The animated film is based on the limited series comic of the same name, which ran for 13 issues from 1996 to 1997. From writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale, The Long Halloween is set early in Batman’s career and a few months after the Year One comic and examines an entire year of Batman as a crime fighter, as he struggles to find a mysterious killer, known as Holiday, who strikes once a month.
The report states that the late Naya Rivera, who tragically passed away last year, had completed her voice work for the Selina Kyle aka Catwoman, so expect her to appear in part two. Jesen Ackles will be voicing Batman, Josh Duhamel will be voicing Harvey Dent, Billy Burke will be voicing James Gordon, Titus Welliver will be voicing Carmine Falcone, David Dastmalchian will be voicing Calendar Man, Troy Baker will be voicing Joker, Amy Landecker will be voicing Barbara Gordon, Julie Nathanson will be voicing Gilda Dent, Jack Quaid will be voicing Alberto, Fred Tatasciore will be voicing Solomon Grundy and Alastair Duncan will be voicing Alfred.
Additional voice work on the animated film will be performed by Frances Callier, Greg Chun, Gary Leroi Gray and Jim Pirri. Chris Palmer, who directed Superman: Man of Tomorrow, will be helming the film, with Tim Sheridan penning the adapted screenplay. Batman: The Long Halloween Part One is produced by Jim Krieg and Kimberly S. Moreau, Butch Lukic serving as supervising producer and Michael Usland and Sam Register serving as executive producers.
