Batman: Under the Red Hood (2010)

I watched the 2010 Warner Bros. animated superhero, direct-to-video, Batman: Under the Red Hood on Netflix DVD. This is the eighth DC Universe Animated Original Movies series and was written by Judd Winick (comic book writer – Batman, Catwoman, Green Arrow, Superman), who also wrote the “Under the Mask” Batman comic run. Jason Todd – the second Robin – is killed by the Joker and comes back as The Red Hood, trying to clean up Gotham in a criminal type way.

Bruce Greenwood is Bruce Wayne/Batman (First Blood, Exotica, Rules of Engagement, The Core, I Robot, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Christopher Pike on J.J Abrams Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness, Super 8, Kingsman:

The Golden Circle, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, Doctor Sleep, Batman: Death in the Family), Jensen Ackles as Jason Todd / Red Hood (Days of Our Lives, Dark Angel, Supernatural, Smallville),

John DiMaggio as Joker (Bender on Futurama, Wreck-it-Ralph, Zootopia, Transformers: The Last Knight, voices on many animated movies and TV),

Neil Patrick Harris as Dick Grayson / Nightwing (Doogie Howser MD, How I Met Your Mother, Starship Troopers, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, American Horror Story: Freak Show),

Jason Isaacs as Ra’s al Ghul (Event Horizon, Armageddon, The Patriot, Black Hawk Down, Resident Evil, Harry Potter movies, Elektra, Grindhouse, Star Trek: Discovery, Capital City),

Wade Williams as Roman Sionis / Black Mask (Erin Brockovich, The Dark Knight Rises, Venom, Prison Break, the Debt Collector on Blacklist) and Jim Piddock as Alfred Pennyworth (Lethal Weapon 2, Independence Day, Austin Powers in Goldmember, The Rutles 2: Can’t Buy Me Lunch).

The story is great, with flashbacks that explain the story and the use of many Batman characters. I enjoyed this video and will give it 5 out of 5. For more information read Wikipedia, IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
