Comic-Con: Batman Beyond complete series blu-ray announced!
The 20th anniversary panel for the hit series Batman Beyond took place earlier today at San Diego Comic-Con, bringing with it the announcement that the complete series will be released later this year on blu-ray! The entire series and the animated film, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, will be in the box set which arrives in stores this October.
Retailing for $100, the box set includes all 52 episodes with new featurettes, lenticular art cards, and a chrome Batman Beyond Funko Pop. 41 of the 52 episodes from the series have been fully remastered for the new release, with the other 11 using a different process as the original film negatives had become damaged.
The remastered Batman Beyond will be available digitally on October 15 with the home media release arriving on October 29. Season one of the series will debut on the DC Universe app much earlier though, arriving August 23.
First premiering in January 1999, Batman Beyond told the story of teenager Terry McGinnis who discovers an elder Bruce Wayne’s secret and later comes under his wing to take on the mantle of Batman in a cyberpunk, futuristic Gotham City. Will Friedle voiced the lead roel with Kevin Conroy reprising as Bruce Wayne. A fan favorite since its premiere, the world of Batman Beyond has continued in the pages of DC comics since the series ended.
