Warner Bros. has unveiled the official box art for Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons in 4K Ultra HD. This upcoming CG-animated film from DC Comics pits Damian Wayne/Robin and Jonathan Kent/Superboy against their fathers, as well as the rest of the Justice League, who have been enslaved by the evil Starro the Conqueror.
On Tuesday, October 18, Battle of the Super Sons is scheduled to be made available for purchase in 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and digital formats. The 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital combination pack can be purchased for a suggested retail price of $29.99 USD, while the Blu-ray + Digital pack can be purchased for a suggested retail price of $24.99. On the box art for the movie, it makes perfect sense for Robin (Jack Griffo) and Superboy (Jack Dylan Grazer) to be in the foreground, while Batman (Troy Baker) and Superman (Travis Willingham) are in the background.
Matt Peters is in charge of directing Battle of the Super Sons, and Jeremy Adams wrote the film’s script. In addition to Grazer (Shazam! ), Griffo (The Thundermans), Baker (Soul Eater), and Willingham (Camp Camp), the film features the voices of the following actors: Laura Bailey (The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Dawnguard) as Lois Lane; Darin De Paul (Overwatch) as Lex Luthor and Starro; Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) as Green Arrow and Penguin; Zeno Robinson (Pokémon)
“The PG-13 rated Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons begins as 11-year-old Jonathan Kent discovers he has superpowers, thrusting the half-Kryptonian into the complicated world of Super Heroes and Super-Villains — who are now under attack by a malevolent alien force known as Starro!” the synopsis for the movie reads. “Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, DC, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, the film begins as This is how the official synopsis reads. “It’s a race against time as Jonathan must join forces with assassin-turned-Boy-Wonder Damian Wayne to rescue their fathers (Superman and Batman) and save the Earth by becoming the Super Sons they were destined to be!”
The Battle of the Super Sons contains not just the movie film, which runs for 79 minutes, but also a brand-new featurette that is named Rival Sons: Jonathan and Damian. Its official description is, “Legacies collide when Jonathan Kent and Damian Wayne lay aside their differences, forming an unusual alliance to rescue the world,” and this is exactly what happens in the story.
Damian Wayne, the son of Bruce Wayne/Batman and Talia al Ghul, was initially presented as Ibn al Xu’ffasch in the non-canon graphic novel Batman: Son of the Demon, which was published in 1987. Damian Wayne, the son of Bruce Wayne/Batman and Talia al Ghul, was formally presented to the DC Universe in the issue Batman #655 in 2006. This issue was created by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert. After Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Stephanie Brown, Damian quickly became the fifth character in the mainstream DC history to assume the mantle of Robin. Damian succeeded Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Stephanie Brown.
Meanwhile, Dan Jurgens came up with the character of Jonathan “Jon” Kent, who made his debut in the issue of Convergence: Superman #2 published in 2015 as the son of Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman and Lois Lane. Following in the footsteps of Kal-El/Clark Kent himself, as well as Kon-El/Conner Kent, Jon took on the mantle of Superboy, making him the third prominent DC character to do so. In 2021, while his father was away on business, Jon Kent even took over the role of Superman. Late in 2016, in the midst of DC’s Rebirth effort, Jon and Damian came together for the first time as the Super Sons.
