The next movie from the DC Universe Animated Originals line is Batman: Death in the Family, based on the notorious story in which the Joker killedRobin And just like in that 1988 story, fans will choose whether the kid passes away or lives.
Much like Netflix’s Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, Batman: Death in the Family will consist of interactive components and a branching story, enabling the audience to manage the fate of Jason Todd. The trailer, seen on IGN, mean some significant discrepancies from DC canon depending on those options, consisting of Jason in his conventional role as the reanimated vigilante the Red Hood, however also as Red Robin, and as a version of Hush.
The brief movie will also reunite much of the voice cast of Batman: Under the Red Hood, one of WB Animation’s best got DC animated movies, which just commemorated its 10 th anniversary.
The interactivity of the story is a nod to the original Batman: A Death in the Family arc, which had its own interactive element. In a nutshell, Batman editorial understood that the readership was divided on Jason Todd, and also wanted a reason to attempt out a phone ballot system to get readers invested in a comic. Batman #427 ended in a cliffhanger, and while the imaginative team crafted 2 various variations of Batman #428 just in case, readers were welcomed to call one number if they wanted Jason to live, and another if they wanted him todie
Just one version of Batman #428 was ever released, however Polygon got peek at what may have been when we checked out the DC Comics archives, where the incomplete sketches of the unpublished issue are kept. In 1988, readers chose that Jason Todd should die by a hair, however who understands what’ll take place when Batman: Death in the Family strikes Blu-ray and digital HD later on this fall. It’s one thing to thumbs down Jason Todd when he’s on the comics page, it’s another thing to do it while the kid is dragging his damaged body throughout the floor in full movement.
