The First Look at LEGO Movie Robin is Not Encouraging

Your favorite sidekick and mine will debut and star in the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie next February. Seeing as how I’m a huge Robin fan, I’m very excited. But knowing how Robin is typically treated in pop culture, I’m also very worried. These first pictures, revealed by USA Today, have me more worried than excited.

What’s with the eyes?

Sparkly cape? Big googly eyes? Probably pixie boots? Eh.

And the cape?

Robin will be voiced by Michael Cera, which is fine, I suppose. According to director Chris McKay, Robin starts out as an annoyance to Batman’s lone vigilante style. Batman accidentally adopts him during a charity auction. He describes the character thusly:

“Robin is a super-positive kid who always sees the glass as half full. Really, at the end of the day, he just wants a hug. Michael brings the sweetness and honesty.”

So I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. There should be a new trailer debuting at some point during Comic-Con!
