BATMAN: THE LONG HALLOWEEN Two-Part Animated Movie Voice Cast Announced; Jensen Ackles Stars As Bruce Wayne
Supernatural star Jensen Ackles, who also voiced Jason Todd in Batman: Under the Red Hood, will star as the voice of Bruce Wayne in the two-part animated film adaptation of Batman: The Long Halloween.
Jeph Loeb's limited comic book series Batman: The Long Halloween is being adapted into a two-part animated movie, and the Hollywood Reporter has revealed the voice cast for Part One.
Voicing Batman/Bruce Wayne is Jensen Ackles. The Supernatural star previously voiced Jason Todd/Red Hood in 2010's Batman: Under the Red Hood.
The late Naya Rivera is the voice of Catwoman/Selina Kyle. The late Glee star had completed her voice work before she passed away in July.
Others joining the ensemble cast include Josh Duhamel as Harvey Dent, Billy Burke as James Gordon, Titus Welliver as Carmine Falcone, David Dastmalchian as Calendar Man, Troy Baker as Joker, Amy Landecker as Barbara Gordon, Julie Nathanson as Gilda Dent, Jack Quaid as Alberto, Fred Tatasciore as Solomon Grundy, and Alastair Duncan as Alfred.
Superman: Man of Tomorrow directed by Chris Palmer is helming the film with a script that he co-wrote with Tim Sheridan, who was the screenwriter for Man of Tomorrow as well. The two-part direct-to-video film adaptation is based on the 13-issue comic book limited series that was written by Jeph Loeb.
Batman: The Long Halloween takes us back to Batman's early days of fighting crime as he teams with District Attorney Harvey Dent and Captain James Gordon to stop the mysterious killer fittingly named "Holiday," who murders one person each month on a holiday. In addition to trying to discover who Holiday is, Batman is also trying to stop the crime war between Gotham City's Maroni and Falcone families.
Batman: The Long Halloween Part One is expected to release this summer, with Part Two slated for a fall release.
