One of the most highly-lauded Batman story arcs makes its animated movie debut on June 22, with the home video release of The Long Halloween - Part One.
Part Two will follow in due course.
"Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen (Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent) in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family.
But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that, instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer."Supernatural star Jensen Ackles returns to the Batverse, having voiced Jason Todd/The Red Hood, in Under The Red Hood, now prompted to voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman.
The late Naya Riveria (of Glee fame) gives voice to Catwoman/Selina Kyle.
Why more Batman, when DC has such a broad and rich portfolio of characters, I hear you ask. Because Batman sells, and I rather suspect that Warner Bros makes a whole heap more cash from these sales than they do from just the comics.
