‘LEGO Batman’ Movie: Zach Galifianakis Is Going To Play The Joker!

This could not have gotten any better! Since the last few years, some of the best actors known to the cinema world have portrayed the role of the most iconic movie villains of all time. Joker, the evil Prince of Crime has undoubtedly ruled as one of the best villains of all time. Imagine what will happen if an actor with a spectacular comic timing was to play the Joker’s role? Read on for more.

According to Cinema Blend, it seems that the upcoming “LEGO Batman” movie has finally found its main antagonist and it is none other than the Joker himself. Jared Leto is playing the role in “Suicide Squad,” and basically the character has been played by many other actors in the past few years.

However, the version of Joker that will be appearing in the “LEGO Batman” movie will probably be the most hilarious one, as Zach Galifianakis has been confirmed to play the role of the Joker. The actor who is known for his impeccable comic timing is currently in the final rounds of negotiation, and will be joining the cast that has Will Arnett reprising his role as the Batman and Michael Cera who will be playing the role of Robin.

Back in “The LEGO Movie,” apart from Chris Pratt’s performance as Emmet, Will Arnett’s portrayal of Batman was hailed equally good. With this role Zach Galifianakis will further strengthen his resume as a voice actor since he has already lent his voice in “Puss in Boots” and his recurring role in “Bob’s Burgers” is amongst others. Zach will surely have tough boots to fill in since there have been quite a few portrayal of Joker in animated movies but given his strength as a comic actor, he will surely bring something unique to this role as well.

“The LEGO Batman Movie” is a spin off from “The LEGO Movie” and will primarily focus on Batman’s story. It is expected to be release in 2017, which will be a year earlier than “The LEGO Movie” sequel.
