Will Arnett to Voice Batman in Big Screen Lego Film
Posted by geeksyndicate on June 28, 2012
First off if you’ve not played Lego Batman 2 yet go out pick up a copy now and play it…don’t worry I’ll wait…waiting…waiting. Now tell me that wasn’t that not only the best Lego game out there but also a fantastic rendition of some of the most beloved of characters from the hallowed stables of DC Comics.
One of the things I was a little unsure about, before playing the game, was whether having our Lego heroes speak for the first time would work but after the first cut scene I found myself demanding more cut scenes. I was also thinking this would make for a pretty cool film and on this point Warner’s Bros agrees with me.
Over on Variety it’s been announced that a Lego film is in development called “Lego: The Piece of Resistance” and Will Arnett will be donning the cowl as Batman. The rumour is that the filmmakers are looking at Channing Tantum to star as Superman.
It will be interesting to see how well the Lego characters will translate to the big screen. I hope they involve the teams that scripted the current batch of Lego games as with them on board I think there’s a lot of potential for a fun film with some great in jokes.
