Reports have recently surfaced that indicate an animated film adaptation of Jeph Loeb’s ‘The Long Halloween’ is on the way. Originally published as a mini-series from 1996-1997, ‘The Long Halloween’ has become a revered story among Batman fans as it set the tone for what many come to expect from the Dark Knight. Along with detailing the origins of Two-Face (formerly Harvey Dent), the story follows Batman as he races to stop Holiday, a villain who only kills on holidays (Christmas, Halloween, Valentine’s Day, etc.).
According to the report, Batman: The Long Halloween will be split into two parts and will not be a part of the animated DC Universe. Rather, like Batman: The Killing Joke (2016) before it, this pair of films would exist as a standalone. There is also a list of names that are possibly working on this film and if it’s true this could be the best adaptation yet. Possible voice actors include: Troy Baker (whose voiced Batman AND The Joker in the past); Jensen Ackles (of Supernatural fame); Naya Rivera; Titus Welliver and David Dastmalchian.
Keep in mind this has not been officially announced and it’s unknown when this film will become official. Hopefully we’ll know before long when Batman: The Long Halloween is happening. What do you think of this rumor? Can a film do this legendary story justice? Let us know what you think!
