According to this article, the film might be released in early 2018, though it does sound a little speculative: https://www.bleedingcool.com/2017/06/11/adam-west-william-shatner-failed-tv-pilot/

I suspect we won't hear anything about it until after the Batman & Harley Quinn screenings anyway. Maybe in September we'll learn more about this film and whether it will be screened in cinemas like its predecessor. So... maybe November/December 2017 or early next year for Batman vs. Two-Face?

I'm still guessing earlier (October 2017) as that article was highly speculative and the estimate was not based on anything authoritative. Also, we know now that Batman vs. Two-Face is completed and has already been rated PG by the MPAA. That supports a 2017 release.

Oh yes, that's right - sorry. I forgot about the rating even though I only read about that this week! Having said that, I do think we might not hear any news until after Batman & Harley Quinn has had its time in the spotlight. So perhaps a late October (or even November) release this time.

Barnes and Noble lists an October 17, 2017 release date for Batman vs. Two-Face, along with a look at the cover art and a brief synopsis.


Former Gotham City District Attorney Harvey Dent, one side of his face scarred by acid, goes on a crime spree based on the number '2'. All of his actions are decided by the flip of a defaced, two-headed silver dollar.

Stay tuned for confirmation of these details, and more, soon at The World's Finest.

I hope they prepare an explanation for how Catwoman survived that involves at least one stupid gadget. Heh heh heh.

Wonderful! Great cover art and nice to have a release date! I suppose the only question now is whether it will get a cinematic release...

Do you know what's funny? That is actually the plot outline that I submitted to IMDb back in January of this year. That is why it reads so generically. :anime:

Also worth noting is the banner above the movie's title, which reads "DC Animation Original Movie." The banner above Batman: R ieturn of the Caped Crusaders read "DC Classic Original Movie."
So it does! That does not bode well for the DC Classics imprint, though it does give us a bonus DC Universe movie for 2017.

I'm still waiting to see if this is based on the Harlan Ellison story treatment for the original show. We know that this is long enough to be equal to a three-part story in terms of a half-hour network television series; that may be how/why Catwoman was written into it (plus the chance to include Julie Newmar again!).

No sign of Batman vs. Two-Face at the Fathom Events website for September/October, but that might not be significant at this stage. On the other hand, though Return of the Caped Crusaders was a critical hit, I don't remember it pulling in great numbers for it's theatrical showing.

EDIT, 8/4: My bad! I misread James' post and thought the new banner read: DC Universe Animated Original Movie. Instead this seems to be a much more minor rebrand; as though someone upstairs decided that DC Classics would confuse consumers into thinking they were seeing a re-release instead of a new, original movie.

Ooh, not only a cover illustration but a release date! Awesome :D.

Though that plot summary sounds more like a Two-Face bio then a description of the story :sweat:.

Though it would be pretty true-to-form if they don't even bother explaining how she survived :rolleyes2:.

Hmm...I guess they're just consolidating this with the general animated movie line :ack:.

There's a reason for that. That is the same plot summary that I submitted to IMDb months ago with only the barest idea of what the movie might be about. B&N must have cribbed it from the movie site. In fact, I've submitted an update:

Former D.A. Harvey Dent, one side of his face scarred by acid, goes on a crime spree based on the number '2', his actions decided by the flip of a defaced silver dollar. Catwoman is the pur-fect choice to tip the odds--but which way?

Because it's from a Barnes and Noble page? It's probably not finalized cover art. WBA hasn't issued a new press release yet. The banner and logo and art might change.

Maybe, but it is not an encouraging sign for the DC Classics line, any more than the previous attempt to rebrand the DC Universe imprint that only lasted for one release

EDIT, 8/4: Sorry, I misread the earlier post. I think the DC Classics label is just being renamed to prevent confusion in the marketplace, so consumers won't think they are seeing a re-release of a 'classic' title.

FXX is now starting The Simpsons back at episode 1 for the first time since January, now we'll see if "Stark Raving Dad" will actually be skipped

*UPDATE: Yep, it's being skipped next Monday.
So... Universal Kids is really airing Totally Spies. This makes it the third network in the US to broadcast it. First was Fox/ABC Family, followed by Cartoon Network after ABC Family made it clear that they didn't want to air cartoons that weren't Jetix(or its prototype), and eventually family programming in general(outside of the holidays). I don't know how to feel.
One of the games on Camp Nick is kinda similar to Crystal Maze, which it will later then air on Nickelodeon in future
Me: Oh DARN. I can't believe I'm going to miss the LIVE premiere of Amphibia at 10 because of a stupid doctor's appointment!
*At 9:30, doctor's office calls*
Receptionist: Your appointment has been cancelled. You'll have to reschedule.
Me: :D *gleefully sings Hallelujah from Handel's Messiah*
Just noticed the MTV Movies & TV Awards will be airing on Nick at Nite, they add more networks to simulcast it every year.
