Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might not seem like the most obvious of comic book team-ups, but they do have their similarities. Both fight crime at night in a big city, are known to inflict considerable pain on their enemies, and have animal-based superhero names (of course, the Turtles ARE actually turtles). Fans can now enjoy their first onscreen team-up in the new animated movie Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
As reported by Syfy.com, the film is a collaboration between DC Entertainment and Nickelodeon. It’s based on the 2015 Batman/Turtles crossover comic by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II, and will see the heroes meet up via a “transdimensional encounter,” and end up fighting various villains from Batman’s rogues gallery.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles releases on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital in late spring. The voicecast includes Troy Baker (The Last of Us), who will play both Batman and the Joker, Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie) as Donatello, and Eric Bauza (The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo. A first image from the movie has been released–check it out below.
The cast also includes Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom as Batgirl, DC animation veteran Tara Strong as both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) as The Penguin, and John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) as Mr. Freeze.
