Warning: spoilers for The LEGO Batman Movie are ahead!
The LEGO Batman Movie is more than just a movie starring Will Arnett's version of the Caped Crusader. It's also paying homage to decades of Batman stories, and part of that will involve featuring members of Batman's enemies beyond The Joker, the main antagonist. A lot of members of the hero's rogues gallery will show up, from A-listers like Two-Face and Catwoman to D-listers like Calendar Man and Condiment King. However, just like 2014's The LEGO Movie, the Batman spinoff will be bringing in elements not just from other corners of the DC universe, but from pop culture as well, specifically a few non-Batman villains who have formed their own evil group.
In the official The LEGO Batman Movie credits list, it's revealed that Eddie Izzard, Seth Green and Jemaine Clement are voicing (in the same order, respectively) Sauron from the Lord of the Rings franchise, King Kong and Voldemort from the Harry Potter series. Together they've formed The Ubers, whose only other member is some random character named Phyllis, voiced by Ellie Kemper. It's unclear whether these villains will be targeting Batman with the rest of the Bat-rogues or if Bruce Wayne will run into them if he ventures outside of Gotham City. Regardless, it's still hilarious that on top of everything else he has to deal with in this movie, Batman will also have to deal with bad guys not even
While the existence of The Ubers was the biggest surprise to come from The LEGO Batman Movie credits list, it wasn't the only goody in there. It was also revealed who will be voicing many of the film's villains. We already knew about Zack Galifianakis as The Joker, Jenny Slate as Harley Quinn and Billy Dee Williams as Two-Face, but they'll be joined by Conan O'Brien as The Ridder, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Jason Mantzoukas as The Scarecrow, Doug Benson as Bane, Kate Micucci as Clayface and Riki Lindhome as Poison Ivy.
Finally, serving as the proverbial proverbial cherry on top, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are listed as reprising Superman and Green Lantern, respectively, while Adam Devine is voicing The Flash. A few other highlights include Chris Hardwick voicing a reporter and Hector Elizondo voicing Commissioner James Gordon, the latter of which was revealed earlier this week. All these folks, along with the previously announced actors, just confirms even more that The LEGO Batman Movie going to have a stacked cast.
