To help mark Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC Entertainment’s milestone 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ popular Batman character, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition, a new Blu-ray edition debuting November 11, 2014 (at $24.98 SRP) in the studio’s distinctive new sleek Diamond Luxe collector-style packaging. With its state-of-the-art sophisticated and durable design, the new packaging is perfect for those wishing to add this edition to their home libraries. Also included is Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster — a look at the phenomenal marketing, extensive merchandising and franchise foresight that set the template for the next 25 years of tentpole pictures.
WBHE and DCE’s year-long celebration, befitting the world’s most popular Super Hero, will boast new products from WBE and DC Entertainment in numerous areas – comics, TV, Interactive Entertainment, Consumer Products and more. There is a new commemorative 75th anniversary Batman logo and an exclusive “Cape/Cowl/Create” art exhibit, featuring 20 contemporary artists’ interpretations of The Dark Knight’s iconic cowl headpiece and cape from the new Batman: Arkham Knight video game. Various other events are taking place throughout the year.
In addition to releasing Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition, WBHE will also feature the highly anticipated release of the 1960s Batman: The Complete Television Series for the first time ever. Other new home entertainment releases include animated films Son of Batman and Batman: Assault on Arkham.
Lastly, as Batman’s 75th anniversary is celebrated this year, Warner Bros. Pictures has begun production of Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice starring Henry Cavill, who reprises his role as Superman/Clark Kent, Ben Affleck as Batman/Bruce Wayne and Gal Gadot as Diane Prince/Wonder Woman. The film, slated for release summer 2016, will bring the most iconic Super Heroes of all time together for the first time on the big screen.
