Michael Cera is no stranger to comic-related films after his starring role in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, but he’ll be returning to the silver screen in a heroic role…sort of.
In the wake of the wildly popular LEGO Movie, the upcoming spiritual sequel (or spin-off, depending how you look at it) LEGO Batman has cast Cera as its Robin, as reported by Hollywood Reporter.
Cera will play opposite the sublimely caricatured Batman, played by Will Arnett (the one time you’ll hear his comedically dark Batman called ‘sublime’), and the film features the return of much of the production talent from the LEGO Movie, including ambition supervisor Chris McKay.
LEGO Batman: The Movie is set to open in 2017, and was an easy choice with the combined success of the LEGO Batman video game franchise and Arnett’s memorable turn as the character.
What pop culture and DC references are you hoping to see show up in the movie?
