New Batman Cartoon Intended to Sell Toys….Just Like Other Batman Cartoons!



DC is coming off a disappointing Aquaman DVD but they have a new product destined to take my money when the kiddos hear about it.

Two toy lines based on DC Comics’ Justice League characters are being brought to life through animated movies and short films.

Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts” will debut May 12, as a direct-to-homevideo animated movie that features Batman, the Flash, Red Robin, Nightwing and Green Arrow as they face off against super villain the Penguin, while introducing cyber animals as new foes. A sequel film will be released around the second half of 2015.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the “Batman Unlimited” films on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. In addition, WB will also produce 22 two-minute shorts around the “Batman Unlimited” toys, making them available for free on a variety of digital platforms, while a companion app also will provide young fans with access to content.

They HAD to put Nightwing and Red Robin in it.  I could have talked the boys off this cash grab otherwise.  But my boys love them some Batman Family…
