Batman: Bad Blood

‘Cause baby now we got… an autographed Batman: Bad Blood poster! Sorry, the predictable Taylor Swift pun was just too tempting to resist. DC’s latest animated movie features the iconic Bruce Wayne, a.k.a. Batman, but this time around, it’s his supporting characters who are getting more of the spotlight!

Batman vanishes after a brutal fight with a new villain, the Heretic, and it’s up to the Dark Knight’s allies to make sure Gotham City is safe. Just like in the comics, Dick Grayson, a.k.a. Nightwing, puts on the cape and cowl, and patrols the city with Damian Wayne, a.k.a. Robin. They aren’t the only heroes in the DC city, though! Batwoman and Batwing also emerge, and it’ll take the entire team to battle the new threat that not only faces Gotham City, but also the world. If you want to learn more about the movie, CLICK HERE for our interviews with the talent and explaining why we think it’s worth a purchase!

To celebrate the animated film’s release, we’re giving away a big poster that’s autographed by the talent! It includes signatures from Yvonne Strahovski (Batwoman), Sean Maher (Nightwing), Travis Willingham (Heretic), Jay Oliva (director), and Phil Bourassa (character designer).

Batman Bad Blood

Article by Gregg Katzman

Despite being a master of stealth, Batman’s no stranger to the spotlight. The Dark Knight has been the focus of several animated features (like the recent Batman vs. Robin and Son of Robin) and understandably so – he is the most popular hero, after all. However, in the latest Batman animated movie, the Caped Crusader steps aside so the rest of the Bat family can receive some extra attention. In Batman: Bad Blood, the iconic hero vanishes after an explosive clash with the imposing villain the Heretic. Yup, this story draws inspiration from Grant Morrison’s work. With Gotham’s protector absent, Nightwing, Robin, Batwoman, Batwing, and Alfred must step up to save the city – and possibly the world – from the latest threat that has emerged from the shadows.
