It’s going to be a long year for the Dark Knight. Later this month, Warner Bros. Animation will release Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 1, an adaptation of Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale’s fan favorite comic book miniseries. In this tale from Batman’s early days, he teams up with D.A. Harvey Dent and Police Captain Jim Gordon to clean up Gotham City. However, Gotham is rocked by a serial killer who strikes only on holidays. And the so-called Holiday Killer is targeting underworld figures in various crime families.
Warner Bros. Animation has released a new preview clip from the film. In this scene, Batman (Jensen Ackles) and Gordon (Billy Burke) are so desperate for answers that they’ve come to Calendar Man (David Dastmalchian). From inside his cell at Arkham Asylum, Calendar Man has some sound theories about the Holiday Killer. He also correctly guesses that someone close to Gordon and Batman is a suspect.
The late Naya Rivera co-stars in the film as Selina Kyle/Catwoman alongside Josh Duhamel as Harvey Dent, and Titus Welliver as Carmine Falcone.
Additionally, Troy Baker will voice Joker, with Amy Landecker as Barbara Gordon, Julie Nathanson as Gilda Dent, Jack Quaid as Alberto, Fred Tatasciore as Solomon Grundy, and Alastair Duncan as Alfred. Frances Callier, Greg Chun, Gary Leroi Gray, and Jim Pirri will also have roles in the film.
Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 1 will hit digital and Blu-ray on June 22. Warner Bros. is also planning to release Part 2 on Blu-ray on August 10.
