It is said DC Comics and Warner Bros. are planning to turn the classic story of Batman The Long Halloween into a two-part animated film. A fantastic cast of actors and actors was linked to the project, although no casting was officially announced at this time.
The long Halloween, released in 1996 with a script by Jeph Loeb and the art of Tim Sale, is considered by many to be one of the best Batman stories ever written. During the first two years of Bruce Wayne’s vigil as Batman, the story tells how he first worked with District Attorney Harvey Dent and GCPD Captain James Gordon to fight corruption in the local government and mafia. Gotham The story details the emergence of the first wave of super villains that would dominate the underground world of the city and the fall of the five families that led the organized crime in Gotham City. All of this comes from the mystery of a serial killer named Holiday, who starts killing important mafia members on important holidays.
Revenge of the Fans reports that DC Films is at an early stage of adapting classical history to animation and experiences life as a two-part movie. This is similar to Warner Bros. Animation with Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, another classic Batman movie that became a two-part animated film in 2012.
The report continues to identify some of the actors involved in the project and speculates on who could be selected. Most of the aforementioned actors have already gained experience with Warner Bros. Animation in other DC Films projects, but none of them are associated with the DC Animated Cinematic Universe. This suggests that The Long Halloween will be an independent film such as The Killing Joke and the upcoming adaptation of Hush.
The most interesting name is that of Troy Baker, an experienced speaker who has expressed both Batman and The Joker in earlier projects. Jensen Ackles, known as Dean Winchester in Supernatural, is recommended as a natural choice for Harvey Dent. Naya Rivera of Glee is also mentioned as a possible Catwoman. The rest of the cast is complemented by a list of outstanding actors, including Titus Welliver, Jim Pirri, Katee Sackhoff, David Dastmalchian, Amy Landecker, Fred Tatasciore and Matthew Gray Gubler.
If necessary, this report suggests that DC Comics and Warner Bros. are doing everything they can to make The Long Halloween the adaptation it deserves as one of the most beloved Batman stories of all time. It remains to be seen how well the animation team can mimic the signature style of Tim Sale. It’s also unclear how fast we expect to see the first half of the movie, but an expected release date for 2020 is likely given the full list of animated releases that DC Films plans to release in 2019.
