The animated Bat Family grows bigger than ever in this new animated trailer…
Just yesterday we got to see the premiere of the Daredevil Season 2 trailer from New York Comic-Con, and now we’re getting another formerly exclusive trailer from MYCC. Batman: Bad Blood is the next DC original animated film, and it features the first ever animated appearance of both Batwing and Batwoman, not to mention a whole team of villains to battle the continually evolving Bat Family. Check it out below.
If you haven’t been paying super close attention to DC’s direct to disc cartoons, then you may not know Bad Blood is the third in a trilogy. After introducing Damien as Batman’s son and the new Robin in Son of Batman, then adapting The Court of Owls comics into the Batman Vs. Robin film of this year, Bad Blood is the next step in that story. And it seems to be taking cues from both Scott Snyder’s New 52 run on Batman as well as Grant Morrison’s colossal RIP/Incorporated run with Bruce and company. Bruce disappears, Dick Grayson teams with Damien, and Batwoman tries going independent before joining the Bat Family.
I’m not just hyped that the film features Killer Moth, one of the most underrated Bat bad guys, but also that I think them solidifying the Bat Family in this film would lead fairly naturally to a Death of The Family adaptation. It’d be a real thrill to see Snyder’s grotesque version of The Joker in fully animated glory. But first Bad Blood has to hit its 2016 release date.
