BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN Two-Part Animated Feature Reportedly In The Works

Fans have been hoping to see an animated adaptation of Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's Batman: The Long Halloween for years, and a new report indicates that a two-part take is now in the works. Check it out...

Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale's The Long Halloween is still considered one of the greatest Batman stories of all time, and now it looks like an animated take on the classic tale is finally in the works.

According to Revenge of the Fans, DC is in the process of developing a two-part adaptation Loeb's story, which takes place during the early days of The Dark Knight's stint as Gotham's protector and focuses on his efforts to bring down the mysterious Holiday Killer.

The site has also revealed the main cast members, although they're not certain which characters they'll be providing the voices for: Troy Baker, Jensen Ackles, Naya Rivera, Titus Welliver and David Dastmalchian.

Baker has voiced both Batman and The Joker in the past so it's a safe bet he'll be reprising one of those roles, but there rest are open for speculation.

We'll have to take this as a rumor for the time being, but let's hope it turns out to be on the level and we get some kind of official announcement soon. In the meantime, let us know what you make of this down below. We also have a synopsis of the comic arc for those unfamiliar with the story.

“Christmas. St. Patrick’s Day. Easter. As the calendar’s days stack up, so do the bodies littered in the streets of Gotham City. A murderer is loose, killing only on holidays. The only man that can stop this fiend? The Dark Knight. In a mystery taking place during Batman’s early days of crime fighting, Batman: The Long Halloween is one of the greatest Dark Knight stories ever told.

Working with District Attorney Harvey Dent and Lieutenant James Gordon, Batman races against the calendar as he tries to discover who Holiday is before he claims his next victim each month. A mystery that has the reader continually guessing the identity of the killer, this story also ties into the events that transform Harvey Dent into Batman’s deadly enemy, Two-Face.“
