Michael Cera Is Robin In LEGO “Batman” Film

The news of the casting of “Scott Pilgrim” star Michael Cera as Robin the Boy Wonder would probably get fanboys up in arms. Well it has just happened, but it’s in a context that makes sense and probably won’t draw any anger.

Cera will lend his voice to the character in the upcoming “Batman”-themed spin-off of “The LEGO Movie” at Warner Bros. Pictures. Cera will reunite with his “Arrested Development” co-star Will Arnett who returns as the voice of the Dark Knight and return as Batman’s partner-in-crimefighting.

Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are producing while Chris McKay is directing from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith.

Cera has also acquired the film rights to Charles Portis’ novel “Masters of Atlantis” with plans to act in and potentially direct the project about a young man who becomes entangled in a quasi-religious cult which focuses on the lost city of Atlantis.
