So it carried over to the videogames. I wouldn't be surprised if WB are the ones who suggested to Ed Boon and Netherrealm studios to use the TMNT.
Also WB owns the rights to the 4 TMNT movies they made.

This obviosly, and I really hope they see this as an oportunity to study if the TMNT property is worth anything to hopefully create a TMNT gaming equivalent of the Arkham series, not exactly in style but more in moving the IP away from mediocrity and into a best selling gaming franchise.

Most likely.
Former sound designer of NRS, said in interview, that guest characters are specifically chosen by WB.

It's funny, as a kid I always wanted the TMNT to crossover with Batman but I knew it would never happen in a million years. At the time I didn't understand superheroes or comics were all owned by different companies, and thus it was unlikely for shows to crossover unless they were owned by the same IP holder.

Who would have thought 20+ years later the TMNT would have three official crossovers with Batman in comics, and now appear in a DC videogame. Even just a few years ago saying such a thing would have been laughable and you'd have people tell you to stop reading crappy fanfiction.

I guess it's true what they say, sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. Or good things come to those who wait. Or sometimes wishes do come true. What goes around comes around.

Apparently the Justice League Power Rangers crossover didn't sell very well, maybe if it had we'd gotten Power Rangers intead

Well, I ended up picking up the game because of the announcement as well ... so hopefully they see an increase of sales following the trailer drop for sure.

Holy crap ... that would be incredible.

I'm wondering since there was such a desire for Spawn that he may end up in the next Mortal Kombat? I'd be cool with him either in Injustice or MK, but honestly I love the idea that horror franchise characters are the ones that show up in the MK universe.
