Believe it or not, the Collinsport Historical Society was the first website to break the news about the upcoming BATMAN animated film starring Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar. I happened to be in the audience during a panel featuring West and Ward at Mad Monster Party in Charlotte, N.C., back in March, 2015. Assuming fans of DARK SHADOWS were probably also fans of the classic BATMAN series, it seemed like a nice fit. By chance, we were also the first website to deliver the news to folks not attending the convention. (I usually don't care about the dubious distinction of being "first," but holy crap ... it's Batman!)
Since then, there's been little news about the feature (which, at one point, was even rumored to be splitting into two movies.) Entertainment Weekly has just shared a trailer for the film, BATMAN: RETURN OF THE CAPED CRUSADERS, which will hit DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 1. You can read more about the film HERE, and watch the trailer below.
