Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer Debuts

Animal-themed ninja superheroes are about to unite as Warner Bros. Animation has released the trailer for Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles exclusively to Entertainment Weekly. Based on the comic book miniseries Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the new animated feature finds the Heroes in a Half Shell in Gotham City tracking Shredder and the Foot Clan, who’ve joined forces with Ra’s al Ghul and the League of Assassins to do bad guy stuff, with a whole host of Batman’s legendary villains waiting in the wings.  Naturally, Batman gets involved, and along with Robin and Batgirl. How close any of this is to the comic (which I didn’t read), I have no idea, but it looks like a lot of fun. Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will premiere at WonderCon Anaheim on March 31, 2019, with a home video release in late spring. Check out the Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer below…

When I watched the Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer, my first thought was, “If Batman doesn’t fight Shredder sooner or later, this is pointless.” Sure enough, the trailer assures us that will happen. I’m impressed with the go-for-broke mentality with which they seem to have approached the story; the main conflict seems to be against Shredder and Ra’s al Ghul, which is the most logical villain pairing, but why not throw in Bane, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, and plenty more of Batman’s rogues gallery? And, of course, the Joker is involved somehow. I like that the Turtles are keeping their brand of humor from the animated series of the 80s and 90s (which, when I was a kid, was so my jam) to contrast with the taciturn Dark Knight. It’s always a bummer when Kevin Conroy doesn’t voice Batman, but Troy Baker seems to mimic him pretty well, as he did Mark Hamill’s Joker in Arkham Origins – and, presumably, will again here. Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looks like it could be another winner for DC’s animated film library.
