Here’s the official word on Bad Blood, directly from Warner Bros:
The mysterious disappearance of Batman, coupled with the emergence of powerful and malevolent new villains in Gotham City, force Nightwing (voice of Sean Maher) and Robin (Stuart Allan) to take crime-fighting into their own hands – while simultaneously searching for their missing leader. They’re not alone for long. New super heroes Batwoman (Yvonne Strahovski) and Batwing (Gaius Charles) – each armed with her/his own sensibilities, physical abilities and crime-fighting tools – arrive in Gotham to assist in the cause. As this new “family” strives to find its own dynamic, chilling clues lead the group to suspect the Dark Knight may have gone over to the dark side. It’s up to the entire Bat team to uncover the truth before Gotham City falls prey to its greatest threat yet.
As the voice of Batman, Jason O’Mara (Complications, Terra Nova) leads a celebrity-laden cast that includes Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, 24, The Astronauts Wives Club) as Batwoman/Katherine Kane, Morena Baccarin (Homeland, Gotham) as Talia al Ghul, Sean Maher (Firefly, Serenity, Much Ado About Nothing) as Nightwing, Gaius Charles (Grey’s Anatomy, Friday Night Lights) as Batwing, Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters) as Lucius Fox, Stuart Allan (Batman vs. Robin) as Robin/Damian Wayne, and Travis Willingham (LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite!) as The Heretic. The Batman: Bad Blood filmmaking team includes director Jay Oliva, writer J.M. DeMatteis, supervising producer James Tucker and character designer Phil Bourassa.
Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Batman: Bad Blood will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on February 2, 2016.
