I am so on board for this flick from DC Animated. Now that we get a full trailer, we also get a look at the rogues gallery causing havoc in Gotham City. I’m pleased to say the least. Glad they are pulling out all the stops for this timeless version of the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder.
Here’s the synopsis…like you need it to be excited.
“It’s back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes – Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman. This time, the four Super-Villains have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City. It’s a truly fantastic adventure that will pit good against evil, good against good, evil against evil … and feature two words that exponentially raise the stakes for both sides: Replicator Ray. Holy Multiplication Tables!”
Here’s the groovy trailer…
Looks great! Takes me back to my childhood before we had Keaton as the Dark Knight, before Nolan picked up a camera, and before Affleck could drive.
I’m also very pleased to see the use of POWs and BIFFs!!
Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders stars Adam West, Burt Ward, and Julie Newmar as Catwoman. The flick will be available on Digital HD on October 11, 2016 and on DVD and Blu-ray on November 1, 2016.
