Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann isn't just taking his talents to the pitch. On Wednesday, the France international announced that he will voice the character of Superman in the French version of The Lego Batman Movie:

The 25-year-old has flourished on the European stage due to his extremely successful spell at the Vicente Calderon Stadium.

Since signing for the club in 2014, Griezmann has scored 71 goals in 117 appearances.

While he appeared in three matches for France during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, his international coming-out party wasn't until the 2016 European Championship, when he scored six goals in six matches.

He was one of the leaders of a team that made the Euro final, but the hosts fell short in a 1-0 loss to Portugal.

Griezmann won't be the only Les Bleus star who will be making an appearance in the Lego movie. Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Blaise Matuidi will be The Flash, per AS.
