Warner Bros. Home Video and Nickelodeon have previously announced the upcoming Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated movie. Even though we’ve had some really great comic book miniseries dealing with this, it didn’t seem possible we’d actually see an adaptation of the premise. The movie is getting closer to becoming a reality as the release date and trailer have been announced.
If you’re curious just how amazing this could be, check out the trailer.
The movie will be released on Digital May 14, and on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray combo pack on June 4.
The Dark Knight and the Heroes in a Half-shell will have to team up in Gotham City when Shredder and Ra’s al Ghul join forces. As great as Batman is at fighting the bad guys, going up against the League of Assassins and the Foot Clan might be a bit much, even for him. Throw in the Joker and things get even messier.
The cast includes Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham Origins, The Last of Us) as the voice of both Batman and the Joker. This is the first time an actor has played both roles in the same film. The Ninja Turtles features Emmy Award/Golden Globe Award/SAG Award winner Darren Criss (American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, Glee) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie) as Donatello, and Eric Bauza (Looney Tunes Cartoons, The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo.
But that’s not all. Other key cast members include Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Batgirl, John DiMaggio (Adventure Time, Futurama) as Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (Batman: The Animated Series, Teen Titans, Teen Titans Go!) as Harley Quinn & Poison Ivy, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Penguin, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) as Bane, Cas Anvar (The Expanse) as Ra’s al Ghul, Keith Ferguson (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) as Baxter Stockman & Two-Face, Brian George (Seinfeld) as Alfred, Ben Giroux (Hart of Dixie) as Robin, Andrew Kishino (The Lion Guard) as Shredder, and Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) as Commissioner Gordon & Scarecrow.
Special features include:
- Cowabunga, Batman! When Comic Worlds Collide (Featurette)
- Fight Night in Gotham (Featurette)
- A Sneak Peek at the next DC Universe Movie, Batman: Hush
