WATCH: Batman: The Long Halloween trailer takes a look at one of his most famous cases

The new animated movie features an incredible all-star cast.

While we say goodbye to one version of Batman (sort of) with Ben Affleck hanging up the cape, and we await the arrival of another when Robert Pattinson takes on the role of The Batman for the 2022 movie release, we've yet another Bruce Wayne to say hello to.

Batman: The Long Halloween is the latest entry in the long-standing, critically-acclaimed animated universe of the Caped Crusader and this time he is voiced by Supernatural and Dawson's Creek star Jensen Ackles.

For this adaptation, he'll be taking on one of young Batman's most famous mysteries as he attempts to track down the Holiday Killer, a serial killer who appears to only strike on holidays.

When one of the victims is tied to the Falcone crime family, it triggers a potential gang war in Gotham, so Batman is forced to team up with Gotham's police captain James Gordon (Billy Burke - Twilight) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Josh Duhamel - Transformers) in order to solve the case as soon as possible.

If you're thinking that some of this already sounds a little familiar, that is because it was a major inspiration for Christopher Nolan's take on The Dark Knight. But, apparently, this adaptation will head even further into the violent depths of the story, as while Part One of the film has been rated PG-13 in the States (12A over here), Part Two has been rated R (15A or 16 over here).

Meanwhile, the rest of the voice cast is also massively impressive, featuring Troy Baker (The Last of Us) as Joker, David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad) as Calendar Man, Titus Welliver (Bosch) as Carmine Falcone, Jack Quaid (The Boys) as Alberto and the late Naya Rivera (Glee) as Catwoman.

Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One will be available to watch via Blu-Ray and PVOD this summer, with Part Two set to arrive this autumn.
