It should be interesting seeing how they will fit all this into a short (presumably under 30 minutes). I mean there will probably be the main story, until Robin is captured (which might take a while) and then we switch to alternate scenarios. I don't recall the exact explanation Ra's had about what he hired Joker for, but I think that mission alone could have made for a fun prequel mini-movie. Still, I like they're doing something different here. It's also cool seeing Two-Face will have a role in all this, the Red Robin outfit (though I would have preferred seeing Tim wear it) and another change to the Hush story.

I also wonder if there will be a scenario that puts the movie into the Young Justice continuity. :p


Yes, have some.

Death of the Family must be October or November. Look like dead months in terms of releases. On one hand, it could be October 20, 2020 since Bloodlines released on 4K/Blu-ray/DVD on October 22, 2019. On the other hand, the first DC Showcase collection was released on November 9, 2010 so another guess I have is November 10, 2020. A real out of left field guess would be September 29 (there's nothing coming out in the second half of that month).

From a marketing standpoint, October could be seen as a new potential month for one last DC DTV before the year ends. Get it out in stores before it's buried under the big November and December holiday sales and other studio's bigger title releases.

Another factor is Superman: Man of Tomorrow is a late release this year in terms of the third movie release (Hush came out July 2019, Man of Tomorrow in September 2020). Would they want release Death in the Family in right after MoT one month later in October or wait until early November? Are they trying to stretch out the gaps a little and spread out the content they have? Both Deathstroke: The Movie releases are in August, then the MoT digital release is late August then the MoT in early September. Possibly the S:TAS Blu-ray set in late October so they could look at early October. Nothing major in November or December yet.

If I had 3 guesses: October 6, October 20, or November 10.

So, this is fitting. Also, why does this meme only go until September?
