Warner Bros.’ 2016 animated film Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders saw Adam West and Burt Ward team up once again to bring their campy, 60s versions of Batman and Robin to life. Following up on that film’s success, the all-new Batman vs. Two-Face finds the Dynamic Duo once again protecting Gotham City from some of the most nefarious villains in comics history, including the mutilated master of multiplicity, Two-Face. Pop culture icon William Shatner joins the fun as the criminally conflicted Harvey Dent and his alter ego this time around. (After the 1963 TV series pilot Alexander The Great, this is only the second production of any kind to feature the two fan-favorite titans together.) The upcoming animated film’s first trailer now gives fans their first look and listen!
The voice cast also includes Tony Award-winner Julie Newmar reprising her role as Catwoman, with Jeff Bergman (Joker, Bookworm, Desmond Dumas), Sirena Irwin (Dr. Quinzel), Thomas Lennon (Chief O’Hara), Lee Meriwether (Lucilee Diamond), William Salyers (Penguin), Lynne Marie Stewart (Aunt Harriet), Jim Ward (Hugo Strange, Commissioner Gordon), Steven Weber (Alfred, Two-Face henchmen) and Wally Wingert (Riddler, King Tut).
