The Dark Knight is going a little wild in Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts, a new animated DC Comics film coming May 12 to home video from Warner Bros. Animation.
Here’s how the studio describes the feature:
Another storm is brewing in Gotham and it’s not only raining cats and dogs but evil Cyber Animals! When the city is plagued by a slew of bizarre crimes committed by the animal-inspired villain squad, known as the Animilitia – made up of Silverback, Cheetah, Killer Croc and Man-Bat – Batman must swing into action to investigate. These animalistic villains bring new and exciting challenges for the hero of Gotham, and Batman must find a way to bring these criminal creatures to a halt! But could the Animilitia be working for powerful businessman Oswald Cobblepot a.k.a. The Penguin? How does The Penguin’s new invention of robotic Cyber Animals fit into the mix? In the end, it’ll take all the combined forces of Batman, Flash, Green Arrow, Nightwing and Red Robin to fight off these Animal Instincts.
And here’s a trailer:
Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts will be available on Blu-ray Combo Pack for $24.98 and on DVD for $19.98. The Blu-ray Combo Pack includes a digital version of the movie on Digital HD with UltraViolet. Fans can also own Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts in Digital HD on May 12 via purchase from digital retailers.
