A Cinematic Robin has Been Confirmed!
Just not the one we’re hoping for.
Michael Cera has been cast as LEGO Robin in the upcoming LEGO Batman spin-off film. I’m fine with Michael Cera, and considering the tone they’re probably going for with a LEGO Batman movie, he’s probably the perfect bit of casting. I just hope they apply some legitimate cleverness to his character and dialogue instead of doing some wimpy Michael Cera riff.
The LEGO Batman movie will come out in February 2017. I loved The LEGO Movie as much as the next guy (perhaps even more so), but I’m not at all optimistic about the plethora of spin-offs and other attempts to cash in on the success. And does anybody else find it weird that the two guys behind The LEGO Movie, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, are being announced for EVERY movie coming out in the near future? It’s insane!
Still, at least we’ll get one Robin in an upcoming movie…
