Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, one of the most beloved stories in the history of the Dark Knight, is finally getting a proper Blu-ray release. Long hailed as a crowning achievement in Batman’s storied history, Mask of the Phantasm (an extension of the much beloved Batman: The Animated Series) tells the tale of a mysterious, reaper-like new villain, the Phantasm, who is systematically killing off a select group of Gotham’s mob. Batman is tasked with stopping the Phantasm and attempting to ascertain their motives. At the same time, a figure from Bruce Wayne’s past, Andrea Beaumont, returns to Gotham, leading to Bruce reminiscing on their romance and its direct effect on his origins as Batman.

Announced by Warner Archive Collection via Facebook and Twitter, the film is getting a full 1080p HD remaster next month and will be presented in both its original theatrical 16×9 aspect ratio and open matte 4×3. No word yet on extras beyond the theatrical trailer. What I know FOR CERTAIN is that this is going to be a day one pick up for me!
