“Batman: Bad Blood” — the latest DC Comics-based animated feature — arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this week. CBR has an exclusive “Bad Blood” clip, featuring The Heretic (voice of Travis Willingham) leading a break-in at Wayne Enterprises headquarter, with Lucius Fox (Ernie Hudson) the target and his son, Luke Fox (Gaius Charles), fighting back. Of course, given that comics fans already know he’s set to become the armored superhero Batwing, he can hold his own (though the odds aren’t in his favor in this clip).
“Bad Blood” also features the returns of Jason O’Mara as Batman, Stuart Allan as Robin (Damian Wayne) and Sean Maher as Nightwing; plus the introduction of Yvonne Strahovsk as Batwoman. All four, plus Willingham and Charles, are scheduled to attend tonight’s west coast premiere of “Batman: Bad Blood,” taking place at The Paley Center for Media in Beverly hills and also featuring producer James Tucker, director Jay Oliva and character designer Phil Bourassa.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has unveiled another freshly released “Bad Blood” clip, featuring an assembled Bat-squad ready for action:
Here’s the official plot description of “Batman: Bad Blood”:
The mysterious disappearance of Batman (voice of Jason O’Mara), coupled with the emergence of powerful and malevolent new villains in Gotham City, force Nightwing (Maher) and Robin (Stuart Allan) to take crime-fighting into their own hands – while simultaneously searching for their missing leader. They’re not alone for long. New super heroes Batwoman (Strahovski) and Batwing (Gaius Charles) – each armed with her/his own sensibilities, physical abilities and crime-fighting tools – arrive in Gotham to assist in the cause. As this new “family” strives to find its own dynamic, chilling clues lead the group to suspect the Dark Knight may have gone over to the dark side. It’s up to the entire Bat team to uncover the truth before Gotham City falls prey to its greatest threat yet.
The “Batman: Bad Blood” DVD and Blu-ray is on sale Tuesday, Feb. 2 and is available now via iTunes and the Google Play Store.
