Batman: The Long Halloween

Warner Bros. has released a trailer for the upcoming 2-part animated adaptation of DC Comics' Batman: The Long Halloween (affiliate link). The original 13-issue comic book series inspired The Dark Knight Trilogy and The Batman.

The first trailer premiered on IGN.

Read the official synopsis:

"Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One 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. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer."

Batman: The Long Halloween features the voice talents of Jensen Ackles (Supernatural) as Batman, Naya Rivera (Glee) as Catwoman, Josh Duhamel (Transformers) as Harvey Dent, Billy Burke (Most Dangerous Game) as James Gordon, Titus Welliver (Bosch) as Carmine Falcone, David Dastmalchiann (The Suicide Squad) as Calendar Man, Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham Origins) as Joker, Amy Landecker (Your Honor) as Barbara Gordon, Julie Nathanson (Elena of Avalor) as Gilda Dent, Jack Quaid (Star Trek: Lower Decks) as Alberto, Fred Tatasciore (Devil May Care) as Solomon Grundy and Alastair Duncan (Spider-Man) as Alfred. Also featuring are Frances Callier, Greg Chun, Gary Leroi Gray and Jim Pirri.
