LOS ANGELES, March 28 (UPI) -- Warner Bros. Pictures has released a second Lego Batman Movie trailer this time featuring its titular character reminiscing on his past films.

The new clip starts with the titular hero voiced by Will Arnett explaining to the audience how the first trailer broke the internet.

"Hello again uber nerd fans," Lego Batman says in Arnett's comedic take on the Dark Knight's signature growl. "I heard you blew up the Twitter-sphere about my sweet new feature film The Lego Batman Movie. You know its kinda like the original Lego Movie only vastly superior because it revolves entirely around me."

"So when you're as super as me, you don't get just one trailer, you get two trailers, in one week," he continues smiling at the camera.

The trailer then takes us to Wayne Manor where Lego Batman continues to be sad about the death of his parents. Trusty butler Alfred, voiced by Ralph Fiennes, explains he's been grieving like this for years referencing Batman's film past from the recently released Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice all the way from Adam West's turn as the caped crusader in the hit 1960's television show.

Directed by Chris McKay and also starring Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Michael Cera as Robin, Zach Galifianakis as The Joker, and Mariah Carey as the mayor of Gotham, The Lego Batman Movie opens in theaters February 10, 2017.
