EXCLUSIVE TRAILER DEBUT: Joker Rules in “Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem”

by  in Comic News, Movie News, TV News Comment

Earlier this year, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment launched a new line of animated films based on the Mattel‘s “Batman Unlimited” toy line, a new take on the iconic hero, his friends and his villains. In “Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts,” Batman (Roger Craig Smith) and his teammates — including the newly-introduced CybeRex, a robotic dinosaur — prevented Killer Croc, Cheetah, Man-Bat and Silverback from running wild and wreaking havoc in the streets.

Today, CBR has the exclusive debut of the first trailer for the second “Batman Unlimited” animated movie, “Monster Mayhem.” In addition to re-teaming Batman with Green Arrow, Nightwing, Cyborg and more of his heroic compatriots, it also features the first appearance of the Joker (Troy Baker), who is aided in his Halloween quest to render modern technology useless and take over Gotham City by Solomon Grundy, Silver Banshee, Clayface and Scarecrow.
