Default Batman vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2019)



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...
