Side by side comparison with the remastered Batman Beyond and what I assume is the original film elements (because the DVDs don’t look THAT bad!)
Batman Beyond will be released on Blu-Ray on October 29th.
I am out of a long cryosleep to tell you that Batman Beyond is coming to Blu-Ray on October 29th! From IGN.com:
Batman Beyond is getting a remastered release to celebrate the landmark series’ 20th anniversary. Batman Beyond: The Complete Animated Series Limited Edition will arrive on digital on October 15 and Blu-Ray on October 29.
Comprising 1,500 minutes of Batman Beyond across four discs, the set will also include 2 discs of bonus content including a remastered version of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker and 15 featurettes about the series. Four episodes of the core series will also receive audio commentary from executive producer Bruce Timm and members of the production team. The physical release also includes a Batman Beyond Funko Pop with chrome paint and four lenticular art cards.
IGN also has an exclusive side-by-side comparison of Batman Beyond’s original footage with the newly remastered Blu-ray version, watch below:
Autoplay setting: On
Of the 52 Beyond episodes, 41 have been fully remastered from the original 35mm film, removing film grain for better color, removing dust and dirt and enhancing the resolution.
The 11 other episodes have been damaged over time, meaning they have been ‘Smart Rezzed’, resulting in a better image than the original, but not as advanced as the fully remastered episodes. Those 11 episodes are: “Eyewitness,” “Final Cut,” “The Last Resort,” “Armory,” “Sneak Peek,” “The Eggbaby,” “Zeta,” “Plague,” “April Moon,” “Sentries of the Lost Cosmos” and “Speak No Evil.”
Did you know?
In the movie the date seen on Gordon’s security camera photo of The Joker taken during the bank heist reads “2008/07/18”, which was the U.S. theatrical release date of the film.
If you could have one superpower, flight or invisibility, what would you pick? Everybody chooses flight. You know why?
So they can fly away from this conversation?
