Lego Batman movie

UPDATE: THR’s Borys Kit has learned that Mariah Carey is not playing Commissioner Gordon, as previously reported, but rather the mayor of Gotham City. Original story follows.

Warner Bros.’ The Lego Batman Movie boasts some pretty inspired casting. Gravel-voiced Will Arnett proved in The Lego Movie that he was the perfect choice to play a comedic spin on mainstream comics’ most self-consciously “gritty” superhero, and we couldn’t think of a better pick to play his poor beleaguered sidekick Robin than Arnett’s Arrested Development nephew Michael Cera. Plus, any film that brings together Rosario Dawson, Zach Galifianakis, and Ralph Fiennes merits our attention.

But this latest bit of Lego Batman casting news goes beyond inspired to downright WTF. According to a new report, the role of Commissioner Gordon will be played by the Elusive Chanteuse herself, Mariah Carey. Yes, really. Read all about the Lego Batman Mariah Carey casting after the jump.  Read More »
