Warner Bros. Animation has The LEGO Batman Movie coming next year, but the studio already has plans for yet another LEGO animated Batman venture. It’ll be a straight to video release that give fans a taste of the mini-Bat and friends before he hits the big screen next year. Check out the trailer for LEGO DC Comics Superheroes: Justice League: Gotham City Breakout below.
The film’s synopsis can be read below.
Fighting crime is a full-time job and Batman NEVER takes a vacation. That is until he finally agrees to let Batgirl and Nightwing take him on a long overdue trip – leaving Gotham City under the watchful eye of the Justice League in LEGO® DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Gotham City Breakout.
When Batgirl and Nightwing take Batman on a trip down memory lane – literally – to visit one of the key mentors from his formative years, it’s up to the Justice League to keep Gotham City crime-free. But neither situation proves to be a “vacation” as the Bat trio encounters old nemeses on their adventure, and the Justice League discovers just how busy Batman is on a regular basis. It’s a brick-tastic battle on two fronts as Batman, Batgirl and Nightwing take on Bane and Deathstroke, while the Justice League – with some help from a few Teen Titans – fends off an assault by many of Batman’s infamous adversaries to ensure Gotham City’s safety.
There has yet to be a release date announced; however, WB is ready to talk who’s running the project behind the scenes. The movie’s executive producer is Sam Register with a script by Jim Krieg; these two are known for other DC properties such as Young Justice, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and much more. Notable voice actors Troy Baker, Nolan North, Khary Payton, and Sarah Hyland will be lending their pipes to the film, though who they are cast as has yet to be revealed. However, based on the trailer, it sounds as if Troy is returning as Batman and Nolan is taking on Superman again; the two could be voicing a number of any of characters, as well.
