Singer Mariah will voice mayor in new movie
There was slight confusion for LEGO Batman fans today.
Deadline reported that Grammy award winner Mariah Carey will be playing the role of Commissioner Gordon in the upcoming LEGO Batman Movie.
This was a surprising announcement, so perhaps Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit’s tweet that Carey will actually be voicing the character of Gotham’s mayor makes more sense.
She will join actors such as Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Ralph Fiennes and Zach Galifianakis in the new film.
Although best known for her music career, Mariah Carey has previously featured in episodes of ‘The Proud Family’ and ‘American Dad!’. This will be the first time she has lent her voice to a feature film.
The LEGO Batman Movie will be released on the 10 February 2017.
