Exciting news for Batman fans, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will unveil the sequel to their recent animated feature Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on August 18, 2015. The new film is called Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem and it’s designed as a family-friendly alternative to the more mature-themed Batman animated features that Warner Bros. has been releasing (such as the recent PG-13 rated Batman Vs Robin). The Batman Unlimited feature films are based on the currently available toy line of the same name.
Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem will be available early via the Digital HD format on August 4.
Official Synopsis (courtesy of Warner Bros.): “It’s Halloween night in Gotham City and Scarecrow, Clayface, Silver Banshee and Solomon Grundy have hit the streets to stir up trouble! Batman is on the trail of the city’s spookiest villains while, further complicating matters, the clown prince of crime himself, The Joker, is ruling over this mysterious crew of misfit criminals. It’s up to the Dark Knight to stop this gruesome gang before they unleash “digital laughter,” a computer virus that’s part of a diabolical plan to jeopardize all of Gotham City’s vital technology. Batman, Green Arrow, Cyborg, Nightwing and Red Robin must combine forces to battle these baddies and save the city.”
“Batman fans of all ages can enjoy the newest DC Comics animated adventure,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “This original movie will provide family-friendly action and electrifying plot twists, and keep viewers on their toes until the very end.”
