Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released a clip from Batman: Death in the Family, WBHE’s first-ever venture into interactive storytelling that allows fans to choose where the story goes through an innovative navigation guided by the viewer’s remote control. Central to the extended-length short is an adaptation of Batman: A Death in the Family, the 1988 landmark DC event where fans voted by telephone to determine the story’s ending.
The clip features the stylish opening title sequence to the animated short, which was designed by writer/producer/director Brandon Vietti, and executed by Supervising Technical Director Matt Girardi and his team at Warner Bros. Animation.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, Batman: Death in the Family serves as the anchor for an anthology of 2019-2020 animated shorts – including Sgt. Rock, Adam Strange, Death, and The Phantom Stranger. The set arrives from WBHE on Blu-ray and Digital starting October 13, 2020.
The interactive component is only available on the Blu-ray. The Digital version of Batman: Death in the Family offers four fully-played out linear versions of the short.

New images of Robert Pattinson in The Batman have been released timed with today’s DC Fandome. What stands out, to me, is the image with the cowl off but black makeup is still present. Small details people!
Released during DC Fandome, we get a look at some artwork that’s inspiring the upcoming Flash film.
During panels, it was revealed that Bruce Wayne will be developing a new costume for the character which we can see in this art. Also, Ezra Miller‘s Flash will take his name from Grant Gustin‘s CW version of the character after meeting each other during “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” It was also revealed there are more chances of crossovers between films and television series in the future.
Finally, if you look closely at the art, you can see the Batman pictured isn’t Ben Affleck’s take on the character but is Michael Keaton‘s Batman from the 1989 film.
There’s been lots of speculation as to who is playing who in the upcoming film The Suicide Squad. During DC Fandome, director James Gunn revealed the cast of characters we’ll see soon on the big screen.
DC Fandome is here and with it a brand new trailer for the highly-anticipated Wonder Woman 1984. With it, we get a better sense of the plot and what we can expect as Wonder Woman takes on Max Lord and Cheetah.
