When Warner Bros. announced that Batman Unlimited would be bringing a new series of animated ‘movies’ for fans, they promised it would be a way to play around in the Batman universe and offer new ideas for young kids to enjoy that would be a little different. Our first details and look at Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants (which comes to DVD on September 13th) is definitely something different.
It’s kind of a neat idea, though it feels like any other giant mecha/monster cartoon idea out there. The biggest different here, however, is that we’re dealing with Batman and Green Arrow rather than Power Rangers or Voltron. So yeah, it’s a little strange but interesting all at the same time. At the very least it looks entertaining.
Batman will need the help from several of his Super Hero pals — Green Arrow, Nightwing, The Flash and Robin – to take down a crew of Super-Villains on a scale he’s never seen before in Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants. Produced by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, this thrilling new addition to the Batman Unlimited animated film trilogy comes to DVD ($19.98 SRP) via Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on September 13, 2016 and on Digital HD on August 30, 2016 via purchase from digital retailers.
The Dark Knight is back doing what he does best – protecting the citizens of Gotham City – in the third installment of the Batman Unlimited series, Batman Unlimited: Mechs vs. Mutants. When evil scientist Mr. Freeze activates his latest invention on two of Gotham City’s most formidable criminals – Killer Croc and Bane – things go from bad to worse. Turning them into super-sized mutant monsters, the Super-Villains start bashing through the streets of Gotham City with no end in sight. It’s up to the Caped Crusader and his Super Hero team to save the day by putting the giant robot mechs in their place – but it will be an uphill battle as they face off against enormous foes.
