I’ll confess – I’ve always found Batman way too dour for my superhero tastes (which are, at best, limited anyway).
I much prefer superheroes like Deadpool, Guardians of the Galaxy, Thor in Ragnarok mode and even Iron Man.
But Batman? A little too dark and weighed down by his past, I’m afraid.
Unless of course, he teams up with Scooby Doo and the gang and then I embrace with him all the fervour in the world since who can stay gravely poker-faced around Scooby, Shaggy and all those Scooby snacks?
No one that is! It’s exciting see this team-up, based on an animated series, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which ran from 2008-2011, since it nicely slots into the tongue-in check feel of the show, one that echoed the deliciously camp, cartoony feel of Batman (1966-1968) and even LEGO: Batman.
Throw in the inspired lunacy of Scooby Doo and you have a match made in animated heaven.
As We’ve Got This Covered reports, there will be lot of familiar villainous faces to go with our superhero friends:
“In addition to classic DC villains like Joker, Catwoman, Riddler, Penguin, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn, the movie will also feature several friendly faces, including the likes of Aquaman, Plastic Man, The Question and Martian Manhunter. The crew will also have to contend with Scooby-Doo troublemakers like Ghost Clown, Spooky Space Kook, and Miner 49er.”
All the heroes and villains we love so much from both universes will go into super mystery-solving, villainy-busting mode come 9 January 2018 when the film is released via DVD and digital channels.
