It was only matter of time, but this is still mostly good news.  After the phenomenal success of The LEGO Movie (and a delay in production on The LEGO Movie 2) Warner Bros. is fast-tracking a spinoff in the form of a LEGO Batman movie.  Will Arnett, whose character was a highlight of the amazing first film, will return to voice the hilarious character.  Chris McKay, who acted as animation supervisor on the first film and was attached to direct the sequel, will how helm this picture.

LEGO Batman will be written by Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe Seth Grahame-Smith and is targeting a 2017 release date. 

THR broke the news of the spinoff.  LEGO Batman will still open after Ninjago hits on September 23rd, 2016.    Roy Lee, Dan Lin, and original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are all on board to produce.
