Chris McKay, director of the 2017 animated feature The LEGO Batman Movie, has taken to Twitter to reveal that development is underway on a sequel to The LEGO Movie spinoff.
The LEGO Batman Movie grossed $312 million globally upon its release in 2017, so it shouldn’t really come as much of a surprise that Warner Bros. is working on a sequel. And, as McKay states, Will Arnett’s Caped Crusader will be returning to screens this February in The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.
What this does raise however is further questions about the status of McKay’s planned live-action Nightwing movie. The director has recently signed on to direct a live-action Jonny Quest movie for Warner Bros. and also has Dungeons & Dragons on his slate for Paramount Pictures. Throw The LEGO Batman Movie 2 into the mix, and it’s really starting to seem unlikely that the Nightwing film will ever see the light of day.
