BURBANK, CA (March 14, 2019) – It’ll take the unlikely unification of the Dark Knight and the Heroes in a Half-shell to overcome combined villainous forces afoot in Gotham City in the all-new, feature-length animated thriller, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Nickelodeon and DC, the film arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital starting May 14, 2019, and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack on June 4, 2019.

Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be available on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack ($39.99 SRP) and Blu-ray Combo Pack ($24.98 SRP), as well as on Digital ($19.99 HD, $14.99 SD). The 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack features an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in 4K with HDR and a Blu-ray disc featuring the film; the Blu-ray Combo Pack features the film in hi-definition. The 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a digital version of the film.

The Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all-star cast is led by Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham Origins, The Last of Us) as the voice of both Batman and the Joker – making Baker the first actor to ever play both roles in the same film. Opposite Baker are the Ninja Turtles themselves – 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.

Jake Castorena (The Death of Superman) directs Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from a script by Marly Halpern-Graser (Mad, Batman Unlimited, Be Cool, Scooby-Doo). The film is inspired by the comic book series “Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II (published by DC Comics and IDW Publishing) and is based on characters from DC and Nickelodeon.

  1. Breaking on SyFy

    This spring, Warner Bros. Animation is teaming up with DC Entertainment and Nickelodeon for Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, an all-new animated movie that unites everyone’s favorite turtles with the Caped Crusader for the first time outside of the comics page. Based on the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics miniseries by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II, the film will see the turtles meeting Batman via a transdimensional encounter, and feature our heroes teaming up to face Batman’s deadly rogues gallery.

  2. This is a pretty nice surprise. The art released so far looks cool and I look forward to seeing more. I haven’t read any of the cross-over comics with the Turtles, but have enjoyed the various TMNT franchises throughout the years, for the most part. And this looks like it will be fun.

    It’s also cool seeing Batgirl in a more prominent role. I’m not too familiar with all of the voice actors announced so far (especially the ones for the Turtles, outside of Bauza), but I presume they are good choices for their roles, and the ones I do know of sound pretty great. I also find it kind of funny Robin is included in that first look photo, yet no voice actor for him is listed yet.

    All in all, this looks like fun and I will check it out once it’s released.

  3. Funnily enough, I was discussing a few days ago with ShadowStar about the amount of projects with the ” vs ” on their title, and how unoriginal it felt for titles. And here’s another one! From the top of my head…

    Batman v Superman, Batman vs Robin, Batman vs Two-Face, Justice League vs Teen Titans, Justice Leave vs The Fatal Five, Teen Titans vs Teen Titans Go… you get the idea.

    That aside, this is interesting. Not particulary stoked, I think this will be along the vein of ”Trapped In Time” but I will definitely check it out when its released

  4. It’s happening! Syfy has the exclusive details and a first look image of the upcoming animated movie.

    Wow. I know there was a poll for people who had watched Return of the Caped Crusaders asking if they would watch a Batman and TMNT movie, but I never really thought it would happen. Awesome :D!

    I’m kind of surprised they’re not bringing in a specific Turtles iteration to team-up with Batman, but I guess they’re not using an established version of Batman either :confused:.

    That being said, from what I’ve heard of the Turtles VA’s, they all sound like they’ll fit their respective Turtle well :anime:.

    I knew it was inevitable that Troy Baker would eventually voice both Batman and Joker in an individual project. And hey, Batman has his trunks back ;).

    It’s nice to see Batgirl in an animated movie again, and they’re even using the Burnside costume (not my favorite, but it looks fine here). I think Rachel Bloom will do a good job in the role :).

    John DiMaggio as Mr. Freeze should be interesting :cool:.

    I liked Carlos Alazraqui as Bane in Justice League: Doom so cool to have him back :evil:.

    I don’t think Ra’s was involved with any of the comic stories, so it should be interesting to see how they work him in here :ack:.

    The art style looks nice. Reminds me of the art for the B:TAS/TMNT comic :robin:.

    I wonder if Roger Craig Smith was too busy or if Troy pulling double duty was a budgetary thing?

    Tara Strong is also playing both Harley and Poison Ivy again in an animated movie for, like, the third time (not counting DC Super Hero Girls), so either it’s a budgetary thing or just more convenient :sweat:.

    Okay, I’m all hyped for this but if I may ask… Why does it gotta be titled VS?

    Probably because "vs" has become a shorthand for team-up movies…and we will probably see Batman and the Turtles tussle at least once during the movie :rolleyes2:.

  5. YES!!! It’s really happening! I’m crazy excited for this! I was so hyped when the comic was announced and now I’m even more hyped that it’s getting animated. This is the second 2D animated Turtles movie after Turtles Forever a decade ago (that’s so crazy to say).

    It’s cool that Troy Baker will be voicing both Batman and Joker. Also, Batgirl wasn’t in the first comic crossover so I’m glad they added her. If they make a few changes, I’m totally cool with that.

    I kind of expected to see the Turtles voiced by past voice actors. The 4Kids cast seemed to fit the tone of the book the most but I’m cool with this cast. I hope to see a few more Turtle characters like Splinter, April, and Casey.

    It’s really cool that Viacom and WB agreed to make this happen. As if four DC Universe Animated Original Movies (including the first Wonder Woman animated movie in a decade) wasn’t hype enough. I love when DC has these awesome animated projects that come out of nowhere like Batman Ninja!

    Plus seeing the Turtles in Injustice 2 felt like a precursor to this announcement. What a fantastic way to celebrate Batman’s 80th anniversary and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ 35th anniversary!

    I don’t think Ra’s was involved with any of the comic stories, so it should be interesting to see how they work him in here :ack:.

    Shredder teams up with Ra’s and the League in the first crossover story.

  6. I’ve never read any of the cross-overs with TMNT, so I’m not aware of the tone they usually are.

    While this is definitely cool, I have to admit that I’m disappointed that it looks like they went with a comedic direction for this movie, when I would’ve preferred something a little more serious. Really not digging the design for Batman neither.

  7. John DiMaggio as Mr. Freeze should be interesting :cool:.

    He voiced Mr. Freeze on Batman The Brave And The Bold. This is just the first time in a decade he’s voicing him with more substantial materiel.

    I kind of expected to see the Turtles voiced by past voice actors.

    I mentioned above that Eric Bauza and Darren Criss are reprising their roles as Leo and Raph from Turtles Take Time And Space .

  8. I mentioned above that Eric Bauza and Darren Criss are reprising their roles as Leo and Raph from Turtles Take Time And Space .

    I meant one of the four animated series, but you’re right, there are a couple voice reprisals. This should be Eric Bauza and Darren Criss’ biggest role playing Leo and Raph compared to the shorts. Of course, Eric Bauza has a continually expanding history with TMNT now that’s he’s played Tiger Claw and Splinter among other characters.

  9. Some more random comments-

    This almost feels like a continuation of the Batman Unlimited line (which only makes Roger Craig Smith’s absence more noticeable…) I think there was a mobile game or something set in that continuity where Batgirl appeared, with that same design (well, the costume anyway). It’s not much to go by, just a thought.

    I would expect some of the TMNT supporting characters or at least enemies will show up. Having only Batman rogues is cool and all, but in cross-overs like these I think both sides should be represented.

    Still, this is very, very cool. Last year we had Batman & Scooby-Doo, now we’re getting this. Hopefully they will keep this up for a while longer, leading to some more surprising titles.

  10. YES!!! It’s really happening! I’m crazy excited for this! I was so hyped when the comic was announced and now I’m even more hyped that it’s getting animated. This is the second 2D animated Turtles movie after Turtles Forever a decade ago (that’s so crazy to say).

    Wow, it’s been that long :eek:?

    It’s cool that Troy Baker will be voicing both Batman and Joker. Also, Batgirl wasn’t in the first comic crossover so I’m glad they added her. If they make a few changes, I’m totally cool with that.

    I think we’re going to get a mix of the two major Batman/TMNT crossovers, the comic version with the New 52 and IDW Turtles and the cartoon version with B:TAS and the 2K12 Turtles. Damian Robin was in the former while Batgirl was in the latter ;).

    I kind of expected to see the Turtles voiced by past voice actors. The 4Kids cast seemed to fit the tone of the book the most but I’m cool with this cast. I hope to see a few more Turtle characters like Splinter, April, and Casey.

    I was kind of expecting them to bring back the 2K12 VA’s since they’re still relatively recent and would fit the style of this project :ack:.

    I am kind of glad they’re going with more standard takes on the Turtles instead of using the Rise versions :).

    Shredder teams up with Ra’s and the League in the first crossover story.

    Wow, I forgot all about that. Makes me wonder if we’ll see Shredder at all, and I agree that I hope Splinter, Casey, and April show up as well :cool:.

    This almost feels like a continuation of the Batman Unlimited line (which only makes Roger Craig Smith’s absence more noticeable…) I think there was a mobile game or something set in that continuity where Batgirl appeared, with that same design (well, the costume anyway). It’s not much to go by, just a thought.

    Yeah, and Batman’s got the blue and grey suit with a yellow Bat-Symbol, same as Batman Unlimited. I’m starting to wonder if Roger Craig Smith was going to be in this before something came up :sweat:.

    Heck, Troy Baker is pretty much Smith’s Joker too :confused:.

    (If Lucien Dodge is voicing Robin, that’ll cinch it for me. Or maybe Yuri Lownethal?).

    Still, this is very, very cool. Last year we had Batman & Scooby-Doo, now we’re getting this. Hopefully they will keep this up for a while longer, leading to some more surprising titles.

    In before yearly Batman team-up movies become the norm :p.

  11. Heard about this earlier. Can’t Wait! The crossover comics have been pretty fun for what they are. So nice to see this get animated!

    Who knows, this could hopefully open a door for an animated Marvel/DC crossover… someday.

    I doubt it. TMNT is Nick not Disney and the comics are by IDW, not Marvel. So while i’m sure it could lead to more crossover movies, probably gonna stay away from something like that.

  12. It seems like Sam Liu is the director, if this article is an indicator.

  13. It seems like Sam Liu is the director, if this article is an indicator.

    If true, we can expect some awesome action sequences :cool:.

  14. Nickelodeon and Warner Bros. Animation working together on TMNT and Batman? Then again, Nickelodeon did air Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, and Pinky and the Brain, along with Looney Tunes shorts. And that was back when the network was airing a lotta funny stuff in the 90s.
  15. Since this is a collaboration with Nickelodeon, this technically makes this their first PG-13 animated movie. Though if this ever airs on Nickelodeon, it would most likely get a PG rating given that the Michael Bay movies have been edited to that rating to air them during the day on the channel.
  16. If WB animation can work with Nick for Batman to team with the Turtles then it’s not beyond the realm for WB animation to so a huge event with Marvel Animation on a Justice League Avengers animated team up movie with Darkseid and Thanos as the prime villains. Having Tim Daly Kevin Conroy Nathan Fillion to interact with Adrian Pasdar Brian Bloom Rick D Wasserman among others would be mind blowing to happen

Having Tim Daly Kevin Conroy Nathan Fillion to interact with Adrian Pasdar Brian Bloom Rick D Wasserman among others would be mind blowing to happen

    Except that won’t happen for obvious reasons. Depending how the crossover does well, they should do the Justice League Power Rangers crossover. It can be a joint venture between DC, Hasbro & Toei. (The original company where Power Rangers originated it as Super Sentai)

  18. If WB animation can work with Nick for Batman to team with the Turtles then it’s not beyond the realm for WB animation to so a huge event with Marvel Animation on a Justice League Avengers animated team up movie with Darkseid and Thanos as the prime villains. Having Tim Daly Kevin Conroy Nathan Fillion to interact with Adrian Pasdar Brian Bloom Rick D Wasserman among others would be mind blowing to happen

    Hmmm. For a crossover, I think I’d rather see an adaptation of Batman vs. Predator.

  19. The movie will have its world premiere at WonderCon on Sunday March 31st, between 1:45pm – 3:45pm.

    It’ll take the unlikely unification of The Dark Knight and the Heroes in a Half-shell to overcome combined villainous forces afoot in Gotham City in the all-new, feature-length animated thriller, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment proudly invites WonderCon attendees to be the first live audience to witness this tantalizing team-up at the World Premiere and its star-studded post-screening panel. The Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles all-star cast is led by Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham Origins, The Last of Us) as the voice of both Batman and the Joker, making Baker the first actor to ever play both roles in the same film. Opposite Baker are the Ninja Turtles themselves-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. Other key members of the voice cast 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 and 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 and 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 and Scarecrow.

  20. This just came out.

    Looks pretty awesome :cool:.

    The designs and animation look pretty cool. It almost feels like Batman’s world in the art style of a Turtles cartoon :).

    Rachel Bloom sounds..okay as Batgirl :sweat:.

    The Turtles all sound great, and of course we get the fight between them and Batman. Poor Mikey :p.

    Looks like we’re getting the Bat-villains getting mutated like in the comic :evil:.

    I never knew how much I wanted to see Batman fight The Shredder until now :D.

  21. Batman looks a lot better in motion than in the one preview picture. This looks like classic 70s, 80s Batman. I’m really looking forward to this. Fingers crossed that it’s awesome fun.

    I’m surprised this is PG-13. The trailer made it look tamer than Return of the Joker. lol
    Only thing I can think of to warrant the rating is if the mutations looked really grotesque.

    I’d guess that it’s probably a light PG-13 like Return of The Joker and not like one of DC’s other PG-13 movies.

  22. The trailer looks really fun. Definitely a must-see for me.

    And guys, I really wouldn’t worry about the PG-13 rating. Films automatically get that rating if there are plenty of intense/prolonged action scenes. It certainly doesn’t mean the film will be gory.

  23. What’s the reasoning behind releasing digital and physical formats so far from each other? I don’t get it.

    If I had to guess, it’s because of the production time of physical media: putting it on the disc, making the case, making enough copies to meet demand, and shipping it out to retailers and making sure everything was in place before giving the go ahead to sell. Compare that to digital, which is much more simplified and streamlined, where all that needs to be done essentially is providing the movie and bonus material to the online stores and making sure no one leaks it before the release date.

  24. If this is popular I’d like a PG-13 DC animated crossover with Pokemon (since WB and Legendary are doing the theatrical Pokemon movies).

    Perhaps Superman meets Blaziken Mask?

    There’s considerably more red tape involved with that set up, with Nintendo, Game Freak, and the Pokemon Company all needing to sign off on it (at least I’m assuming as far as Nintendo and Game Freak are concerned) and The Pokemon Company have been notoriously tight fisted with the IP, even refusing to let the Pokemon amiibo be compatible with other Nintendo games outside of Smash Bros.

    Edit: Getting back to the topic at hand, do we know if this is hitting the DC Universe app the same day as physical media, or are things a little murky due to Nickelodeon’s involvement?

  25. We dont know who voicing Splinter and April O Neil yet

    For April I could see Grey DeLisle voicing her for a change

    You’d think they would announce if she’s voicing April. It’ll probably by either Tara Strong or Rachel Bloom in an uncredited role given that they’re the primary female voice actors and most WB movies don’t credit everyone. I could see Eric Bauza voicing Splinter since he’s in the movie as Leo.

  26. So, is there a DVD only release?

    There’s certainly a DVD pictured, but seemingly no mention of it. I hope there is as I love the style consistency of the DVD spines over the Blu-rays. I also watch the DVDs more often than the Blu-rays due to combi-TVs and laptops.

    I’m still annoyed that Reign of the Supermen didn’t get one in the US.

  27. I found this interesting article that talks about some of the production for the movie. One thing I found interesting is how Nickelodeon specifically requested to not have anyone from the current Rise Of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon voice their characters. For example, Eric Bauza voices Splinter in the former and Leo here, but he’s reprising the role from a different project.

    I assume it was probably because the Turtles in this are pretty different from their Rise counterparts, being more close to their standard portrayals ;).

    I can’t imagine Troy is in a rush to play both Batman and Joker in the same thing again :p.

  29. Two more things of note:

    1. While WB has been doing quite a bit of advertising, Nick has mainly done so through Twitter and YouTube status posts, not exactly posting the trailer or any clips.

    2. Eric Bauza’s take on Leo sounds a bit different than when he last voiced him in the Turtles Take Time And Space short . It’s probably due to the difference in tone . While the short is not as off the wall as Rise Of The TMNT, it does lean more towards comedy , hence the voice being more nerdy sounding. Since this movie, at least from the trailer, seems to be more grounded in reality, he goes with a voice that’s more along the lines of his traditional portrayal as the leader of the group.

  30. There will be a San Diego Comic Con 2019 exclusive figure

    SDCC 2019 DC TMNT MICHELANGELO AS BATMAN ACTION FIGURE – DC COLLECTIBLES
    Based on the hit DC Comics crossover, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mikey is decked out in Batman’s iconic cowl and cape in this awesome 2019 San Diego Comic-Con exclusive. Accessories include a sewer lid, pizza and extra sets of hands. This figure is limited to 10,000 pieces. (SRP: $30.00)

  31. Looks like the opening minutes of the movie :).

    I love seeing Barbara in her civilian identity showing off her Batgirl moves, from her sixth sense to saving those scientists ;).

    Leo cutting up that one Foot Ninja probably means they’re robots…

    I find it uncanny that Barbara in her civilian appearance looks awfuly like April.

    I hope one of the Turtles makes a comment about that :p.

  32. So did we ever find out if this movie is coming to DC Universe, or is it not coming because the TMNT are in this movie and it’s not part of the DC Universe Animated Original Movie line or whatever it’s called?

    Well, the movie is not part of the DC Universe Animated Original Movie line, but I suppose it might still show up on DC Universe. I don’t know that for certain though.

    I’ve been told just a few minutes ago that no, it will not be on the DCU service.
