Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Rosario Dawson Will Voice Batgirl

THR is reporting Rosario Dawson will be a member of the Bat-family in Lego Batman, Warner Bros.' spinoff of The Lego Movie.

Will Arnett is reprising the Caped Crusader role he originated in Lego Movie. Michael Cera is voicing the hero’s sidekick, Robin, while Zach Galifianakis is in negotiations to play the Joker.

Dawson will voice Barbara Gordon, the daughter of police commissioner James Gordon who later becomes the crime-fighting heroine Batgirl.

Chris McKay, the animation supervisor on Lego Movie, is directing the project, which has a script written by author-screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith.

Dan Lin, Roy Lee, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the custodians of the Lego screen brand, are producing.

Dawson is a huge comic book fan (she even co-created her own comic, O.C.T.: Occult Crimes Taskforce) who recently wrapped shooting a co-starring role on season two of Netflix and Marvel’s Daredevil, playing the Night Nurse, a character she will also play in Netflix and Marvel’s Luke Cage.

The actress is no stranger to voice work, having loaned her pipes to Wonder Woman in DC’s Justice League: Throne of Atlantis and Artemis in Wonder Woman.
