Warner Bros. Animation has produced many incredible animated Batman films over the past 25 years, and their next offering, Batman: Bad Blood, looks to continue that proud tradition.
With the film’s home video release just weeks away, WB has treated fans to yet another clip. In it, we see Nightwing/Dick Grayson (voiced by Sean Maher) engage in a well choreographed battle with the hulking villain known as Blockbuster. While the two engage in a brutal round of fisticuffs, the filmmakers provide some levity to the situation as Nightwing attempts to have a conversation with his girlfriend, Starfire (voiced by Kari Wahlgren). It sounds like she yearns for his company, to put it lightly. Their conversation is cut short by Alfred, who alerts the young hero of a most dire emergency. Perhaps this is when they discover Batman has gone missing.
Fans may remember this is not the first time that a conversation between Nightwing and Starfire has abruptly ended. In the previous film, Batman vs. Robin, a phone conversation between the two was interrupted when Damian Wayne decided to go rogue. It’s probably no accident that this keeps happening.
If you listen carefully to the embedded clip, you will notice they reference Titans Tower. With the next DC Universe animated film being Justice League vs. Titans, it would seem the filmmakers are already planting some seeds.
