Batman Bad Blood is the ending chapter of the "trilogy" about the new Batman team after the start of the New 52. This video film takes elements from the Battle of the Cowl story-line. In general the story is like this: Bruce is out and the rest of the Bat family has to deal with out his guidance and we see how much of an impact his actions had.
We also get introduced to two lesser known Bats ,Batwoman (not this from 2003 Mystery Woman) and Batwing (not the jet ;)) and I think they were good, considering what happen later with BvS and The Killing Joke. Yea let's leave that behind for the best. As for the plot is OK, not great. If you have seen enough action thrillers you will definitely recognize it and be bother by that. Never the less it works for the flick so I will give it a pass.
As for the voice casting and animation, we get a decent job and as I have wrote about it in Son of Batman, they have some big shoes to fill and the whole team does its best every time.
And now for the future Batman film:
I don't want to watch Bruce any longer. It isn't that I don't like Batman, far from it, but this film was a proof that the rest of the Bat-Family can carry a film with out Batman and they have to get their own time in the spotlight ,for example I want a solo Nightwing movie and or see the famous black sheep of them Red Hood either in a stand alone project or in contrast with Nightwing.
For least be honest comic comrades the Dark Knight has get more than enough screen time in both films, TV series, video movies and video-games. It has been almost twenty years since the last appearance of member of the Bat-Family and the was in the infamous Batman and Robin! Since 2005 when Batman returned to the big screen we had ourselves full with him, but close to nothing from the rest of the Bats.
If anything is to be said about this recent animated trilogy is that is time to see what the rest of the members of the House of Bats has to offer. As for the Bruce himself put him in supporting roles or small cameos, that's more than enough nowadays!
And this project of mine has ended.. WOW. I had my full of the Caped Crusader for good for the rest of the year. My hope is that Warner Brother CEO read this or other reports or watch video on Youtube about the Knight of Gotham and DO IT, just do it!
