Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a 2019 direct-to-video animated superhero crossover film.


While touring at Powers Industrial, Barbara Gordon witnesses a powerful generator being stolen by the Foot Clan and also spots four mysterious creatures she believes are metahumans during the robbery. She relays the information to Batman, who fights the Foot Clan at Wayne Enterprises before he is defeated by the ruthless Shredder. The four metahumans Batgirl was referring to are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who have arrived in Gotham to stop Shredder's schemes and find out who his new ally is. After defending Wayne Enterprises from Penguin, the Turtles meet Batman in an alleyway and proceed to fight him as both sides believe the other is working with Shredder. The Turtles are forced to retreat when Batman gains the upper hand on them with his superior fighting prowess.

After researching Batman and his reported locations, Donatello manages to lead the Turtles into the Batcave, where they have a brief scuffle with Robin. After Batman and Batgirl arrive, the Turtles introduce themselves and offer their assistance to the Bat Family when they realize they have the same goal. Robin reveals to the group that Shredder and the Foot Clan is working with Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins. In exchange for the secrets of the Lazarus Pit, Shredder and his subordinates aid Ra's in building a machine that will throw Gotham into chaos by infecting everyone in the city with mutagen combined with the Joker's venom. The two break into Arkham Asylum, where Joker gives them the formula for his venom in exchange for a canister of mutagen.

The Bat Family and the Turtles are alerted of an incident in Arkham Asylum by Commissioner Gordon, where they discover that Joker has used the mutagen to transform all of the inmates and himself into mutants. The heroes face off against the mutated rogues gallery, and Joker injects Batman with the mutagen and venom combination to turn him into an unhinged mutant bat. After defeating Joker, the heroes use Batgirl and Donatello's retro-mutagen to cure Batman and the inmates, but realize that it was all a distraction for Shredder and Ra's al Ghul to acquire the Wayne Enterprises cloud seeder from Penguin.

As Batman recovers in the Batcave, the two teams find out that their worst enemies are launching their machine at the Ace Chemicals plant. Batman initially orders the Turtles to leave Gotham due to their impulsiveness, but Raphael convinces him that they are better off working together and learn from their mistakes. As the two groups advance towards Ace Chemicals, they defeat most of the Foot Clan and League of Assassins forces before confronting Shredder and Ra's al Ghul. Leonardo defeats Ra's al Ghul, Batman defeats Shredder, and Donatello and Michelangelo destroy the machine before it activates. The debris from the ensuing explosion knocks Shredder into a vat of chemicals and detonates the plant. Before the Turtles depart Gotham, Batman treats the heroes to pizza.

In a post-credits scene, Shredder is revealed to have survived the explosion, but now strongly resembles the Joker and starts to laugh maniacally.
