For many Batman fans, 1993’s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the greatest animated Dark Knight films ever made. Although it’s been available on VHS and DVD, it never received a Blu-ray release. Until now.
Warner Archive took to Twitter to announce that Batman: Mask of the Phantasm will be remastered for Blu-ray shortly (July 25th to be exact). The new remaster will include versions with both the original theatrical 16×9 aspect ratio (1.78:1) and a 4×3 (1.37:1) aspect ratio version. Directed by Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm, the animated film features the voice of Kevin Conroy as Batman as well as Mark Hamill as The Joker.
In this animated feature set in the 1940s, the troubled yet heroic Batman (Kevin Conroy) is pitted against a mysterious figure who is rubbing out Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals, and who many believe is the caped crusader himself. Batman’s alter ego, millionaire Bruce Wayne, is about to get married to the lovely Andrea Beaumont (Dana Delany), who helps him recover from his need to avenge his parents’ murder — meaning that his crime-fighting days may be numbered.
