‘Scooby-Doo! & Batman’ Clip Delivers Unlikely Crossover

A new clip of the upcoming direct-to-video animated feature Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold shows how Batman meets Scooby and the gang.

As is usually the case in Scooby-Doo lore, Scooby and Shaggy are both designated as bait for the monster to chase while Velma, Daphne, and Fred set up a trap. When the trap fails, Batman intervenes and admonishes the team for putting themselves in danger — but they subsequently offer their help.

This seems like one of the weirder crossovers that they’ve done with their animated Scooby-Doo line, but given that it serves as a sort of revival for the beloved Batman: The Brave and the Bold series, I’m sure that many fans will give it a shot.

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.

Top 7 DC Animated Movies That Should Be Made Next

The DC Animated movies have always been such a treat to watch. Sure, some of them are corny, but the animation is consistently top notch. Bruce Timm set the entire DC animated block in motion back in the day, but now the department has expanded far beyond anyone’s initial expectations. There are so many amazing stories out there in the DC Universe that deserve the animated treatment. Not only are there a plethora of amazing characters fans haven’t seen animated yet, the opportunity to make a movie introduces minor fans to heroes they would have never seen otherwise.

While this is a wishlist of sorts, I’m also framing it as a realistic list for the Warner Bros. animation team. I know they only make movies they think will make them money, so I tried my best to pick stories that actually have the potential to financially succeed as an animated feature. That doesn’t mean every movie has Batman in it, but these were picked as opportunities that would please fans and producers alike. Trust me though, there are some amazing stories on this list that deserve the animation treatment right away!
