Batman: The Long Halloween, the iconic graphic novel by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, will be adapted into a two-part animated feature film. The news comes hot off of the announcements of several new animated films at DC FanDome.
IGN reports that the first part of the film will arrive in the summer of 2021. Based on the release schedules for similar DC animated projects, the second part will likely follow approximately six months later.
