BURBANK, CA (November 1, 2017) – The ultimate crime-solving combination reunites when Batman
joins the Mystery Inc. gang to catch a gaggle of villains wreaking havoc in Scooby-Doo! & Batman:
The Brave and the Bold. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, the all-new
original film will be distributed January 9, 2018 by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on DVD ($19.98
SRP) and Digital.
Super sleuths Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma join forces with the world’s greatest
detective, Batman, when they discover that villains from both of their respective rogues’ galleries have
also combined efforts to terrorize the city. With Scooby snacks in tow, the crime-fighting teams
encounter classic Batman foes (Joker, Catwoman, Riddler, Penguin, Scarecrow, Poison Ivy, Harley
Quinn) and allies (The Question, Aquaman, Plastic Man, Martian Manhunter) along with a bevy of
fiends from Scooby-Doo lore (Spooky Space Kook, Gentleman Ghost, Miner 49er, Ghost Clown). As
always, you won’t know who the ultimate villain is until those “meddling kids” pull off the mask!
Avid Scooby-Doo fans know this isn’t the first time the Caped Crusader has partnered with Mystery

New Scooby-Doo Movies. Premiering in 1972, the renowned detectives worked to solve crimes together
in the hour-long television movies entitled The Dynamic Scooby-Doo Affair and The Caped Crusader

Lillard (Shaggy) and Kate Micucci (Velma). The guest cast includes Jeff Bennett (Joker), Jeffrey Combs
(The Question), John DiMaggio (Aquaman), Nika Futterman (Catwoman), Nicholas Guest (Martian
Manhunter), John Michael Higgins (The Riddler), Tom Kenny (Penguin, Plastic Man), Kevin Michael
Richardson (Detective Chimp), Tara Strong (Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy) and Fred Tatasciore (Harvey
