Warner Bros. Animation has released a trailer for Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and the Bold, an upcoming, animated feature that will team the Dark Knight Detective with the Mystery Inc. gang.
You can check it out above.
This is not the first time Batman has teamed up with Scooby and friends; during the show's original run, Adam West and Burt Ward reprised their roles as Batman and Robin, in a pair of hour-long TV movies that were later released on DVD.
This time around, things are a little different in the sense that Batman brings company -- and not just Robin -- in the form of The Question, Black Canary, Aquaman, Detective Chimp and more from the world of the late, lamented animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
James Tucker, a key creative force behind The Brave and the Bold and the supervising producer and co-screenwriter of the just-released Batman vs. Two-Face movie, recently told ComicBook.com that he used Batman '66 as an inspiration for Brave and the Bold, so it is no surprise this match-up tonally fits.
According to IGN, who debuted the trailer, Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold is directed by Jake Castorena. Paul Giacoppo wrote the teleplay, which is based on a story by Tucker.0comments
