It’s been nearly 25 years since Batman: Mask of the Phantasm hit theaters and now after all this time it will finally see release on Blu-Ray. According to a tweet by Warner Archive, the animated flick, based on the iconic Batman: The Animated Series, is set to be released in July.
For those unfamiliar with the film, and shame on you if you are, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm centers around Batman’s hunt for a spectral killer who is taking out mobsters. Throw in a retelling of Bruce’s origin story, the return of a former flame, and an appearance by a certain purple suit-wearing clown and you have the recipe for a fantastic entry in the Bat Film Canon.
Currently no special features aside from the theatrical trailer have been announced and the precise release date is unknown.
