A symbol that criminals fear, Batman is nonetheless mortal. His legacy, however, has created a family of heroes who rise to the challenge and defend Gotham City for the forces of evil… if they don’t kill each other first.
Building on Son of Batman and Batman Vs Robin comes Bad Blood, an animated film that will blend several story lines from R.I.P., Batman Inc. and more. Featuring a gang that leads to the ‘death’ of Batman, Bad Blood sees a race to fill the gap left by the dark knight detective. When Nightwing dons the cowl, Damian Wayne becomes a surly sidekick as Batwoman is a relative outsider in the war on crime. All three are joined by a new hero, Batwing. But are four heroes enough to fill the shoes of Batman?
Bad Blood will see several actors return to the roles with Jason O’Mara making his fifth outing as Batman, Sean Maher once more voicing Nightwing and Stuart Allan providing the petulent tones of Robin. This film will also introduce Ernie Hudson as Lucious Fox, Gaius Charles as Batwing and Yvonne Strhovski as Batwoman. Several villains will make an appearance including Brick, Electrocutioner, Firefly, and of course ‘The Heretic.’
(excuse the many cut outs in the video, this can also be seen in the Justice League: Gods and Monsters release)
Produced by James Tucker, Bad Blood is a film that explores the Bat-Family dynamic through an action-packed adventure. While that Batman is missing from the monthly comics (unless you are reading the outstanding Batman ’66), the animated features have held the torch high for the caped crusader.
The third in a series of Bat-themed animated stories, Bad Blood has a TBA 2016 street date
