Back in 1993, an animated movie about the Dark Knight premiered. Little did people knew this film would become one of the most popular and successful of Batman’s movies.
We are talking about Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.
The movie serves as an extension of Batman: The Animated Series and duels on what means for Bruce to be Batman and sorting, through flashbacks, how he wants his life to be, having to decide between love and his mission.
The movie not only has great animation and quality in storytelling, but it’s also an emotional trip that shows us aspects of the cape crusader we are not that familiar with: his struggle as a young man not really into vigilantism, the doubts he had before Bruce became the Batman.
24 years later and the movie was only available on VHS and DVD… until today, when Warner Archive Collection announced via Facebook and Twitter that the film is getting a 1080p HD remaster and will be presented in both its original theatrical 16×9 aspect ratio and open matte 4×3.

The Blu-Ray of The Phantasm will be available next month.
