In the following clip from Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two, Sofia Falcone (Laila Berzins) makes a bid to join her father, Carmine (Titus Welliver), in the family business. His response to her would sound like wisdom if not for the incredibly dismissive thing he does before leaving the room. Also, whose pointed hat is that in Carmine’s office?
As part two of the DC Universe Animated adaptation of Batman: The Long Halloween by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Part 2 takes us from (at least) Father’s Day to the end of the year and the explosive unraveling of the Holiday Murders. It will also see mob bosses like Falcone and Sal Maroni dethroned by costumed villains like the Joker (Troy Baker). Will the combined talents of the Batman (Jensen Ackles), Jim Gordon (Billy Burke), and Harvey Dent (Josh Duhamel) be able to contain the chaos or will one of them fall to the madness?
If you read the comic, you know the answer. It is, nonetheless, interesting to see it dramatized as an animated film.
Behind the camera, Superman: Man of Tomorrow‘s Chris Palmer directs from a script by Reign of the Supermen and Superman: Man of Tomorrow‘s Tim Sheridan. Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) and Sheridan serve as producers while Butch Lukic (Justice Society: World War II, Superman: Man of Tomorrow) is the supervising producer. Michael Uslan and Sam Register serve as executive producers.
Both the digital and disc versions come with the latest DC Showcase short, Blue Beetle, which sees Ted Kord — alias the Blue Beetle — Captain Atom, The Question, and Nightshade battle that “nefarious finagler of feelings,” Doctor Spectro, in a story inspired by 1960s Saturday morning cartoons. Other features include an advanced look at Injustice, the next DC Universe Animated movie; featurettes looking back at Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: Part 2 and Batman: Hush; and the two-part debut of Two-Face on Batman: The Animated Series — one of the program’s finest hours.
Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 2 hits digital on July 27th and Blu-ray on August 10th.
