Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released the first clip from Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One, the next title from the 2021 DC Universe Movie line-up. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the animated feature will be available on Digital and Blu-ray starting June 22, 2021. Based on the classic DC Comics storyline of the same name, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One is the first of a two-part adaptation, with the concluding chapter coming Summer 2021. Click on the player below to view the clip.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment describes the animated feature as follows:
Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen (Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent) in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that, instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer.

The studio revealed news of the upcoming animated movie through press details for Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two, which lists Injustice as an upcoming DC Animated Movie release.

Interactive Entertainment. Press details can be found below:
Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two Special Features – Blu-ray and Digital Sneak Peek at the Next DC Animated Movie, Injustice: Sides are chosen and battle lines are drawn as the Earth’s greatest heroes go to war…with each other.
2013’s Injustice: Gods Among Us and its 2017 sequel, Injustice 2, take place in an alternate universe where Superman turns into a dictator and rules the world after The Joker makes him mistakenly kill his wife Lois and their unborn child. Both installments of the video game franchise were major hits for Warner Bros., sparking a host of spin-off products, including comic books and soundtracks. Notably, the video game series includes voice work by Kevin Conroy, George Newbern, Susan Eisenberg, and Phil LaMarr, among other actors from DC Animated Universe projects. A third Injustice video game is reportedly in the works. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is expected to formally announce Injustice this summer, followed by a release in Fall/Late 2021.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment described the original Injustice: Gods Among Us video game as follows:
What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? From the indomitable DC Comics and the makers of the definitive fighting game franchise Mortal Kombat comes Injustice: Gods Among Us, a bold fighting game featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons. Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale. A deep, original story compliments the fighting action that pits many of the great heroes and villains from the DC universe against each other — Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others lose their allegiances and fight for Injustice!

Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part Two continues as the Holiday Killer is still at large and, with Bruce Wayne under the spell of the venomous Poison Ivy, Batman is nowhere to be found. Liberated by an unlikely ally, Bruce quickly uncovers the real culprit: Poison Ivy’s employer Carmine Falcone. The Roman, his ranks decimated by Holiday and his business spinning out of control, has been forced to bring on less desirable partners – Gotham City’s rogues’ gallery. In the meantime, Harvey Dent is confronting battles on two fronts: attempting to end the mob war while also dealing with a strained marriage. And, after an attack that leaves Harvey hideously disfigured, the District Attorney unleashes the duality of his psyche that he’s strived his entire life to suppress. Now, as Two-Face, Dent decides to take the law into his own hands and deliver judgment to those who’ve wronged him, his family and all of Gotham. Ultimately, the Dark Knight must put together the tragic pieces that converged to create Two-Face, the Holiday Killer, Batman and Gotham City itself.
