Cowabunga! The heroes in a half shell are bringing their unique brand of crimefighting to the dark streets of Gotham City. Entertainment Weekly has shared the exclusive first trailer for the Warner Bros. Animated and Nickelodeon animated feature, Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Based on the beloved comic crossover from James Tynion IV and Freddie Williams, this feature-length film is directed by Jake Castorena with screenwriter Marly Halpern-Graser. It follows the pizza lovers after they track Shredder to Gotham City and come face to face with the “supernatural Bat creature” they have heard so much about. After Shredder teams with Ra’s al Ghul and various rogues in Batman’s gallery, the heroes must put aside their difference to take down the real enemy.

He is joined by Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) as Batgirl, Ben Giroux (Hart of Dixie) as Robin, Brian George (Seinfeld) as Alfred, and Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) as Commissioner Gordon. Over on the Turtles side is Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace) as Raphael, Kyle Mooney (SNL) as Michelangelo, Baron Vaughn (Grace & Frankie) as Donatello, and Eric Bauza (The Woody Woodpecker Show) as Leonardo.
Leading the rogues is John DiMaggio (Adventure Time) as Mr. Freeze, Tara Strong (Teen Titans Go!) as both Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Penguin, Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911!) as Bane, Cas Anvar (The Expanse) as Ra’s al Ghul, Keith Ferguson (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends) as both Baxter Stockman and Two-Face, Andrew Kishino (The Lion Guard) as Shredder, and Meskimen as Scarecrow.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman: The Brave and the Bold’s Ben Jones is at the helm as producer, alongside Benjamin Melniker, Michael Uslan, Sam Register, and Chris Viscardi as executive producers.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be released through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on digital and on 4K Ultra HD combo pack and Blu-ray combo pack this spring 2019.
