Batman is a crime-fighting superhero and beloved figure in the new trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie. But he longs for deeper satisfaction through human connection. "Your greatest fear is being a part of a family again," Alfred (Ralph Fiennes) tells the Caped Crusader (the gravelly-voiced Will Arnett). "Sir, you need to take responsibility for your life."
The clip opens with a lonely Bruce Wayne lounging around a tricked-out Batcave, humorously struggling to adjust the Input settings for his massive theatre screen. When Alfred reminds him about Robin (Michael Cera), "the young orphan [he] adopted," the Dark Knight winds up battling bigger annoyances – like how to get his newfound sidekick to stop annoying him.
The duo eventually learn to work together, recruiting Batgirl/Police Commissioner Barbara Gordon (Rosario Dawson) to battle the evil Joker (Zach Galifianakis). The dizzying trailer also features an eclectic soundtrack, including Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" and a synth-plastered remix of Jefferson Starship's "We Built This City." The DC Entertainment/Warner Bros film, which hits Australian theatres on March 30th, 2017, also features the voice talent of Mariah Carey (as the Mayor of Gotham City) and Jenny Slate (as Harley Quinn).
