Warner Bros. Animation, DC, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are back with a new Batman movie, an adaptation of one of the most critically acclaimed Batman graphic novels of all time – Batman: The Long Halloween.
Written by Tim Sheridan and directed by Chris Palmer, the two-part animation is adapted from the 13-issue limited comic series, The Long Halloween, written back in 1996 by Jeph Loeb and illustrated by Tim Sale.
The story continues from Batman: Year One and revolves around Batman, Detective Gordon and Harvey Dent working together to take on the Falcone crime family and hunt down the serial murderer known as the Holiday Killer. The comics also focused on establishing the major villains in Gotham City and from the looks of the trailer, we can expect to see a lot of major characters such as Joker, Catwoman and Solomon Gundry in the movie.
Jensen Ackles (Supernatural, Batman: Under the Red Hood) will be taking on the role of Batman this time after voicing Jason Todd in Batman: Under the Red Hood while Naya Rivera will be playing Catwoman and Troy Bakey as the Joker.
