One Of The Best Batman Movies Ever Made Is Finally Coming To Blu-Ray

If you've been holding your breath waiting for Batman: Mask of the Phantasm to get a high-definition release, you can finally exhale. The classic animated movie will finally be out on Blu-Ray soon.

Announced on the Warner Archive Collection Facebook and Twitter accounts page, the release is a new 1080p remaster of the 1993 Bat-film. There's no official info on release timing but these announcements typically come a month before retail availability. This has been a long time coming, and a reply tweet from the Warner Archive account hints at why:

Mask of the Phantasm is one of the most fully realised portraits of both Batman and Bruce Wayne ever committed to film. It will be great to take it all in again — or for the first time, for some — in a remastered format.


    It can sit next to my 'Under The Red Hood' Blu-Ray, in my opinion they are the two best Batman films ever made, including all of the live-action ones.

    Nice, but you know what would be better?

    Putting The Animated Series on Bluray.

    Is this getting an Australian release?

      Just focus on getting it from Amazon. Hardly any of the animated classics arrive here.

      Even if they do, it's usually years later.

      At least, that is my personal experience. It got to the point where there were so many delays and missed I just pretended there would not be an Australian release and only focused on the US release schedule.

        You it's sad that this is the case. I had to buy all the Animated Series from America.

          Same here but get this. When Return of the Caped Crusader came out, around a month later the remaining volumes of The Animated Series appeared on DVD.

          I just don't get Warner's logic anymore.
