Jensen Ackles to play Batman in The Long Halloween

Former “Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles will lend his lungs to the title character in Warner Animation’s “Batman : The Long Halloween”.

Ackles, who also guested on superhero series “Smallville” in it’s hey day, will be joined by Josh Duhamel (“Transformers”) as Harvey Dent, Billy Burke (“Twilight”) as James Gordon, Titus Welliver (“Bosch”) as Carmine Falcone, David Dastmalchian (“The Suicide Squad”) as Calendar Man, and Alastair Duncan (“Buffy, the Vampire Slayer”) as Alfred.

Naya Rivera, who sadly passed away last July, voices Catwoman/Selina Kyle.

Chris Palmer directs from a Tim Sheridan script.

Christmas. St. Patrick’s Day. Easter. As the calendar’s days stack up, so do the bodies littered in the streets of Gotham City. A murderer is loose, killing only on holidays. The only man that can stop this fiend? The Dark Knight. In a mystery taking place during Batman’s early days of crime fighting, Batman: The Long Halloween is one of the greatest Dark Knight stories ever told.

Working with District Attorney Harvey Dent and Lieutenant James Gordon, Batman races against the calendar as he tries to discover who Holiday is before he claims his next victim each month. A mystery that has the reader continually guessing the identity of the killer, this story also ties into the events that transform Harvey Dent into Batman’s deadly enemy, Two-Face.

Part one of “The Long Halloween” will bow later this year.
