Earlier this month, we brought you the announcement that “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders”, an animated version of the 1960s iteration of Batman, will be released on November 1st.
Well, it looks like there was a pretty big reveal out of this year’s New York Comic Con, as a sequel to that was announced for release next year, with a surprising cast member. The news was broken at the close of the “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” panel & world premiere, when Warner Bros. Animation president Sam Register played a teaser video (of sorts), and also told the audience that the sequel’s villain would be someone who had never appeared in the classic TV series.
Register showed a silhouette which looked a lot like Two-Face, which then faded to reveal a video with…WILLIAM SHATNER. In the vid, the actor broke the news that the sequel to “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” would be released in 2017, it would be called “Batman vs. Two-Face”, and that he himself would be voicing the titular villain!
While there is no release date set for the film, it’s a good bet that “Batman vs. Two-Face” will be the next DC Comics animated feature following the highly anticipated “Justice League Dark”.
Are you pleased by this casting, dear readers? What do you hope to see from the sequel? What else are you hoping to hear from NYCC? Let us know!
