Holy watchalong Batman! We’re so excited about the upcoming release of Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two that we’re collaborating with the lovely folks over at Warner Bros. Home Entertainment to do a watchalong for both parts of the film… and you’re invited!
Inspired by the iconic Nineties DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween 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) 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…
Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) leads an all-star cast as the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne alongside the late Naya Rivera (Glee), Josh Duhamel (Transformers), Billy Burke (Twilight), Katee Sackhoff (The Mandalorian), Titus Welliver (Deadwood), Julie Nathanson (Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay), David Dastmalchian (Dune), Troy Baker (The Last of Us), Amy Landecker (Transparent), Fred Tatasciore (American Dad!), Alyssa Diaz (The Rookie), and Alastair Duncan (Batman Unlimited franchise).
