The LEGO Batman Movie TV Spots - Batgirl

We’re less than a month until we get a new movie featuring the Dark Knight in theaters. However, this take on Batman will be far more lighthearted than the one we saw in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The LEGO Batman Movie has Will Arnett voicing the building block version of the Caped Crusader, reprising the role he masterfully played in The LEGO Movie a few years ago. It’s one of my most anticipated movies of 2017, and a couple new TV spots show off some new footage from the comedic take on Batman, complete with a showcase of how badass Barbara Gordon, aka Batgirl, is going to be in this movie.
