DC is on the brink of unleashing the DC Extended Universe on the big screen, but they’ve been killing the direct-to-video animation for a while now. In 2014, DC released the hard-hitting Son of Batman, which was generally well received. It was followed in 2015 by Batman vs. Robin. This year, the animated series will continue with Batman: Bad Blood. The main voice cast is back, including Morena Baccarin who seems to be vying for the crown of Queen of All Nerds. There is new information about this explosive movie, including a sneak peek at the first six minutes and news of a well-known character from Batman lore who will be introduced in this movie! Needless to say, spoilers ahead.

Sorry. That’s the wrong Bad Blood. Here you go; this is the right one:
Fans of the Batman animated continuity should be ecstatic about this new movie and the fact that DC seems committed to continuing the series.
