LEGO Batman may have a mansion, plenty of wonderful toys, and a loyal butter, but he has zero friends. The caped crusader keeps busy saving Gotham and doesn’t have the best social skills, so he’s a bit of a loner in desperate need of a pal. The LEGO Batman Movie — which director Chris McKay describes as a cross between Michael Mann and About a Boy — follows Batman on his quest for happiness.
Below, watch The Lego Batman Movie TV spots.

Don’t tell anyone, but my most highly anticipated Batman movie isn’t Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or even Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie. It’s The Lego Batman Movie, featuring Will Arnett as the grizzled and raspy voice of the Caped Crusader. I mean, who can who can resist a description like “About a Boy as directed by Michael Mann,” as director Chris McKay recently put it?
We first met the Arnett’s version of the character in 2014’s The Lego Movie, but the spinoff promises an even more up-close-and-personal look at the solitary vigilante.

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.

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.

Could the Plastics be headed to Broadway? If Tina Fey has her way, quite possibly.
