In Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, Batman and Robin team-up once again in total '60s campy style to take down Penguin, The Joker, Riddler, and Catwoman. Their adventure sends them into outer space and down into the depths of Gotham.
The full-length animated feature will bring back Adam West to voice Batman, Burt Ward as Robin, and Julie Newmar as Catwoman.
An announcement today confirmed that the movie will be a limited theatrical release, hopefully coming to a theater near you. After the box office success of Batman:The Killing Joke, Fathom Events is once again teaming up with WB and DC Entertainment to bring Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders to theaters for three exclusive showings on Monday, October 10 at 2:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.
You can watch the trailer here:
Along with the film, audiences will get an in-depth look at how Batman villains became American pop culture icons in a new featurette called Those Dastardly Desperados.
This may be the beginning of a new trend of showing DCAU movies in theaters before they release on home video. If interest is comparable to Batman: The Killing Joke, we'll probably end up seeing a second night added as well.
The movie hits digital HD on October 11, 2016, and comes to Blu-ray and DVD November 1, 2016.
