Chris O'Donnell's been feeling lonely, but finally, after all this time, he will be joined in the Robin club by none other than Michael Cera.

Sure, it's for the “Batman Lego” movie, but still.

Chris McKay, who was the animation supervisor of “The Lego Movie,” is directing this one, from a script by Seth Grahame-Smith, and I would suspect this is one of the Lego movies worth keeping an eye on. Warner obviously has plans to turn the overall property into a massive ongoing property, and one of the things that was most fun about “The Lego Movie” was the way they properly punctured the inherent silliness of Batman.

Don't get me wrong. I love Batman. But, man, did Arnett find the big goofy heart of that character, and Michael Cera as Robin sounds like the exact right energy to bounce off of him. Beside, anything that gets any combination of the Bluths back together is okay by me.

“The Lego Batman Movie” (or whatever they officially call it) is due in theaters February 10, 2017.
