The film is being directed by Chris McKay, with Christopher Miller and Phil Lord on producing duties (having introduced this particular take on Batman in The LEGO Movie).

Several new images from the film have been released courtesy of USA Today and feature Will Arnett's Batman, Zach Galifianakis' Joker, Michael Cera's Robin, and, if you look closely enough, Harley Quinn behind the wheel of the Joker's vehicle.

While Ben Affleck's solo Batman film is at least two years away from its cinematic release, the wait for the return of his LEGO counterpart in The LEGO Batman Movie is thankfully much shorter.

Director Chris McKay's description of the villain also happens to offer some choice plot details; as he explained, "The Joker sees himself on the same level as Batman, a peer, at the top of the game".

First up is a LEGO Batmobile set, which consists of 581 pieces, and includes minifigures for Batman, Robin, Man-Bat and the Kabuki Twins.

In the film there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if Batman wants to save the city from The Joker's hostile takeover, he may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Warner Bros. hasn't announced who will be voicing Harley Quinn quite yet, but perhaps the full voice cast will be unveiled during the Comic-Con presentation.

Robin/Dick Grayson turns out to be a child adopted by Batman's alter ego, billionaire Bruce Wayne, at a charity auction. The initially unwanted helpers don't even stop with Robin, as Batgirl also comes in at one point with the voice of Rosario Dawson, although she isn't pictured yet. Really, at the end of the day, he just wants a hug. "Batman's Rogues Gallery is going to be completely filled out in Lego". "Michael brings the sweetness and honesty".
