To celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman, Warner Bros. Animation, Nickelodeon, and DC have teamed up to bring us Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Entertainment Weekly had the exclusive first trailer, which you will find below the details on this animated crossover event! #AFJ4LIFE
From EW: "The feature-length film, from director Jake Castorena and screenwriter Marly Halpern-Graser, sees the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tracking Shredder to Gotham City, where the villain teams up with Ra’s al Ghul and other members of the Dark Knight’s rogues’ gallery to enact a mysterious plot. Just like another “V” movie between two superheroes, these sets of good guys may throw a few punches at each other before realizing there’s a far more real enemy lurking in the shadows.
In the comics, the worlds of Batman and the TMNT collide through a dimensional warp. For this film, it was through a massive collaboration between Warner Bros. Animation, Nickelodeon, and DC.
With Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Troy Baker, a voice actor from video games Batman: Arkham Origins and The Last of Us, becomes the first to ever play both Batman and the Joker in the same film. Team Bats is rounded out by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Rachel Bloom as Batgirl, Hart of Dixie‘s Ben Giroux as Robin, Seinfeld‘s Brian George as Alfred, and Parks and Recreation‘s Jim Meskimen as Commissioner Gordon.
Ben Jones of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman: The Brave and the Bold is also on board as a producer, while Benjamin Melniker, Michael Uslan, Sam Register, and Chris Viscardi serve as executive producers.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be released through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack this spring.
