The official trailer for Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been released and it has brought back a lot of memories of when I used to do a similar crossover with my action figure collection as a kid. The animated movie will make its world premiere on March 31, 2019, at WonderCon Anaheim!

Update: March 14, 2019 – Dates for Batman vs. TMNT Digital, Blu-ray, and 4K UHD releases have been added, along with the accompanying special features, to the original article which follows.

The trailer made its debut courtesy of Warner Bros. Animation and Nickelodeon. The four ninja brothers enter Gotham and meet the Caped Crusader. Of course, Batman and his Bat Family are suspicious of the turtles, but they soon team up to fight Shredder and the Foot Clan.

Here’s the trailer!

The plot has the turtles meeting the Batman through a transdimensional encounter. With Batman having to deal with Shredder and the Foot Clan, the ninja turtles have to face Batman’s iconic rogues’ gallery.

I enjoyed seeing the turtles being owned by The Dark Knight during the battle shown in the trailer. He is Batman!

The voice cast includes Troy Baker as both Batman and The Joker, Golden Globe winner Darren Criss as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (Saturday Night Live) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace and Frankie) as Donatello, Eric Bauza (The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo.

Additional voice actors in the film include Rachel Bloom as Batgirl, Tom Kenny as The Penguin, John DiMaggio as Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong as both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Carlos Alazraqui as Bane, and Cas Anvar as Ra’s al Ghul.

Jake Castorena has directed Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles using a script from Marly Halpern-Graser. The story is inspired by James Tynion IV and Freddie William II’s comics miniseries Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The miniseries was released back in December of 2015.
