Michael Cera will voice Robin in Lego Batman movie

Michael Cera is in line to feature in the upcoming Lego Batman movie, voicing the boy wonder himself, Robin.

The Lego Batman movie is a spin-off of The Lego Movie. Will Arnett will reprise his role as the Dark Knight, making it an Arrested Development reunion of sorts – Arnett played Cera’s uncle in the show.

Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will produce the upcoming spin-off. Chris McKay, who acted as the animation supervisor on The Lego Movie, will direct. Seth Grahame-Smith, who previously wrote Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, penned the script for the Lego Batman movie.

Lego Batman is expected to arrive in cinemas sometime in 2017.
