Batman - Blu-ray Disc and DVD Versions of 'The Complete Series Are Confirmed for November
Warner's 'Sizzle Reel' brings lots of Bat-excitement as we wait for the official announcement at San Diego Comic Con
Posted by David Lambert
A little while ago this afternoon, our friends over at Newsarama.com broke the word that "BATMAN: THE COMPLETE TV Series [is] Coming to Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download [in] November 2014." They go on to show the following "sizzle reel" that was provided by the folks at Warner Bros.:
Please visit Newsarama.com for all their info. There they also inform, as does 13thDimension.com, the fact that WB's formal announcement of the title will come "at a Comic-Con International panel - featuring special guests Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar - on Thursday, July 24 from 6:00-7:00pm in Hall H."
So the long-awaited set with all 3 seasons - including all 120 episodes and tons of bonus material - will be available in stores on both DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc this November, 2014. But we already knew this, thanks to Burt "Robin" Ward. So WHEN in November? Well, the specific date isn't part of today's information, and nothing is set in stone yet...but it makes sense to expect this to be for sale JUST in time for the "Black Friday" holiday gift-buying season, when foot traffic in stores is at its highest.
So it comes as no surprise that we were told about a comment posted recently in the 66Batman.com message board - made by Writer and Illustrator Andy Fish - says to expect the title's release date to be November 18th...9 days before Thanksgiving, and 10 days before Black Friday. Holy Sales-Logic, Batman! But is it true? [UPDATE: Warner has advised us that this date is NOT correct, so everybody who have been emailing us with this info should take some white-out to their calendars!] We're waiting on the official announcement from Warner, of course. Stay Bat-tuned...
Amazon even has a Bat-listing, but it's not accepting pre-orders as of this writing. Hopefully soon! Our thanks to readers Michael Harris, Greg Chenoweth and Louis Szabo for their help with this story.
