Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders cover art and new trailer
Following the announcement trailer last week, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment have released a full trailer for the upcoming Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders along with cover art for the release. Check out the new Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders cover art and trailer below!
Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders release date is set for October 11 on digital platforms and November 1 on Blu-ray and DVD. The film is described as follows:
It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. This time, the four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. Holy Multiplication Tables!
The release of the film will also include two featurettes:
- “Those Dastardly Desperados” featurette – Joker, Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler are impossible not to watch! Those Dastardly Desperados explores how these fiends became more than just antagonists in a Batman story; they became icons in American pop culture.
- “A Classic Cadre of Voices” featurette – A new talented cast of actors join Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar in Batman: Return of The Caped Crusaders. Go behind the scenes and witness the vocal techniques and timing needed to deliver a classic Bat-Comedy!
Featuring the voices of Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar, the film is directed by Rick Morales (LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash) from a script by Michael Jelenic (Teen Titans Go!) and James Tucker (Justice League vs. Teen Titans).
The original Batman TV series ran for 120 episodes from 1966 to 1968 and also featured Yvonne Craig as Batgirl, Burgess Meredith as the Penguin, and Cesar Romero as the Joker. You can buy the complete series on Blu-ray or DVD by clicking here.
