The first official trailer for Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One has been released. The upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie is an adaptation of the 13-issue limited comic book series that was originally published by DC Comics in the mid-nineties.
Oh yeah, this looks pretty good. And after seeing that trailer, I’m even more sure that this will also be set in the same universe that began with Superman: Man of Tomorrow. I voiced that theory the other day when the official voice cast was announced and now I’m thinking I may be correct. It helps when the team behind Man of Tomorrow is also behind this adaptation.
Part One had been rated PG-13 while Part Two has earned an R-rating. The R-rating definitely piques my interest, so I’m guessing Part One will be doing a lot of setup for a very bloody conclusion. Either way, I’m hoping to read the collected graphic novel before the two-parter hits home video this summer.
Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One hits home video this spring. Part Two is set to come out in the fall.
What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
