The LEGO DC Superhero film series have constantly been fun and family friendly and looks like the latest entry is no different. Announced by Syfy, it’s a family affair in LEGO®DC Batman – Family Matters when the Bat Family has to unite and stage a heist of Wayne Enterprises after Two-Face takes control of the Wayne family company.
Sadly, don’t expect Steve Urkel to show up.
Featuring an all-star cast including Tara Strong who after playing Batgirl for nearly 2 decades voices is now Kate Kane better known as Batwoman. Check out the trailer below—
After Batman (voiced by Troy Baker) sells his company, Wayne Enterprises, to focus on vigilantism, he realizes his mistake when Two-Face (Christian Lanz) takes control and plans to tear Gotham apart with the help of Brother Eye (Cam Clarke), a murderous AI not too dissimilar to HAL 9000.
With some help from Robin (Scott Menville) and Batgirl (Alyson Stoner), the Caped Crusader will break into the company building, shut down Brother Eye, and convince Harvey Dent that Batman and Bruce Wayne are two separate individuals. The story also involves these heroes receiving mysterious invitations and having their bonds tested when the Red Hood (Jason Spisak) shows up, determined to destroy both them and Gotham.
The rest of the voice cast is comprised of: Steve Blum (Scarecrow), Zach Callison (Billy Batson), Will Friedle (Nightwing), Ralph Garman (Wizard), Jake Green, (Fred), Josh Keaton (Board Member) Tom Kenny (Gordon & Penguin), Nolan North (Killer Croc), Andre Sogliuzza (Riddler), Tara Strong (Batwoman), and Fred Tatasciore (Solomon Grundy).
Directed by Matt Peters (LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Aquaman – Rage of Atlantis) LEGO DC: Batman – Family Matters arrives on digital and Blu-Ray soon. Jeremy Adams (LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: The Flash) penned the screenplay.
