Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2019)
 
https://dcanimated.com/WF/dcam/batmanvtmnt/01.jpg

Yes folks it's actually happening. SyFy has the exclusive details on an upcoming animated movie based on the Batman/TMNT crossover comic book miniseries written by James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams II.

https://www.syfy.com/syfywire/exclus...mpression=true

Cast includes Troy Baker reprising as both Batman and Joker, making him the first voice actor to play both roles; along with Eric Bauza and Darren Criss reprising as Leonardo and Raphael from the Turtles Take Time (And Space) short, Tom Kenny returning as Penguin, John Dimaggio reprising as Mr. Freeze from Batman: The Brave and The Bold, Carlos Alazraqui as returning for Bane, and of course Tara Strong as both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. Further confirmed casting includes Rachel Bloom as Batgirl, Kyle Mooney as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn as Donetello, and Cas Anvar as Ra'as Al Ghul.

I don't know about you lot but I'm already hooked line and sinker!

I guess it was inevitable that Troy Baker would eventually voice both Batman and Joker in a single production.

Although does anyone get the sense that this feels like a Roger Craig Smith Batman movie? The costume looks like Batman's Batman Unlimited suit and Troy Baker is Roger's Joker. I wonder if he was busy or if they just had Troy do it for convenience.

And can they find somebody else to voice Ivy instead of just having Tara do both Harley and Ivy whenever they're in a movie together? Maybe it's a budget thing? I dunno.

I can see the Turtle VA's fitting them well, and Eric and Darren are reprising from some Nick shorts.

Uh... no. This batsuit is the blue batsuit he wore in a LOT of older comics. In particular this looks like the 60s or 70s one. The Unlimited suit has a different cowl shape, a chin strap, a different chest logo, a different belt and no "underwear" on the outside.

It's really cool that Troy finally gets to be both Batman and Joker in the same project. I've been waiting since 2013 for this to happen.

While the cast is almost all reprisals, I'm excited to hear John DiMaggio as Mr. Freeze again, I always thought his take was underrated and he should reprise. I could do without Tara as Harley again but c'est la vie.

I find it amusing that Eric Bauza and Darren Criss are paired up again as Leo and Raph respectively since they were in the Brandon Auman TMNT shorts a while back. Though I wish they brought Scott Menville and Greg Cipes back for Donny and Mikey if they were gonna reuse them.

Either way this should be a fun watch.

I know they don't look exactly the same, it resembles the classic look more, but the colors and base design feel very in-line with each other.

I can live with Tara as Harley at this point, I just wish she wasn't also voicing Ivy too.

I mean, it's not like she's voicing Batgirl in this either...

We can be lucky they didn't just cast her as all 3.

I don't mind Tara returning as Harley or Ivy, but yeah I would like to see someone else take a chance as either or both characters, maybe bring back Grey Griffin or Laura Bailey? Or heck maybe get Kate MiCucci as Harley.

I wouldn't mind them bringing back Natasha Leggero as Ivy. She was pretty great in Justice League Action.

Anyway, this is some pretty big news for the comic book based animation media. Hopefully this could open avanues for future crossovers; hopefully even a DC/Marvel crossover... someday...

Re: Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
 
Haven't read the comic it's based on yet, but I always thought it was a cool concept (I personally think a Daredevil/TMNT crossover would've been more interesting, but hey, I'll take that I can get. :P).

We'll see.

I get why but kinda unfair that for Eric they used Woody Woodpecker for his credit.

I know right; The Mel Blanc of our generation deverse better than... the role of a character Mel himself played... still, yeah Eric has far better roles than that.

I can't help, but feel little mad that this will probably be the closest I ever get to an aninated adaptation of IDW's Turtle comics (or any adaptation period). Sure, these will most likely be just generic versions of the Turtles, rather than the IDW versions specifically, but still.

I just realized, do we know who's voice directing this? Because it would be funny if it was Sam Riegel. :P

Or Rob Paulsen ;)

It's also been confirmed the film will be PG-13 for "Fantasy Violence." I'll admit, this did kind of throw me for a loop, like Justice League vs Fatal Five, but then again it is an adaptation of a comic that actually was rated-T and it was fairly violent and even slipped in some mild language here and there; on the other hand this could be another example of the MPAA's arbitrary rating system.

Either way, as long as this movie is still good I'm not gonna harp on it.

First trailer has been revealed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ifaDsXnjmI

Find it kinda neat the little easter eggs/throwbacks included. Penguin's umbrella colours from the DC Super Powers Collection toys. Both Shredder and the Foot Ninja bare some visual similarities to the 87 versions (as in the purple masks with yellow eyes + red foot symbol).

Music Meister 03-12-2019 10:44 AM

Re: Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
 
Huh, interesting. Unless I missed something, I didnít see anything about alternate dimensions so it seems to imply the TMNT and Batman take place in the same universe.

Looks good so far, odd they didnít reveal Shredderís actor but seems to have a decently big role in this. He didnít have much lines but I wanna say he sounded a little like Eric Bauza, would be cool if heís doing double duty.

I mean I was already excited for this but this trailer keeps me hyped, canít wait. Honestly canít remember a DC Animated movie I was excited for.

Looks really awesome. Definitely hyped for this.

Troy's going for a more Kevin Conroy esque approach here and it sounds really nice.

Andrew Kishino is doing Shredder.

More casts have been confirmed.

Ben Giroux as Damien Wayne's Robin
Andrew Keshino as Shredder
Keith Ferguson as Baxter Stockman and Two-Face
Brian George returning as Alfred
And Jim Meskimen returns as James Gordon and Scarecrow

Me is curious as to who'll play April, asumming that's her with the pony tail in the begining clip of the trailer.

Keith's a good choice for both roles.

also good to see Brian as Alfred and Jim as Jim (haha) again.

Honestly, that's probably for the better. 90% of times when crossover stories happen because of dimension hopping, the impetus for why it is happening kinda pushes the actual meat of the story to the side. There has to be an explanation for what makes travelling between dimensions possible in the first place, there has to be a reason why characters are travelling through dimensions, there has to be some ticking clock element to put one or both heroes return to their home dimensions at risk and usually the villain plot/main conflict revolves around whatever is making the dimension hopping happen. All of these take time away from character interactions and/or makes the overall story more generic and by-the-book.

Crossovers are usually just fun, but silly fanservice, and get rarely treated as canon afterwards. Unless it is completely impossible to make the two properties work in the same universe (and in this case, it really isn't), there's no reason to complicate the matters with alternative universe stuff.

Re: Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
 
I'm kind of surprised Troy Baker's Batman voice sounds so much like it did in the Telltale games. I thought they used modulation to make it sound that deep.

The Turtles all sound pretty great.

Rachel Bloom sounds...kind of awkward as Batgirl? She sounds the least refined of the voices in the trailer.

and her VA technically once voiced April too.

I'm pretty sure it might've been an intentional homage.

It has been a long while since I've enjoyed a DC animated film.
It's also one of the few that doesn't force the "edgey" side of the movie. There's a "****" and "hell" thrown around but it keeps enough to make it feel more mature but not too much that it comes off like a teen edge lord is writing.
Humor and action on point, the characters play off each other well and it is just super enjoyable all around.

Not super surprising but its stuff you want in a crossover between the two. Highly recommended from me.
