Per BOF’s fine friends at REVENGE OF THE FANS, Warner Bros. Animation/Home Entertainment is working on a 2-part animated film version of the Batman comic book classic, THE LONG HALLOWEEN.
Ever since WB/DC began making these PG-13 animated DC movies, people have asked me if I thought they’ed ever give TLH that treatment. While I always said that I’d be totally on board with such an adaptation, I also thought it would be hard to do since TLH is, um, rather long. However, if they did it without sacrificing much of anything for THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, then I think it’s possible to do it for TLH.
Personally, TLH is in my top 5 favorite Batman comic book stories/graphic novels. I love how some of it influenced Christopher Nolan and company in THE DARK KNIGHT. Though I don’t think it’ll be released this year (it would’ve been officially announced by now if so), here’s hoping that we’ll hear something official from WB soon.
