Will Arnett is returning to voice Batman, while Channing Tatum will return as Superman and Jonah Hill as Green Lantern.
It seems the crew is keeping details about the plot hush hush, which makes it even more intriguing.
Haddish takes over Hollywood

More projects, more projects
Tiffany Haddish clearly plans to live her best life in 2018 and her latest gig will allow her to flex a new set of acting muscles.
The Kitchen is a classic mob story that takes place in 1970s Hell’s Kitchen and follows a group of Irish mobsters who are sent to prison, prompting their wives to take over the organized crime operation and become more ruthless and vicious than their gangster husbands ever were.
Based on a 2014 comic book series, it will mark the directorial debut of Straight Outta Compton writer, Andrea Berloff, who is also penning the script.
