  • Title: Batman Ninja
  • IMDb: link

The next of DC’s straight-to-video animated movies transplants Batman (Roger Craig Smith), his enemies and his allies, to feudal Japan for a battle with the Joker (Tony Hale). Tara Strong, Grey DeLisle, and Will Friedle also star. Batman Ninja will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on May 8th.

  • Title: Batman and Harley Quinn
  • IMDb: link

I’ve got to admit I love Bruce Timm returning to the world of Batman: The Animated Series, however the recasting of Harley Quinn leaves something to be desired. Batman and Harley Quinn. The movie will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on August 29th.

  • 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.

  • Title: Batman: Assault on Arkham
  • IMDB: link

Following Son of Batman (available for download now, and on DVD and Blu-ray next week), DC Animation turns to Batman: Assault on Arkham for its next project. Returning Kevin Conroy as Batman, the film is obviously inspired by the popular video game franchise whose design I’ve never really care much for (although the gameplay is at times quite a bit of fun), in a storyline centering around the Joker (Troy Baker), Arkham Asylum, and a New 52-ish version of the Suicide Squad (Neal McDonough, Eliza Dushku, Hynden Walch, Kevin Grevioux). Batman: Assault on Arkham should hit the direct-to-video market sometime later this summer.
