Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is going all out a New York City Comic Con with the world premiere of “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” and a first look at the animated “Justice League Dark.”
The screening of “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” will open the convention Thursday, Oct. 6, at 5:30 p.m., followed by a Q&A moderated by producer Sam Register featuring star Adam West, director Rick Morales and co-writers/producers Michael Jelenic and James Tucker.
Things will heat up even more Saturday afternoon with the first official footage from “Justice League Dark” during a panel with voice stars Matt Ryan (Constantine) and Jason O’Mara (Batman), who will join Tucker, director Jay Oliva and character designer Phil Bourassa.
“Justice League Dark” will be the first onscreen appearance of the team, which also includes Zatanna, Deadman and Swamp Thing. Created by Peter Milligan and Mikel Janin, “Justice League Dark” launched in 2011 as part of the New 52, and brought together the DC Universe's supernatural heroes to tackle problems outside the expertise of the traditional Justice League.
Both presentations will take place on the Main Stage at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
Based on the iconic 1966 television series, “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” reunites series stars Adam West and Burt Ward as the voices of Batman and Robin, and Julie Newmar as Catwoman. The movie will receive a one-day limited theatrical release on Oct. 10, and will be available to own on Digital HD the next day. The DVD and Blu-ray versions hit the shelves on Nov. 1.
“Justice League Dark” is slated or an early 2017 release.
