Hot on the heels of the announcement of Batman Unlimited and Super Friends cartoons, we’ve got a look at the first trailer for Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts, set to arrive on May 12, 2015 on Blu-rayTM Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD. Check the trailer below and see our comments:
Alright, so the first thing I did was watch the trailer several times trying to figure out who was voicing the Penguin. The voice sounded so familiar. There’s no official voice cast list released yet, but I’m pretty sure it’s Dana Snyder (Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force) as the Penguin.
Secondly, I’m glad to see a kid friendly Batman series being made once again. My youngest son was absolutely in love with Batman: The Brave and the Bold when it aired (as was I). Since it ended, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man has taken it’s place as the superhero cartoon to watch over and over. However, with his recent discovery of the Flash from the CW series, including him in the Batman Unlimited “universe” was a smart move. Same thing goes for Green Arrow as well. I really hope this is kid friendly. The style and tone of the preview certainly lead me to believe that, but the “for ages 13 and up” on the box art has me worried. I guess I’ll wait and see.
Here’s the full description for Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts
Another storm is brewing in Gotham and it’s not only raining cats and dogs but evil Cyber Animals! When the city is plagued by a slew of bizarre crimes committed by the animal-inspired villain squad, known as the Animilitia – made up of Silverback, Cheetah, Killer Croc and Man-Bat – Batman must swing into action to investigate. These animalistic villains bring new and exciting challenges for the hero of Gotham, and Batman must find a way to bring these criminal creatures to a halt! But could the Animilitia be working for powerful businessman Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a. The Penguin? How does The Penguin’s new invention of robotic Cyber Animals fit into the mix? In the end, it’ll take all the combined forces of Batman, Flash, Green Arrow, Nightwing and Red Robin to fight off these Animal Instinct
