The best Batman movie is finally coming to 4K

After a 30 year wait, we're finally getting one of the best Batman movies on a decent 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release, and it's a good day to be a Kevin Conroy fan.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

For serious comic book fans, it’s usually generally accepted that the animated adaptations of their favorite stories and characters are superior to the live-action adaptations. With Spider-Man, The Animated Series (1994-1998) and the recent Spider-Verse movies are considered high watermarks. For Batman, The Animated Series (1992-1995), and its spin-off movie Mask of the Phantasm (1993) are also much-cherished.

The voiceover stars Kevin Conroy (Batman) and Mark Hamill (Joker) are also viewed as some of the best Batman actors and Joker actors to ever portray those characters. And now an upcoming Blu is being released which includes a new special feature called Kevin Conroy: I am the Knight, paying tribute to the late actor who passed away in November 2022.

The special feature is part of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, which Warner Bros and DC have finally remastered on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 30 years after its theatrical release. One of the best Batman movies, it will be available as a 4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital combo pack on September 12.

The synopsis of Mask of the Phantasm is as follows; “When a woman from Bruce Wayne’s past, Andrea Beaumont, comes back into his life, Bruce questions whether he should continue protecting Gotham City as Batman. But his introspection is short-lived when the city’s most notorious crime bosses are killed, and the Caped Crusader is blamed for their murders. The Dark Knight sets out to clear his name, revealing a new masked vigilante: the Phantasm.”
