Ever since the release of Batman: The Complete Animated Series Blu-ray boxset, one question has been on every Bat-fans’ mind: Is Batman Beyond being released on Blu-ray?

Well, I have good news – Batman Beyond is coming to Blu-ray courtesy of Warner Bros.!

The show is being remastered into high definition for its 20th anniversary and will be released in October. The news was announced today at San Diego Comic-Con during a special panel to mark the show’s anniversary year.

Up until now, the series has only ever been available in standard definition – either through DVD or digital. Today’s announcement is fantastic news for what is arguably one of the best animated Batman shows of all-time.

What will the Batman Beyond Blu-ray boxset include?

  • 52 episodes of Batman Beyond – 41 fully remastered
  • 1 x Batman Funko Pop! figure*
  • 1 X Return of the Joker movie
  • Featurettes
  • Art cards*

You’ll notice that in the initial details, only 41 of the 52 episodes will be fully remastered. This is because unfortunately, the remaining 11 episodes have been irreparably damaged and will need to be up-scaled.

*As with last year’s Blu-ray release of Batman: The Animated Series, expect the Funko Pop! figure and the art cards to be available via a limited edition collector’s edition only.

So, what are your thoughts about this upcoming release? Pretty exciting right?

In light of today’s announcement, surely now is also the time for a HD upgrade for Superman: The Animated Series and Justice League/Justice League Unlimited? Warner Bros., are you listening?
