After the massive success of Warner Bros. The LEGO Movie, it should come as no surprise that one of the movie's breakout characters, LEGO Batman, would be getting his own standalone film.
Now we're happy report even more good news, LEGO Batman has officially found his right-hand man, Alfred Pennyworth in Ralph Fiennes.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar-nominated Fiennes, who also famously played Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter franchise, will voice Batman's butler and caretaker in the upcoming film. A match made in casting Heaven.
This isn't Fienne's first brush with voice acting. Fans may recognize his work in the Wallace & Gromit feature, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit back in 2005. From the looks of this A-list cast, the LEGO Batman movie is already shaping up to be a big hit.
Reprising his role from the 2014 animated comedy, Will Arnett will once again be playing the caped crusader. But this time, he'll be at the forefront of all the action. Along with Arnett, Fiennes joins Michael Cera as Robin, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, and Zach Galifianakis as the Joker.
'LEGO Batman' movie is set to premiere on February 10, 2017.
