The latest addition to the highly successful and critically acclaimed pantheon of DC Comics animated films will soon be available to purchase on Digital and Blu-Ray coming this August.
From an original story by animation icon Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) and director Sam Liu (Batman: The Killing Joke) comes a story that sees The Dark Knight and Nightwing teaming up with Harley Quinn to take on a global threat from Harley’s friend and former partner Poison Ivy. Ivy and Jason Woodrue, aka The Floronic Man, have decided to save the planet. Unfortunately, their plan includes taking out most of humanity to do it.
