Everything is awesome! And everything is especially awesome now that The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Warner Bros. is working on giving, arguably the best character in the whole Lego Movie, Batman his very own Lego movie. And lucky for us, it's being fast-tracked!
As of right now, [The LEGO Movie 2](movie:1231804) is going to take a backseat as Chris McKay, who was set to direct the sequel, will instead focus his energy on the Lego Batman spinoff. The film will be written by Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows, [The Fantastic Four](movie:34667)) while Phil Lord, and Christopher Miller, and others from the Lego screen team will be producing.
Further huzzahs are in order with the news that Will Arnett will be reprising his role as the Dark Knight himself.
Warner is looking at a 2017 release date for the movie, but before Batman gets his big feature film, we will get to see one more Lego movie [Ninjago](movie:1025772), set to open Sept. 23, 2016.
