Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has released another brand new clip from DC Showcase – Batman: Death In The Family. The interactive film debuts today from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-Ray and Digital, and you can find our review here. This interactive story allows viewers to choose and change directions of the story in retelling the landmark DC Comics event. 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.
Included here is an all-new clip that finds Jason Todd – as Red Robin – coming face to face to face with Two-Face in one of the branches of this interactive animated short. Viincent Martella (Phineas & Ferb) voices Jason Todd, and Gary Cole (Veep) voices Two-Face.
Produced, directed and written by Brandon Vietti, Batman: Death in the Family offers an inventive take on the long-demanded story. In the new animated presentation, the infamous murder of Batman protégé Jason Todd will be undone, and the destinies of Batman, Robin and The Joker will play out in shocking new ways as viewers make multiple choices to control the story. And while Batman: Under the Red Hood provides a baseline, the story also branches in new directions and features several characters previously unseen in the original film. Bruce Greenwood (The Resident, Star Trek, iRobot), Vincent Martella (Phineas and Ferb) and John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time) reprise their Batman: Under The Red Hood roles of Batman, young Jason Todd and The Joker, respectively. Other featured voices are Zehra Fazal (Young Justice) as Talia al Ghul and Gary Cole (Veep) as Two-Face and James Gordon.
Now is also the time to view the Warner Bros. Home Entertainment hosted panel for Batman: Death in the Family at New York Comic-Con this past Saturday. Featured on the panel was producer/director/writer Brandon Vietti (“Batman: Under the Red Hood,” “Young Justice”) and actors Bruce Greenwood (“The Resident,” :Star Trek,” “iRobot”), Vincent Martella (“Phineas and Ferb,” “Everybody Hates Chris”) and Zehra Fazal (“Young Justice”). Tiffany Smith (DC Daily) served as moderator.
