    I remember this movie being announced around April Fool's last year, and I'm glad it's actually real.

    I haven't seen the original show outside of short clips, so this will be my first real exposure to it. James Tucker working on this definitely helps.

    Might Jim Carrey voice the Riddler? Stranger things have happened.

    Perhaps not, but some folks constantly underestimate the likelihood of stars doing a cameo or voice-over role for far less than they would normally accept for a part. So I wouldn't rule it out until we learn about the rest of the cast.

    Jelenic and Tucker on the script should be a good combination :cool:.

    I don't know why, but I can't help but think of it as a kid friendly Killing Joke parody.

    Oh wow, that looks amazing. The narration! The Bat-Poles! Commissioner Gordon and Chief O'Hara! The villains! The death-traps! The fight sequences! Batman being a law-abiding citizen :D.

    Adam West also sounds a lot better in the trailer then he did in the teaser, I feel :).

    I think that might be the first time we've ever seen them actually put their costumes on while sliding down the Bat-Poles :eek:.

    I also think that might be Patton Oswalt as The Penguin...which would be kind of funny after he played Penguin in that College Humor video :p.

    A separate DVD release is confirmed (also November 1) for those who would not want the Blu-ray Combo Pack.

    When they say "DC Classic original movie," is it referring to DC Classic as the line for releasing DVD collections for older, classic, DC shows, or possibly a new line producing original movies based on classic DC properties :)?

    Hopefully the latter.

    I could do with a movie set in the Burton-verse. They'd never get Keaton/Pfeiffer to do it, but I'd be happy with sound-a-likes for that one.

    Blu-ray Bonus Features for Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders detailed here!

    Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders Blu-ray Enhanced Content includes:
    • "Those Dastardly Desperados" featurette - Joker, Catwoman, Penguin and Riddler are impossible not to watch! Those Dastardly Desperados explores how these fiends became more than just antagonists in a Batman story; they became icons in American pop culture.
    • "A Classic Cadre of Voices" featurette - A new talented cast of actors join Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar in Batman: Return of The Caped Crusaders. Go behind the scenes and witness the vocal techniques and timing needed to deliver a classic Bat-Comedy!
    I'm not sure if these are all the bonus features. An episode or two from the live-action show would've been nice to see.
