Batman is preparing for a long year of crime in his upcoming animated movie, Batman: The Long Halloween (Part One). The movie, which brings Jenson Ackles back to Gotham as the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne, will feature the Dark Knight early in his crime-fighting career. It follows him as he works with Captain James Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent to stop not only Carmine Falcone, AKA The Roman, but also a series of crimes that happen around holidays.
The Long Halloween follows the 1990’s comic run of the same title and is set to be released in two installments. The film features voice actors like Troy Baker, who has done the voice of Batman in other movies and video games and will have him returning as The Joker in this movie. The movie will also have Naya Rivera voice Selina Kyle/Catwoman. This was one of Rivera’s last roles before her accidental death in July of 2020.
