    Sigh, so DC's trying to be Marvel again, eh? That explains why Marvel is acting more like DC. Oh how the turns have tabled.

    Batwoman, Batwing Get Keys to the Batcave in an All-New DC Universe Original Movie

    When Batman goes missing, it will take the entire Bat “family” – including new additions Batwoman and Batwing – to keep the peace in Gotham City and unravel the mystery behind the Dark Knight’s disappearance in Batman: Bad Blood. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the all-new DC Universe Original Movie will be available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on February 2, 2016 on Blu-Ray™ Deluxe Edition, Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack and DVD.

    Batman: Bad Blood will be available on Blu-rayTM Deluxe Edition for $29.96 SRP, Blu-rayTM Combo Pack for $24.98 SRP and on DVD for $19.98 SRP. The Blu-rayTM Combo Pack includes a digital version of the movie on Digital HD with UltraViolet. The Blu-ray™ Deluxe Edition will include the Blu-Ray™ Combo Pack, along with an exclusive Nightwing figurine in a numbered limited edition gift set. Fans can also own Batman: Bad Bloodin Digital HD on January 19 via purchase from digital retailers.

    The mysterious disappearance of Batman, coupled with the emergence of powerful and malevolent new villains in Gotham City, force Nightwing (voice of Sean 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 (Yvonne 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.

    “Batman: Bad Blood is a thrill-ride that will keep every fan on the edge of their seat,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Featuring an original story, a top-notch voice cast and dynamic new characters, Batman: Bad Blood is an essential addition to the DC Universe Original Movie collection.”

    As the voice of Batman, Jason O’Mara (Complications, Terra Nova) leads a celebrity-laden cast that includes Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, 24, The Astronauts Wives Club) as Batwoman/Katherine Kane, Morena Baccarin (Homeland, Gotham) as Talia al Ghul, Sean Maher (Firefly, Serenity, Much Ado About Nothing) as Nightwing, Gaius Charles (Grey’s Anatomy, Friday Night Lights, Aquarius) as Batwing, Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters) as Lucius Fox, and Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin) as Robin/Damian Wayne. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Batman: Bad Blood is directed by Jay Oliva (Man of Steel, Batman vs. Robin) from a script by J.M. DeMatteis (Batman vs. Robin). James Tucker (Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Batman vs. Robin) is Supervising Producer. Benjamin Melniker & Michael Uslan are Executive Producers. Sam Register is Executive Producer.

    Great to have a release date. I'm realy looking forward to this.

    Regarding The Killing Joke I kind of figured it would be the 3rd release next year. It doesn't seem to be set in the animated New52 universe and the out of continuity movies were left as the final releases in the past 2 years.

    Good looking cover art.

    Putting the fight... should be a fun one. Must be Jay Oliva-centric. :D

    Pity, there's no commentary reel.

    Wow, January 19 for the digital release. Seems earlier and earlier than the physical.

    Logline seems to hint they're going to lead the cast to think Heretic might be Batman. Makes since Heretic will be a mystery to them and they have to unravel his story.

    Of course not. Batman - Justice League - stand-alone Batman. I thought that this pattern was pretty well established by now.

    Really, really excited for this one. It's a distillation of my favorite comic stories (Batman and Robin, pre and post reboot) and it's wonderful to finally see Kate get animated. A lil sad that we don't have Stephanie as Batgirl here, but again, Batwoman and Batwing make up for it :).

    I should eventually get to the other Damian-starring DTVs, for better or worse. I'm a terrible fan of him for being so behind.
