DC tries out anime art style with ‘Catwoman: Hunted’ trailer

The recent 2021 DC Fandome has given fans something to get excited about with the release of updates and trailers for most of DC’s media, especially for The Batman with Robert Pattinson, Black adam with the rock, and Peacekeeper with John Cena.

With all the hype that accompanies big DC movie announcements, there are hidden gems that are interesting superhero nerds. One of those gems appears to be a trailer released for an upcoming new animated film titled “Catwoman: Hunted”. Take a look below:

The Warner Bros. Youtube channel provides the synopsis of the film:

“In the all-new original ‘Catwoman: Hunted’, Catwoman’s attempt to steal priceless jewel puts her squarely in the sights of a powerful consortium of villains and the always-ingenious Interpol, not to mention Batwoman. That might be enough to contain it. Or not.”

DC has always been the master of animated films and shows, with shows like Batman Beyond receiving a lot of critical acclaim. However, ‘Catwoman: Hunted’ features an engaging anime art style that is markedly different from other DC anime media.

It’s interesting how more and more Western media has looked at the art style of Japanese anime, with “Catwoman: Hunted” being the perfect example. It seems that the studios have started to notice the many anime fans around the world and seem to want to woo them.

Fans reacted to the unique art style on social media.

The trailer also gives us a glimpse into the voice of Elizabeth Gillies acting as the titular Catwoman, and many would agree that she captured that purring Catwoman vibe.

Fans on social media definitely love Gillies as Catwoman.

The film also features Stephanie Beatriz as Batwoman and Jonathan Banks as Black Mask.

DC rightly chose Japanese director Shinsuke Terasawa, who has worked on Gintama, Lupine the Third, and Yo-kai Watch. The screenplay is directed by Greg Weisman, who worked on Young Justice. The film is expected to be available on Digital and Blu-ray on February 8, 2022.
