DC Animation's newest charge into the crime-coated corners of Gotham City is the upcoming Batman: Bad Blood animated feature. This ambitious project is currently classified as "in development" and follows the Batman: RIP comic-book storyline with aspects of Batman and Robin and bits of Batman Inc. blended in.
Warner Bros' direct-to-video feature is due to be delivered on Blu-ray and digital download sometime in 2016. The multi-layered plot revolves around Batman apparently being killed by a mysterious mob boss called the Heretic, with Batwoman witnessing his death and Dick Grayson reluctantly becoming Gotham's avenging hero during the ensuing power struggle, accompanied by Damian Wayne's Robin.
Batman: Bad Blood also boasts a stellar vocal cast, including Yvonne Strahovski as Katherine Kane / Batwoman, Gaius Charles as Luke Fox / Batwing, Jason O'Mara as Bruce Wayne / Batman, Stuart Allan as Damian Wayne / Robin, Sean Maher as Dick Grayson / Nightwing, Morena Baccarin as Talia al Ghul and Ernie Hudson as Lucius Fox.
