screen frenzy is excited to present a new clip from the upcoming Warner Bros. Animation movie Batman & Superman: Battle of the Super Sons, in which Green Arrow is left alone on the Justice League’s watch. DC’s latest animated release comes out on Blu-ray and Digital on October 18 and focuses on the relationship between the younger generation. In particular Jonathan Kent (voiced by Shazam!‘s Jack Dylan Glazer) and Damian Wayne (Jack Griffo) must learn to interact with each other against their will after the former learns that his father is Superman. Damian is naturally resistant at first, given his well-documented superiority complex, but that all changes when aliens attack.
Jonathan and Damian are at the heart of Batman & Superman: Battle of the Super Sons, but adults also see their share of the action. Bruce and Clark good-naturedly oversee their children’s interactions until they are confronted by enemies even they can’t handle. Other members of Justice League and some fan-favorite villains also appear in the film, which was directed by DC pundit Matt Peters (Justice League Dark: Apokolips War) and written by Jeremy Adams (de Mortal Kombat Legends franchise). Troy Baker and Travis Willingham agree with Batman and Superman respectively Spongebob SquarepantsTom Kenny doubles as Green Arrow and Penguin.
Green Arrow is the star of screen frenzy‘s exclusive clip from Battle of the Super Sons, which you can view above. Left alone at Watchtower, he barely has time to get into one of his signature jokes before ominous noises set him on edge. The hero immediately gets to work and prepares his trusty bow and arrow, but it looks like the (until now invisible) attacker will take the plunge anyway. The audience wonders if the kids can handle the task when the adults can barely see their enemies coming.
What to expect from Battle of the Super Sons
Given the starfish attacks revealed in the trailer for Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons, it’s no surprise that Starro is one to watch out for in the movie. Darin De Paul voices both the star-shaped alien and Lex Luthor, whose presence suggests the second-generation Justice League will have a lot going for it. Superboy has only recently come to realize his powers, which means that his growing pains will be an additional pain for Robin, whose patience is already running out daily. The joy of the story, of course, is to see the pre-teens put their differences aside to save their parents and the world.
Fans attending New York Comic Con this weekend will have the chance to witness Warner Bros. Animation’s first-ever fully CG animated film. Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons will have its world premiere at 3:30 p.m. ET on Friday on the main stage, followed by a Q&A with the cast and filmmakers. Those who can’t attend can still check out the thrilling DC animated adventure when it comes to home release.
