Zach Galifianakis Is The Joker In Lego Batman


The Lego Batman movie is really going for an all-star comedy cast. We have Will Arnett as Batman, Michael Cera as Robin, and now Zach Galifianakis has been cast as the Joker for the upcoming animated feature.

While Zach Galifianakis is incredibly funny, I wonder if he’s a good choice to play Joker. Obviously The Lego Batman Movie will be a family-friendly film, there are still some basic elements every Joker should have. And Joker has been portrayed in a family-friendly way multiple without losing any of that. I think as long as Zach Galifianakis is game for the role and tries to do a character rather than just play himself, it will come off well in the film. I think I also would’ve preferred one of Batman’s sillier villains though, the Joker is too easy. I mean, I think the big screen debut of The King of Cats is long overdue. The Lego Batman movie is due out February 10th, 2017.
