Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman!
When Batman and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shared the pages in their crossover comic series, we thought it couldn’t get batter. Now, announced via SYFY Wire, we can expect a new full length animated feature starring the heroes.
It looks to be set in the Batman universe, with the turtles teaming up t take down Batman’s rogues gallery. It doesn’t look to be set in any established show universe. The TMNT have original designs created for this film, and this version of Batman doesn’t appear to be based on any existing animated version. It does have the grey/blue color scheme. The designs remind me of a Mike Mignola character, but I doubt that’s who did the art.
And the voice cast has an incredible mix of live action performers and voice acting veterans.
The film’s voice cast features 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.
No release date has been announced, but look for it in late Spring coming to 4K, Blu-ray, and digital. Check out SYFY for more behind the scenes clips. What do you think? Will you be picking this up? Let us know in the comments!
