LEGO Batman casts its LEGO Batgirl
If casting for LEGO Batman continues the way it’s been going, the LEGO Movie spin-off might become the most anticipated Caped Crusader movie. (Sorry, Dawn of Justice.)
The latest casting news is that Rosario Dawson, a centerpiece of Marvel’s Daredevil series in Netflix, will provide the voice for Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Commissioner Gordon and eventual secret identity of Batgirl. The news, which EW has confirmed, was originally reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
Dawson joins a star-studded cast that includes Will Arnett, reprising his role from The LEGO Movie, Zach Galifianakis as the Joker and Michael Cera as Robin the Boy Wonder.
Though the directors of The LEGO Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, will only be back as producers, Chris McKay, who served as animation supervisor on the original film, will helm the script by the future writer and director of the Flash live-action movie Seth Grahame-Smith.
The film is currently slated to hit theaters on February 10, 2017.
