After we were all treated to one kick-ass trailer for Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles a few days ago, I’d suspected that we’d learn much more about the monumental mashup’s home video release before the week was over. As it turned out, I was proven correct.
Luckily, we won’t have to wait too much longer to get our hands on this bad boy, as it’s been confirmed that it’ll arrive on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack on June 4th. Or, if Digital is your thing, you’ll be able to join the adventure a little earlier on May 14th.
To give an idea of what to expect from the feature itself, it’s best you know that the flick is based on the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book miniseries written by James Tynion IV and illustrated by Freddie Williams II from a few years back. In that, the Dark Knight and Heroes in a Half-Shell united in a cross-dimensional fiasco that saw Ra’s al Ghul and other Arkham freaks collude with Shredder and the Foot Clan. If the animated adaptation is half as good, then we’re in for one heck of a show.
