There's a BATMAN VS. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Movie in The Works and Here's Our First Look
When I was growing up I used to draw all the time and I loved crossing over some of my favorite characters. One crossover that I always drew a lot of was Batman teaming up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. In 2015 the Dark Knight collided with the Ninja Turtles for the first time in comic book form, and now we are actually getting an animated film!
DC Entertainment and Nickelodeon are teaming up to bring up Batman Vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and it will be based on the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics miniseries by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II. I’ve included two images from the film above and below.
The news comes from Syfy Wire, who reports that the story “will see the turtles meeting Batman via a transdimensional encounter, and feature our heroes teaming up to face Batman's deadly rogues gallery.”
The report also reveals the impressive voice cast, which includes “Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Batman: Arkham Origins) as both Batman and The Joker (making him the first actor to ever take on both roles in one project), Darren Criss (the Emmy winning star of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie) as Donatello, Eric Bauza (The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo, Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Batgirl, Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) as The Penguin, John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) as Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (The Powerpuff Girls) as both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) as Bane, and Cas Anvar (The Expanse) as Ra's al Ghul.
This is gonna be a fun movie! Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will arrive on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital late this spring.
What do you think of this latest crossover animated film project? I love that animated projects allow for these kinds of crazy crossovers to happen!
