REVIEW 

I normally don’t discuss the packaging as it’s normally just your standard release however, being that this is in partnership with Mattel Toys WB opted to include a toy in this case an orange Man-Bat, Orange you may ask me too, but for the toy collector it’s a nice treat it also provides a 5 dollar discount coupon on any Mattel Batman Unlimited Toy, which is cool too.

As for the film I gotta say I had fun with it, it reminded me of the series Batman: The Brave & The Bold, in which Batman teams up with various heroes and there is a bit of light-hearted humor(not from Batman of course). I did find it curious that The Flash & Green Arrow were here and not other animal based heroes such as Vixen or Robin, but I suppose that is because the Toyline must not have them. The animation is an area I am not too keen on but the story works well enough that I was able to enjoy it anyway and again it’s based on the toys as well so can’t complain there. The voice acting also worked out nicely as we get a few returning actors(not in their previous roles) and some new actors as well. Overall it was a fun experience and if you are not sure about picking this release up rest assured the extras will at least make it worth picking up.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
