He was one of the breakout stars from The Lego Movie, and now Will Arnett’s Batman is finally getting a chance to go solo. Want to see?

Warner Bros. has dropped the first trailer for The LEGO Batman Movie, which serves as a sequel/spinoff to 2014’s The LEGO Movie and puts the focus on LEGO Batman’s blocky world of Gotham City. The first trailer shows off the same look and style of The LEGO Movie, and Arnett’s Batman has certainly not lost any of his irreverent charm. From bragging about saving the city (“It was off the chain”) to geeking out over the lobster dinner Alfred saved for him, this looks like it could be just as fun as The LEGO Movie.

We don’t get much of the actual story in this trailer (do we do get a fleeting glimpse at the rest of the Justice League!), though it’s reportedly set to focus on The Joker’s hostile takeover of Gotham City. With the odds stacked against him, Batman is forced to team up and work with some other heroes (this is probably where that Justice League shot comes into play) to hopefully save the day.

The LEGO Batman Movie opens Feb. 10, 2017.

Oh, wait. I forgot to drop the mic.
