Batman and Superman Set to Appear in LEGO Movie
June 26, 2012
It looks like Batman and Superman will finally be sharing the big screen together. The two heroes are slated to appear in the upcoming Warner Bros. film LEGO: The Piece of Resistance
, according to Variety
Though not officially signed on, the filmmakers are circling Channing Tatum for Superman and Will Arnett for Batman. No word on how big of a role the characters will have in the film, but with two high profile actors taking on the roles we're guessing they'll be in it a lot. Chris Pratt ("Parks and Recreation") is set to voice the lead character in the film.
The project has been in development at Warner Bros. for over three years when the studio began working with the LEGO Company on developing a family comedy written by Dan and Kevin Hageman, and then brought on Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
) to write and direct in 2010. They recently brought "Robot Chicken" stop-motion director Chris McKay on as a co-director for LEGO under Lord and Miller.LEGO: The Piece of Resistance
is schedule to hit theaters on February 28, 2014.
