Rule of thumb for all the young billionaire/crime fighters out there: Don't sell the company that your father built from the ground up. That's exactly what happens in the first exclusive trailer for LEGO DC: Batman – Family Matters, an upcoming family-friendly movie from Warner Bros. Animation.
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.
Watch the first trailer now:
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.
