Warner Bros. Animation has a rich history of bringing DC Comics super heroes to life via animation, and then to your homes via DVD collections. One of the more popular, if not cult-ish, toons that has since been neglected in a complete collection is Batman Beyond, the Future Knight version of the Batman mythos, created by Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League folks like Bruce Timm and Paul Dini. Now, WB unveils that they’re making everything right in the world, releasing Batman Beyond: The Complete Series, a nine-disc DVD set, on November 23rd, 2010. The package includes all 52 episodes, bonus features, and a 24-page booklet. Check out the box art!
Terry McGinnis was just an ordinary teenager…. until his father was mysteriously murdered. Suspecting foul play at his father’s company Wayne/Powers Corporation, Terry meets Bruce Wayne and learns a secret identity hidden for decades. Now too old to battle injustice, Wayne refuses to help. So Terry does what any brash young kid would do: steal the Batsuit and take matters into his own hands! Vowing to avenge his father’s death, Terry dons the high-tech suit tricked out with jetpacks, a supersensitive microphone and even camouflage capabilities in search of his father’s assassin. Get in on the action from the beginning of a new partnership between an ex-crimefighter and his apprentice.
Warner Home Video will release Batman Beyond: The Complete Series for about $100. The voice cast stars Will Friedle as Batman Beyond and Terry McGinnis, Kevin Conroy as as Bruce Wayne the original Batman, and a number of celebrity guest voiceovers; Paul Winfield, Stockard Channing, Seth Green, William H. Macy, Wayne Brady, Terry Garr, George Lazenby, Dan Castellaneta, Jodi Benson, George Takei, Henry Rollins.
