The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Morgan Freeman, who appeared in the Dark Knight trilogy and The Lego Movie (2014), said that "The Lego Movie's" "Batman" is his favorite incarnation of the character.
Billy Dee Williams voices the nefarious Two-Face in this movie. Williams had previously portrayed Two-Face's "good" alter ego, Harvey Dent, in Tim Burton's Batman (1989). He was very eager to also portray Two-Face but did not get the chance to due to Joel Schumacher taking over the franchise with Batman Forever (1995) and recasting the role with Tommy Lee Jones.
Ralph Fiennes is the third Academy Award-nominated British actor to play the character Alfred Pennyworth. The others are Michael Caine in the Dark Knight trilogy and Jeremy Irons in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016).
The Joker appearance is similar to his appearance from The Batman (2004) as he looks more feral with sharp teeth and wears long clothing.
Will feature many villains from Batman's Rogues Gallery such as, but not limited to, The Joker, Harley Quinn, Bane, The Riddler, Two-Face, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, The Penguin and Clayface.
This is Rosario Dawson's fourth DC animated movie. She voiced for Wonder Woman (2009), Justice League: Throne of Atlantis (2015), and Justice League vs. Teen Titans (2016).
With the release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), this marks the first time in over twenty years that two theatrical Batman films have been released in two consecutive years. The last time this happened was with Batman Returns (1992) and Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993).
This incarnation of Robin bears a striking resemblance to Carrie Kelley's Robin from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns graphic novel.
Will Arnett and Michael Cera previously appeared together in Arrested Development (2003).
In the teaser trailer, Alfred Pennyworth refers to Batman going through "similar phases" in 2016, 2012, 2008, 2005, 1997, 1995, 1992, 1989, and a "weird one" in 1966. This is a clear reference to every year in which a major Batman film was released. The films in question are, respectively, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), The Dark Knight Rises (2012), The Dark Knight (2008), Batman Begins (2005), Batman & Robin (1997), Batman Forever (1995), Batman Returns (1992), Batman (1989), and Batman: The Movie (1966).
While most of the villains are based on their comic book appearances, some resemble their live action movie counterparts. The Penguin resembles Danny DeVito from Batman Returns (1992), Poison Ivy resembles Uma Thurman from Batman and Robin (1997), Catwoman resembles Halle Berry from Catwoman (2004) and Two Face resembles Billy Dee Williams from Batman (1989).

Spin-off of The Lego Movie (2014).
The trailers for the film feature different variants of the Bat Suit. One of these variants is labeled "2011 Comic-Con Exclusive". This suit is a mini-figure that was given out in raffles at New York Comic-Con and San Diego Comic-Con in 2011 to coincide with Lego re-launching the Superheroes theme. The mini-figure is based off of Christian Bale's suit from The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises. Another recognizable suit that's visible is Terry McGinnis's suit from the animated cartoon Batman Beyond.
