pretty great, and are definitely a far cry from the Batman in the new DC film universe. The first trailer for the film is expected to debut on Wednesday, and the movie will arrive in theaters on February 10 of next year, but for now, take a look at the first images from the film below.
