Is a BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN animated movie on the way

Batman: The Long Halloween (DC Comics)

In 1996 writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale began one of Batman’s most famous tales. The Long Halloween has become a legendary entry in to the DC Comics pantheon and a new rumour suggests it will be receiving an animated adaption in the near future.

Revenge of the Fans is reporting that DC and Warner Bros. animation are in the process of developing a two-part animated adaption for release in late 2019 or 2020.

It’s understood by the site that voice actors Troy Baker, Jensen Ackles, Naya Rivera, Titus Welliver and David Dastmalchian are all involved with the project. There is no word on who the actors will be portraying in the movies as yet.

Barker has played both Batman and Joker in the past so expect him to reprise one of those two roles.

The Long Halloween is described by DC as:

Taking place during Batman’s early days of crime-fighting, this new edition of the classic mystery tells the story of a mysterious killer who murders his prey only on holidays. Working with District Attorney Harvey Dent and Lieutenant James Gordon, Batman races against the clock as he tries to discover who Holiday is before he claims his next victim each month. A mystery that has the reader continually guessing the identity of the killer, this story also ties into the events that transform Harvey Dent into Batman’s deadly enemy, Two-Face.
