Given no news of a possible sequel that has arisen in recent years, Chris McKay had previously teased that the LEGO franchise had more worlds to explore with subsequent movies.
The LEGO Batman Movie!
In February 2017, the LEGO Batman Movie premiered as a spinoff from The LEGO franchise. The voice cast, directed by Chris McKay, featured Michael Cera, Will Arnett, Ralph Fiennes, Rosario Dawson, and Zack Galifianakis, among others. Director Chris McKay took to Twitter about a year after the film’s release to announce he was working on a sequel.
Micheal Cera’s Take on LEGO
Robin voice actor Michael Cera told in an interview that he enjoyed working on The LEGO franchise Batman flick and would leap at the chance to do another one. He said that he would be so interested in it. This is what he had to say. “I haven’t heard of it, but I’d love it. It’s been such a fun experience working on it, and I’m such a fan of those LEGO movies generally. I was so excited to be in it because I liked the first LEGO movie, and I’d run at it, but I’ve not heard much. Who knows, now that this is going to be an animated film, so maybe it’s actually happening.”
Success of the Past LEGO Flicks!
The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part premiered in February 2019, and Batman was heavily featured in that. Sadly, the animated film at the box office-and Warner-Bros did not do too well. CEO Kebin Tsujihara noticed that and found it confusing. Perhaps the interest of the actor in returning might revive the film, which appears to be dead in the water. The first installment, as a matter of fact, was quite positive. The LEGO franchise Batman Movie has raised $312 million worldwide and has a Tomato-meter rating of 90 percent.
