The mysterious disappearance of Batman, coupled with the emergence of powerful and malevolent new villains in Gotham City, force Nightwing (voice of Sean Maher) and Robin (Stuart Allan) to take crime-fighting into their own hands - while simultaneously searching for their missing leader. They're not alone for long. New super heroes Batwoman (Yvonne Strahovski) and Batwing (Gaius Charles) - each armed with her/his own sensibilities, physical abilities and crime-fighting tools - arrive in Gotham to assist in the cause. As this new "family" strives to find its own dynamic, chilling clues lead the group to suspect the Dark Knight may have gone over to the dark side. It's up to the entire Bat team to uncover the truth before Gotham City falls prey to its greatest threat yet. Here's what Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing, had to say in her statement.
"Batman: Bad Blood is a thrill-ride that will keep every fan on the edge of their seat. Featuring an original story, a top-notch voice cast and dynamic new characters, Batman: Bad Blood is an essential addition to the DC Universe Original Movie collection."
