Batman will return to the big screen in the most anticipated movie of 2016, “Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.” Fans would likely assume that following that, we’d most likely see The Dark Knight on the silver screen in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” film. While that’s a great assumption, it may not be accurate.  According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris McKay, the animation supervisor on Lego Movie, was initially set to direct that project’s sequel. However, the movie is being pushed back and McKay is now helming the Lego Batman movie, which is being written by author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith. Warners is eyeing a 2017 release for the spinoff.”  In the original Lego movie, Batman was voiced by Canadian actor Will Arnett.  In that movie, “Batman was one of the highlights of the movie, stealing every scene that he was in. With Arnett taking Christian Bale’s gravely voice to an extreme degree, the character was arrogant, dark, sarcastic, and just too-cool-for-this-adventure.”

First, let me say that as a Batman fan I am 100% on board with this decision. Secondly, as a Canadian, it’s nice to have Batman being played by a fellow countryman. Thirdly, like myself, Will Arnett is a hard-core fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Ergo, by association, Batman is a fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs.  My mind is now blown.  Congratulations Warner Brothers, this decision guarantee’s you will have my money on opening night.
