Last month, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced the release details for the upcoming Batman: The Long Halloween 2-part animated adaptation. Today, new images from Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One were released. Most notable, one of the images revealed that Renee Montoya (voiced by Alyssa Diaz) will be appearing in the film.
First introduced in the seminal Batman: The Animated Series, detective Renee Montoya was shortly introduced in the comics and has a remained a fan-favorite since even taking on the mantle of The Question. Montoya has been portrayed in other media as well, most recently by Rosie Perez in the Birds of Prey film. It’s a small departure from the original Long Halloween comic miniseries by writer Jeph Loeb and Time Sale, where Montoya never actually appeared.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC, the feature-length animated Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be distributed by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital and Blu-ray on June 22, 2021.

Inspired by the iconic mid-1990s DC story from Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One begins as a brutal murder on Halloween prompts Gotham’s young vigilante, the Batman, to form a pact with the city’s only two uncorrupt lawmen – Police Captain James Gordan and District Attorney Harvey Dent – in order to take down The Roman, head of the notorious and powerful Falcone Crime Family. But when more deaths occur on Thanksgiving and Christmas, it becomes clear that instead of ordinary gang violence, they’re also dealing with a serial killer – the identity of whom, with each conflicting clue, grows harder to discern. Few cases have ever tested the wits of the World’s Greatest Detective like the mystery behind the Holiday Killer.
