USA Today has released some new images of some of the characters that will be in The LEGO Batman Movie including the Joker, Harley Quinn, and Robin. As mentioned before Zach Galifianakis will be voicing Joker while Michael Cera will be voicing Robin. There’s no mention yet on who will be voicing Harley.
As you can see Robin, has a very different look that what we’ve been used to seeing with the goggles that makes his eyes look huge and a shiny yellow cape. Robin does have a very close resemblance to Carrie Kelley from Frank Miller’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. As for the Joker, his mouth looks like it’s been painted on. We can also see Joker’s vehicle that Harley Quinn is driving.
Director Chris McKay hints that “We’re going deep in Batman lore and DC Comics lore. Batman’s Rogues Gallery is going to be completely filled out in LEGO.” If you’re familiar with Batman lore, the Rogues Gallery is basically a term for all the villains that Batman has faced so there could possibly be a lot more villains in the movie besides the Joker and Harley Quinn.
There will also be a new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie coming this week when it is shown off at San Diego Comic Con.
Update: CM4Sci on Eurobricks is reporting there will be two sets to be displayed at SDCC this week.
