  • Title: Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts
  • IMDb: link

I’ve seen Batman Unlimited Toys on shelves for over a year and been confused as to what unseen version of the Caped Crusader they were for. Well now we know (and knowing is half the battle!). The toys are tied to a new straight-to-DVD film (and eventual series?) hitting stores on May 12th. Apparently aiming for a younger audience, I have mixed feelings about the design of the characters. I appreciate the cartoon keeping the classic blue and gray look of Batman, but the enlarged and distorted Bat-symbol on his chest just seems odd. I’m pleased to see the show has gone with Red Robin’s pre-New 52 costume, and Green Arrow is passable enough, but what’s up with the anime-influence design of both Nightwing and Flash? With the movie finally hitting shelves on May 12th you can expect to see more toys including Batman’s robot dinosaur who eats criminals. Yeah, that’s a real thing.

Jessica Chobot and Nerdist broke the news of the characters involved in TNT’s new pilot for Titans. The slightly older version of the Teen Titans will consist of pre-Nightwing Dick Grayson, a wheelchair-bound Barbara Gordon, Raven, Hawk and Dove, and Starfire. I can’t say I’ all that excited to hear about Hawk and Dove’s involvement, but the Oracle version of Barbara Gordon is certainly an interesting twist.
