Today is Batman Day and to celebrate the character’s 75 anniversary, Warner Bros. has released a new poster for The LEGO Batman Movie. The poster features Will Arnett’s Batman springing into action with some simple words of advice, “Always be yourself, unless you can be Batman.”
The LEGO Batman Movie is set for release on Feb. 10, 2017 and remember, always be Batman.
Earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter has released some information regarding next year’s The LEGO Ninjago Movie. If you’re going to watch the Storks next month, there will be a five-minute animated short shown in the beginning for Ninjago called The Master: A LEGO Ninjago Short. It will feature Jackie Chan as Master Wu who “gets into a conflict with Chicken” voiced by Abbi Jacobson while the short will be narrated by Justin Theroux.
If you remember, the cast of The LEGO Ninjago Movie was announced a few weeks ago with some big name actors/actresses including Chan, Jacobson, and Theroux, among others. Jacobson will also be voicing Nya while Theroux will be voicing Garmadon. The LEGO Ninjago Movie itself will open on September 22, 2017 and it is rumored there will be LEGO Ninjago Movie sets as well as a Collectible Minifigures line to be released in conjunction.
The rumor mill keeps turning as there is now more in-depth information about The LEGO Batman Movie sets. We already know of two confirmed sets which was revealed during SDCC with The Batmobile (70905) and The Joker’s Notorious Lowrider (70906) but it has been reported that there will be about 15 total sets coming out for the film.
Delta Customs over on Instagram has given some more infomation about few more The LEGO Batman Movie sets. First is the new Arkham Asylum which will be at least $100 and around the size of the previous version. The minifigures that are in the set include Batman, Barbara Gordon, Aaron Cash, 2 Arkham Guards, and Harleen Quinzel. In addition, there are also minifigures in jumpsuits which include the Joker, Two-Face, the Riddler, and three more villains.
Next up is a the new movie Batcave. Some details of it include an area where Batman’s suits are hanging as seen in the trailer some of which include the Disco suit and the Diving suit. There will also be a walkway which leads to the bat-shaped Bat-Computer which is also seen in the trailer. The Alfred minifigure is reported to be one of the minifigures in the set and is seen trying to escape some Penguin minions. The vehicles of the Batcave include a Batboat and a brick-built duck for Penguin.
In other LEGO Batman Movie set news, there will be a lot of obscure minifigure characters like Tarantula as well as some from the Batman Rogues Gallery such as Zebra Man, Kite Man, and Calendar Man. Also, there will be Mr. Freeze in some sort of exo-suit in a smaller set and it includes Batman and a hostage. Some folks over on Eurobricks has also reported some other sets like a Penguin car and a Catwoman bike set. Finally, The LEGO Batman Movie Collectible Minifigures line is reported to have 20 minifigures instead of the usual 16.
Of course everything reported above, minus the confirmed sets, is purely speculation but Delta Customs has given information before and they turned out to be real in the end so fingers crossed.
Update: Delta Customs has provided more information on The LEGO Batman Movie sets.
There’s supposedly a new Batwing that is different from the one seen in the trailer and is shaped as a bat. The cockpit will be the head of the bat and Poison Ivy will be included in the set.
For the Killer Croc set, Killer Croc himself is the size of the Rancor if you have that figure. The set will have various swamp-type builds as well as a red pick-up truck. The minifigures included in the set are Batman, Killer Croc, Zebra Man, and Tarantula.
LEGO has officially announced some of the voice actors that will be in next year’s The LEGO Ninjago Movie. The list is pretty much the same as the one that came out a few months ago which was revealed from a Warner Bros. catalog. The only difference is the new actors that have been added including Justin Theroux and Olivia Munn as Lloyd’s parents. Check out the press release below.

Garmadon – Justin Theroux
Lloyd – Dave Franco
Lloyd’s mom Koko – Olivia Munn

In this big-screen Ninjago adventure, the battle for Ninjago City calls to action young Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret warriors and LEGO Master Builders.

Earlier today at San Diego Comic Con, Warner Bros. had their panel and showed off all the upcoming movies they have on the slate including The LEGO Batman Movie. The official SDCC 2016 trailer of the movie is now available and it there’s all new footage to drool over, especially for all the potential sets that may come out next year.
The trailer also shows Michael Cera as Dick Grayson and him messing around with Batman’s other suits like El Murcielago, Glam Bat, and Raggae Man which turns out to be Robin’s suit of his choosing minus a couple of pieces here and there. There are rumors that there will be a minifigure series based on the movie so don’t be surprised if we see a couple of the suits in the trailer as actual minifigures.
The LEGO Batman Movie will be released in theaters February 2017.
Warner Bros. has released a new poster for The LEGO Batman Movie in conjunction with the panel that is happening at San Diego Comic Con 2016. The image shows Bruce Wayne taking off his cowl to show off his look, most notably the new hairstyle. There will also be a new trailer very soon so stay tuned for that.
Earlier today, LEGO has published official images of two The LEGO Batman Movie sets which are The Batmobile (70905) and The Joker Notorious Lowrider (70906). We’ll see the two sets being displayed at San Diego Comic Con this weekend. Below is a little description of the two sets.
The Batmobile (70905) has 581 pieces and it includes minifigures of Batman, Robin, Man-Bat, and the Kabuki Twins. Batman has a new belt attachment piece while Robin wears some of the new green goggles which we saw before. Man-Bat looks like the same one we’ve in in a previous set while The Kabuki Twins are brand new. We’ll see how the assassins will play part in the movie later on. The Batmobile will retail for $59.99.
The Joker Notorious Lowrider (70906) has 433 pieces and will retail for $49.99. It is the one that we saw an image of yesterday with the character reveal and it includes minifigures of Batgirl, The Joker, and Harley Quinn. All three minifigures have new printing on them and the Lowrider is an interesting looking build as well.
