Batman: The Long Halloween Reveals Calendar Man As a Key Villain


Calendar Man has been unveiled as one of the key villains in Batman: The Long Halloween, Part 1, the hotly anticipated animated adaptation of the acclaimed miniseries by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale.

Warner Bros. Entertainment recently released a new clip from the comic-based feature, spotlighting Calendar Man at the forefront of Batman and Police Captain James Gordon’s investigations. The duo visits the in-the-know villain, who is acutely aware of every date of the year, in his appropriately decorated cell at Arkham Asylum as part of their attempts to ascertain the identity of the Holiday Killer.

Based on the 13-issue comics story arc first published in 1996, The Long Halloween chronicles an early period in Batman’s crime-fighting career that sees him on the trail of the Holiday Killer, a serial murderer who claims a new victim on each major holiday. Batman’s mission to catch Holiday also sees him cross paths with supervillains such as Joker, Catwoman, Scarecrow, Calendar Man, and Solomon Grundy.


The animated adaptation’s all-star voice cast features Jensen Ackles as Batman/Bruce Wayne, together with Billy Burke as James Gordon, David Dastmalchian as Calendar Man, Troy Baker as Joker, the late Naya Rivera as Catwoman/Selina Kyle, Josh Duhamel as Harvey Dent, Titus Welliver as Carmine Falcone, Amy Landecker as Barbara Gordon, Julie Nathanson as Gilda Dent, Jack Quaid as Alberto, Fred Tatasciore as Solomon Grundy, and Alastair Duncan as Alfred, amongst others.

Superman: Man of Tomorrow and Voltron: Legendary Defender veteran Chris Palmer directed Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One from a screenplay by his fellow Man of Tomorrow colleague Tim Sheridan, with producers Jim Krieg and Kimberly S. Moreau. Butch Lukic served as a supervising producer while Michael Uslan and Sam Register acted as executive producers on the feature-length animated movie, which is being distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and Blu-ray on June 22, 2021.


Batman: The Long Halloween was announced last year as a part of a series of four DC Universe films coming in 2021, two of which encompass the two-part Long Halloween. The others were Batman: Soul of the Dragon, released at the start of the year, which we thought delivered “mostly satisfying” results, and Justice Society: World War II, released in April, which we called “an entertaining romp that ranks among DC’s best animated movies.”
