In 1997, Warner Bros. released a direct to home video animated feature that finally connected the Bruce Timm Batman and Superman universes. The Batman Superman Movie beautifully blended the different personalities of both characters and had a very interesting take on their first meeting.
This is the 1998 version of the VHS home video released by Warner Bros. Family Entertainment in a “clam shell” case. The movie was later titled, The Batman Superman Movie: Worldʻs Finest.
The film stars Kevin Conroy (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Tim Daly (Clark Kent/Superman), Dana Delaney (Lois Lane), Mark Hamill (The Joker), Clancy Brown (Lex Luthor), Arleen Sorkin (Harley Quinn), Lisa Edelstein (Mercy Graves), Robert Hastings (Commissioner Jim Gordon), Efrem Zimbalist Jr. (Alfred Pennyworth), and a host of others. The film was produced by Bruce Timm, Paul Dini, and Haven Alexander; written by Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, Stan Berkowitz, Rich Fogel and Steve Gerber; and was directed by Toshihiko Masuda.
