Batman meets Superman
on 8 April 2016
This is a great animated film, depicting the first meeting between Batman and Superman. In its own way, this is superior to the live-action 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' (2016) movie. This film consists of several episodes - blended together - from the 'Batman: The Animated Series' (season 4) and 'Superman: The Animated Series' (season 3) shows. Both of these shows are amazing.
The plot: the Joker is down on his luck in Gotham City, so he and Harley Quinn break in to an antique's shop and steal an odd looking ornament ... Batman arrives shortly after, and finds a shard of the stolen object. He tests it, and realises it's Kryptonite. Meanwhile the Joker meets up with Lex Luthor, and offers his services - in exchange for big bucks - to kill Superman.
Batman goes to Metropolis, looking for the Joker. In his effort to gain information, Batman beats up various thugs ... and this gets Superman's attention. It's now that the two heroes meet (I won't spoil the surprise).
Anyway, the Joker uses the Kryptonite on Superman ... Batman has to save him. Then the two heroes team up to stop Luthor and the Joker.
It's a lot of fun! Great animation, wonderful voice acting, and a fantastic musical score. This came out in the late 1990's, and I bought it on DVD in 2006. I've watched it several times.
If you own the 3rd season of S:TAS (or intend to buy it) then don't purchase this film, as it's included in the series. Otherwise, I fully recommend this.
