As much as we adored The Lego Movie, do we really need a spinoff film about Batman?

The answer is yes.

We absolutely need this. Especially now when we consider Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and just how silly comic-book franchises are getting, we need something like Lego Batman to take everyone down a peg or two.

This first teaser, which admittedly doesn't give much away in terms of plot, does point to the unique brand of irreverent, off-kilter comedy that Will Arnett's made his career on. In a way, his Batman is almost like GOB Bluth as Batman - which is amazing, when you think about it.  You've also got Chris McKay behind the camera as director, who worked on the fantastic Adult Swim series, Robot Chicken.

Right, that's enough filler. On with the trailer.
