'LEGO Batman Movie' Update: Billy Dee Williams set to play 'Two Face'
2014's LEGO Movie has been a surefire commercial success. The 2014 film was able to captivate the heart and laughter of its viewers that they are itching for another one of those lego movies.
Now, the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie is in the works. A recent update was released indicating who's going to voice Harvey Dent, more known as "Two-Face."
According to The Verge, 1989's Batman Billy Dee Williams has been tapped to do the voice of Two-Face in the LEGO Batman Movie. Director Chris McKay announced the news through Twitter, upon replying to a certain fan asking if Billy Dee Williams has been confirmed.
In response - and much to the intrigue of LEGO fans, McKay responded: "He does." This news is certainly a big deal for those who loved Tim Burton's version of Batman.
It is known that in Burton's Batman films, Williams was given the role of District Attorney Harvey Dent. However, he only has one-picture deal with the then-studios but still hoped that he's going to play the villain.
But upon Joel Schumacher's take over, Williams was replaced by Tommy Lee Jones. Such a decision was widely deeped as a disappointment.
Even Gizmodo believes that Williams should have continued playing as Harvey Dent in the following Batman movie, which was known to have flunked out. Now, he got the one he had hoped for, but with a different nature to the role.
With this, it is safe to say that Lego Batman Movie is eyeing to become the top DC film to be shown in 2017, with a list of other competitors in line.
The Lego Batman Movie is slated to hit the big screens next year in February 10, 2017.
