The Long Halloween is one of the best Batman stories we’ve seen published.
Yes, I know, many Batman stories have a claim to that particular fame, but it does not disqualify this tale from Jeph Loeb.
DC are planning a digital and a Blu-ray release on June 22nd.
Jensen Ackles is Batman. Ackles, known for his starring role in Supernatural, isn’t new to Gotham. He voiced Red Hood in 2010’s “Batman Under the Red Hood”.
Naya Rivera, who passed away in 2020, known for her Glee role is Catwoman, while Josh Duhamel (Transformers) is Harvey Dent.
DC describe the feature-length animation;
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.
Part one is slated for release later this year and will carry a PG-13 rating. Watch what you start, though, as Part two is reported to have an R rating. Part two is due out at the end of the year.
