Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One is coming June 22, 2021 to Digital and Blu-ray! Check out the press details (you will want to, trust me), package art, and trailer at The World's Finest!
I am excited about the date because that may mean that we will have the second part in 2021.
It would be a disappointment to know that one of the 3 films of 2022 is Batman. I need more surprises like the Justice Society !! :D

Well, the combined Deluxe Collector's Edition will be released in 2022, but maybe that is not counted in the official count of the films.

Well, if they do not schedule part 2 for October, that really will be a disappointment.

I don't believe it is. It'll be considered a bonus of sorts.

Maybe Riddler, Ivy, and Penguin in part 2.

Well...

Riddler, perhaps, if they use the April Fool's Day event as the "opener" for Part Two. But Poison Ivy should very much be a part of the Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day events, and those should be placed in Part One.

If Part 2 comes late September-early October, when would the Deluxe edition come out? I'm hesitating on buying both parts separately.
I would guess early Spring 2022 like late February to March.

1. Looking at the most recent deluxe edition:

The Death of Superman released on July 24, 2018 and August 7, 2018.

Reign of the Supermen released on January 15, 2019 and January 29, 2019.

The Death and Return of Superman Deluxe Edition released on October 1, 2019.

So from the physical release date of the second movie, that's about 8 months until the deluxe came out.

2. Other releases

a. Early 2022 will also have the first release of the 2022 line around that time, too, which may throw a monkey wrench in the early spring guess. It all depends when the first release is.

If it's like Soul of the Dragon and releases January 12/January 24, 2021, then the early spring release guess should hold.

But if it's like Red Son and releases February 25/March 17, 2020, maybe the deluxe edition will come out in January instead OR in April or May.

b. Then there's also the question of when the DC Showcase collection is going to release.

The last regular short came with the Apokolips War set on May 19, 2020. Then the Death in the Family set came out on October 13. A 4 month gap. So if Long Halloween Part 2 comes out in late fall, this Showcase set is also looking at an early 2022 release.

c. both collections will release around the same time.

I wonder what thought went into releasing the Deluxe Edition months after Part 2? Even a shrink wrap job with a few bucks off the price of both features would be an enticement some would take?

By that point, spoilers will be unavoidable and by the very nature of the story, it's impact will be lost if the mystery as to who The Holiday Killer actually is. Surely the double dipping audience for this kind of feature is minute?

Well they've pulled the deluxe edition trick twice before, so it's no surprise. It must be working or they would stop commissioning two parters.

Probably helps that 'The Batman' is due for release early next year as well. Helps promote the movie and may entice a few more people to pick up the shiny new deluxe edition if Bat-mania is in full swing once again.

When will people realize that Quintel in J.G. Quintel is actually pronounced "Kintel"? His Portuguese ancestry makes it evident. I for one am Portuguese and Quintel is a very rare surname
Here's the trailer for Wish Dragon.

Since I agreed with @Francisque about keeping the genre-themed MTV channels, here is my rethinking of the ViacomCBS portfolio, posted in Palk Áron 2002's Arts.
I wish a happy 44th birthday to Michael Jelenic.
