November 11 will see the release of a 25th anniversary Blu-ray edition of Tim Burton's Batman, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced today.

The two-disc special edition will also include Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster -- a look at the phenomenal marketing, extensive merchandising and franchise foresight that set the template for the next 25 years of tentpole pictures.

The film was released when Batman was fifty years old, and its reissue is part of DC Entertainment's year-long 75th anniversary celebration. Yesterday, the studio released Batman: Assault on Arkham, an animated feature film set in the world of the Batman: Arkham video game franchise, as part of that same program. WBHE will also feature the highly anticipated release of the 1960s Batman: The Complete Television Series for the first time ever.

There is a new commemorative 75th anniversary Batman logo and an exclusive "Cape/Cowl/Create" art exhibit, featuring 20 contemporary artists' interpretations of The Dark Knight's iconic cowl headpiece and cape from the new Batman: Arkham Knight video game. Various other events are taking place throughout the year.

The studio has also taken great pains to paint the production of Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice as part of the anniversary festivities.

"Batman is an incredibly important property with multi-generational appeal across all of the Studio's businesses, and we're proud to celebrate this milestone anniversary," said Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara back in March. "From billion-dollar blockbuster films to TV, home entertainment, video games and consumer products, The Dark Knight continues to resonate with audiences worldwide and rightfully deserves his place as a global pop culture icon for the ages."
