The initial DC Comics line will launch this summer to coincide with the release of The Dark Knight Rises July 20. Products will be available at retailers this summer.
New figures and plush offerings will feature characters including Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, The Joker and Darkseid.
"We are confident that Jakks will bring its trademark creativity to this new toy line inspired by the DC Comics super heroes and super villains," says Karen McTier, executive vice president, domestic licensing and worldwide marketing, WBCP.
"In bringing our own extensive expertise to the development and marketing of novelty figures, large scale figures and plush based on blockbuster action entertainment, Jakks makes a real contribution to the ongoing excitement surrounding The Dark Knight Rises and the broader DC Comics pantheon,” says John Blaney, executive vice president, marketing, CDI. "We are particularly excited to introduce to our boy audience our 30-inch scale, multi-articulated Batman based on The Dark Knight Rises."
