Batman And Superman To Star In The Same Movie…A LEGO Movie
I could have been really mean and made you think Batman and Superman were going to be in an actual movie together, but I didn’t and you’re welcome. Variety is reporting that LEGO is working on a movie pairing up the two heroes ahead of the real life Justice League movie.
The film is tentatively being called Lego: The Piece of Resistance and will have Will Arnett voicing Batman. Offers have been made for Channing Tatum to voice Superman, but he may not be able to fit it into his schedule. Park and Recreations Chris Pratt will voice the lead character Emmet, who is described as
an ordinary, law-abiding, rules-following, perfectly average Lego mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary MasterBuilder. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will team up with Chris McKay from Robot Chicken to direct the film. There is also word that the film will have its own characters, but several characters from already well-established Lego adaptations will pop up. Supposedly, licensing deals are trying to be made so Yoda and Indiana Jones can appear in Lego movies. The film is scheduled for February 2014.
While it is slightly disappointing that it is only a Lego movie after folks on Twitter were teasing a Batman and Superman movie, the games have been pretty good and could make for an interesting flick.
