In the latest direct-to-video Scooby-Doo adventure, the Mystery Incorporated gang join forces with Batman and the allies he’s met during his adventures in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold cartoon. Yes, really.
According to IGN, the newest Scooby-Doo movie starts off by having the Mystery Machine drive into Gotham City, only for the crew to discover that many of their own enemies are at large in addition to escapees from Arkham and Blackgate. The team joins forces with Batman’s own crew of superheroes – which include members like the Question, Black Canary, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, and Detective Chimp – to stop the combined might of two groups of enemies.
A trailer for the movie can be seen below:
Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold will be released on January 9, 2018. The movie includes the voice talents of Diedrich Bader as Batman, Frank Welker as Scooby-Doo and Fred, Grey Griffin as Daphne and Black Canary, Matthew Lillard as Shaggy, Kate Micucci as Velma, Jeff Bennett as Joker, Jeffrey Combs as The Question, John DiMaggio as Aquaman, Nika Futterman as Catwoman, Nicholas Guest as Martian Manhunter, John Michael Higgins as The Riddler, Tom Kenny as Penguin and Plastic Man, Kevin Michael Richardson as Detective Chimp, Tara Strong as Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, and Fred Tatasciore as Harvey Bullock.
10 Characters Who Should Appear In The ‘Nightwing’ Movie
So Michael Cera’s appearance as Dick Grayson in The LEGO Batman Movie wasn’t enough for all you Nightwing fans, huh? Well, Warner Bros. is listening and has decided to give Heroic Hollywood’s number one sidekick his own movie. The LEGO Batman Movie helmer Chris McKay has been named the director of a Nightwing movie no one saw coming. Nightwing’s place in the DC Extended Universe is up in the air. How long ago did he quit being Robin? Are he and Batman speaking right now? Why wasn’t he mentioned in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice?
While the movie will likely answer all those questions, I expect it will also serve as an introduction to a different corner of the Batman universe, similar to the upcoming Gotham City Sirens. Batman might be in it for a scene or two, but the movie will need a full supporting cast to help Nightwing appear as the kickass, sociable character he is. Bruce Wayne has got the brooding down, but former circus performer Dick Grayson knows how to have fun in a way his mentor doesn’t.
