    I'm not going to count Batgirl out of this yet; we haven't seen Alfred or Aunt Harriet show up in either the teaser or the first full trailer and I'm pretty sure that they will both be in this. And a Batgirl/Barbara Gordon appearance in this movie might be limited to a brief cameo. Further cast announcements might be being withheld until the New York Comic-Con.

    If Babs is in this, what about Melissa Gilbert (Batman: The Animated Series) for the part?

    This gives me hope that all the DC animated films will get theatrical screenings via Fathom...but then, both Killing Joke and this one have big hooks (based on famour graphic novel and nostalgia, respectively). Still, I can dream.

    Forgotten Batgirls: Jane Webb Edwards, who voiced Batgirl (and Catwoman) in Filmation's Batman cartoons in the 1960s, passed away in 2010 at the age of 84. Melendy Britt (The New Adventures of Batman, 1977) is still around. She was also the voice of Gran Gran in Avatar: The Last Airbender.

    Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has issued a press release promoting the upcoming Fathom Event screenings of Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders. Two new images are also included.


    Following Record-Breaking ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ Event,
    ‘Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders’ Set for Exclusive One-Time Cinematic Event October 10

    Fathom Events, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment Spotlight
    Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar Voicing Classic Roles

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Travel back to the 1960s as Batman and Robin spring into action when Gotham City is threatened by a quartet of Batman’s most fiendish foes. Audiences will have the opportunity to join all the animated excitement as it unfolds on the big screen for one special day. Fathom Events is once again partnering with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment to bring “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” to movie theaters for three exclusive showings on Monday, October 10 at 2:00 p.m., 7:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. local time, before it comes to Digital HD on October 11 and Blu-ray™ Combo Pack & DVD on November 1.

    Bringing these iconic characters to animated life are Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman). In the new film, Penguin, The Joker, Riddler and Catwoman have combined their wicked talents to hatch a plot so nefarious that the Dynamic Duo will need to go to outer space (and back) to foil their arch enemies and restore order in Gotham City.

    In addition to the film, audiences will view an exclusive pre-screening introduction, and a post-screening preview of “Those Dastardly Desperados,” a featurette that explores how the villains became more than just antagonists in a Batman story – they became icons of American pop culture.

    Tickets for “Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders” can be purchased beginning Friday, September 9, online by visitingwww.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Fans throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy the event in more than 700 select movie theaters. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

    “Working with Warner Bros. on ‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ was a great experience and we knew it was something we wanted to duplicate,” Fathom Events Vice President of Studio Relations Tom Lucas said. “With ‘Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders’ we get to give our audiences another extremely exciting event experience driven by the return of three nostalgic pop culture names to their most memorable roles.”

    “Fans have voiced a strong desire to see DC-centric animated films on the big screen for years, and ‘Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders’ offers another opportunity to entertain our audience with a highly-anticipated cinema event,” said Mary Ellen Thomas, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Vice President, Family & Animation Marketing. “Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is proud to launch our newly branded ‘DC Classics Collection’ films with a Fathom Events presentation.”

    If I was able to attend NYCC this year, I would like to ask Adam West why his version of Batman did not know who Batgirl is in the 1966 tv series

    This hasn't showed up for pre-order on iTunes yet. Is it showing up for anyone else?

    Also, it looks like Cineplex in Canada will do the one-night show too? There are no locations yet! You were right, Otaku! :)

    I know this is a little off-topic, but there are two cool Batman 66 books coming out later this year:

    I know but I want to pre-order the movie. I noticed it is in the U.S. iTunes store but not the Canada one so maybe I just need to be a shade impatient. Hopefully it will pop up soon.

    I wonder if they'll confirm the rest of the cast, everyone outside West, Ward, and Newmar, before or at the panel?

    I'm still really curious to know who's voicing the other villains...
