Batman vs. Robin BATMAN: WHAT TO expect IN 2021!

Batman vs. Robin is a sequel of sorts to child of Batman, in that Damian is struggling with what it implies to be Batman’s son. only there’s likewise the Court of Owls interfering, as Talon provides Robin a possibility to be his heir as part of a devious scheme, as described in the film plot description. Damian is broken between his training by Ra’s al Ghul to be ruthless as well as his in some cases severe treatment by his dad for his own good.

Frankly, I found the film tedious, predictable, overly violent, as well as lacking in subtlety. I don’t care for Jason O’Mara as Batman, because I find his voice performance missing depth, as well as the style for Damian (Stuart Allan) has too huge a head, in my opinion.

But I’m not the audience for these original animated films. I wasn’t a fan of the source material, I’ve seen much more Batman stories than I need to already, as well as I choose discussion over fighting, while the creators of these films like their punch-up visuals. Clearly, other people — probably teens, given the movie’s PG-13 rating — do like these generic hour-and-20-minute battles, probably for the thrill of seeing much more stories with their favorite heroes. I am only curious about them these days for the extras, since in some cases there’s some interesting information in the talking-head segments.

Another indicator that the films are aiming for the devoted fan: This film starts a series of collector limited edition packaging that comes with a figurine (no moving parts). It’s pretty great looking.

The disc included is the same as the regular Blu-ray edition — both come with an extra DVD version as well as an UltraViolet copy.

Here’s a clip of Robin as well as Talon (Jeremy Sisto, doing a fantastic job) combating together, demonstrating the thematic dispute of the film:

And Talon’s recruitment efforts:

Damian likewise takes on Nightwing (Sean Maher), who’s kind of babysitting him one night:

So, once you get past Robin as well as Batman yelling at as well as misunderstanding each other as well as the various battles while they suggest about whether or not you ought to kill your opponents — oh, as well as let me not forget to mention the creepiest opening sequence I have ever seen in animation, with Robin combating the Dollmaker, voiced by Al Yankovic — what else is on the disc?

“Gotham City’s Secret: The Mythic Court of Owls” is a half-hour on where the idea came from, with Scott Snyder discussing his love for Gotham as a character. Greg Capullo, artist on the original story, likewise participates, which is a enjoyable surprise. Personally, I don’t think the Court of Owls is an old sufficient idea to deserve this long an exploration of their meaning, however idealistically, it’s good to see someone doing something new with the Bat-mythos instead of just introducing new takes on old villains. as well as the discussion of the symbolism of owls was interesting. By the end of the piece, they’d won me over to appreciating the depth of the original story.

“The Talons of the Owls” is 14 minutes about the enforcers of the court, the Talons “doing the filthy work for the intellectuals”. In addition to the DCU cartoon episodes included with the movie, there’s likewise a Merrie Melodies “Super-Rabbit”. The commentary for the film is by Mike Carlin, director Jay Olivia, as well as James Tucker (supervising producer of the animation line).

High point for me was an 11-minute sneak peek at the next movie, Justice League: Gods & Monsters, an alternate-universe take on the superteam they’re comparing to the old comic Elseworlds. Mike Carlin promises “If you know the DC universe, it’s going to be Easter egg time for an hour as well as a half,” which sounds good to me. Plus, it’s produced by Bruce Timm from his original concept.

And now, we’ll end with a photo gallery. (The studio offered a review copy.)
