Warner Bros. Animation has revealed official stills from the next animated title in the DC Universe Movies slate: Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One, due on Digital and Blu-ray on June 22 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The new images depict the movie’s core trio of crimefighters and their allies, on the hunt for the mysterious Holiday Killer. The feature-length caper is inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale.
When a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman (voiced by Jensen Ackles), to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen – Police Captain James Gordan (Billy Burke) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Josh Duhamel) – 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.
