The anticipation has been building and the day has finally come as Warner Home Video (WHV) helps protect Gotham with the release of Batman: The Brave and the Bold – Volume 2 on DVD. Batman is back for a second time teaming up with Green Arrow, Wildcat, Blue Beetle, Speedy and others to protect the world in this thrilling series put together by the unstoppable tag team of Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics.

Everyone knows that by himself the Caped Crusader is more than any villain can handle, but when he has other heroes from across the DC Universe by his side, there is no chance of taking him down. Though still based in Gotham, Batman frequently finds himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman relies on his stealth, resourcefulness, strength and limitless supply of gadgets to bring justice home.
“Warner Home Video could not be any happier with the continued success of the Batman series and are ecstatic to be bringing the next installment to DVD,” said Amit Desai, WHV Vice President of Family, Animation and Partner Brands Marketing. “Batman: The Brave and the Bold Volume – 2 proves that when superheroes band together, there is no way that they can be taken down, which provides fans with an experience like no other.”

Animation. “Seeing Batman on adventures with Green Arrow, Blue Beetle, Wildcat, Deadman and more has proven to be rewarding for our audience, and we look forward to telling more of these stories.”
