Next entry in the DC Universe movie series comes to Blu-ray and Digital June 22; special bonus features include ‘The Losers’ DC Showcase animated short.
From Warner Bros. Animation, DC, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment comes Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One, the next entry in the popular DC Universe Movie series. The feature-length film, which will be accompanied by the latest DC Showcase animated short, The Losers, is set for release on Digital and Blu-ray on June 22, 2021.
The Blu-ray release features a Blu-ray disc with hi-definition and digital versions of the movie. Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Pack in 2022 as a combined presentation of the film with Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two.
Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, the story 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) 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 are also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern.
Jensen Ackles (Supernatural, Smallville) returns to the DC Universe Movies as the title character of Batman/Bruce Wayne. The late Naya Rivera (Glee), gives one of her final performances as Catwoman/Selina Kyle. The all-star cast includes Josh Duhamel (Transformers, Las Vegas) as Harvey Dent; Billy Burke (Twilight, Revolution, Zoo) as James Gordon; Titus Welliver (Bosch, Deadwood, The Town) as Carmine Falcone; David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad, Ant-Man, Dune, The Dark Knight) as Calendar Man; Troy Baker (The Last of Us, Batman: Arkham Knight) as Joker; Amy Landecker (Your Honor, Transparent) as Barbara Gordon; Julie Nathanson (Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay) as Gilda Dent; Jack Quaid (The Boys, The Hunger Games) as Alberto; Fred Tatasciore (American Dad!, Family Guy) as Solomon Grundy; Jim Pirri (World of Warcraft franchise) as Sal Maroni; and Alastair Duncan (The Batman, Batman Unlimited franchise) as Alfred. Additional voices provided by Frances Callier, Greg Chun, and Gary Leroi Gray.
Directed by Chris Palmer (Superman: Man of Tomorrow) with a screenplay by Tim Sheridan (Reign of the Supermen, Superman: Man of Tomorrow). Producers are Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) and Kimberly S. Moreau (Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Butch Lukic (Justice Society: World War II, Superman: Man of Tomorrow) is supervising producer. Executive producers are Michael Uslan and Sam Register.
