Batman in The Lego Batman Movie

Will Arnett is hilarious as the gravel voiced Batman in the new trailer for The Lego Batman Movie. He comes home from a hard day of fighting crime to his cavernous Bat Cave and tells the computer to fire up the music, which is Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow." His computer asks him, "Did anything exciting happen today?" He replies, "I saved the city again...it was off the chain."

His loyal butler Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) left his lobstser thermidor in the fridge, which is his favorite. He puts the dish in the microwave and accidentally sets it to 20 minutes. Luckily, he realizes his mistake, and reset the timer to two minutes. As he bites into the lobster he announces, "I deserve this today...today I deserve it."

Arnett's Batman lives alone and and is all about his work. Well, his work and beatboxing which he demonstrates at the beginning of the trailer. We only get glimpses of the other superheroes that he becomes close to in the film: Dick Grayson/Robin (Michael Cera) and Barbara Gordon/Batgirl (Rosario Dawson). We do get a brief glimpse of Arrow and Wonder Woman, and we can't wait to see Lego Joker, played by (Zach Galifianakis). If the movie is even half as good as the trailer it will be a monster hit.
