Batman: The Long Halloween(2022) VERIFIED
Bruce Wayne attends a New Year's Eve yacht party celebrating Gotham's children's clinic, hosted by Falcone, who calls out Bruce during his speech as the son he never had, angering Alberto. Bruce meets with Selina Kyle, who calls off their relationship due to their conflicting secret identities. Joker attempts to gas the New Year's Eve celebration in Gotham Square using a stolen plane, hoping that Holiday is among the crowd. Meanwhile, Selina meets with Alberto to learn about the Falcone family. Alberto laments about never being respected by his father, who also rejected his fiancée from Oxford University. Batman foils Joker's scheme, and when Joker remarks that he "loves a good puzzle", Batman deduces that Alberto, who would benefit the most from killing his father's enemies and is known for his love of puzzles, is the killer. Returning to the yacht, Batman accuses Alberto of being Holiday, targeting his father's associates to gain power within the family. Alberto angrily denies wanting control of the family business, citing he no longer wishes to be in his father's shadow. As the New Year starts, Alberto is shot dead by Holiday and falls into the water, where his body is cut to pieces by the yacht's propellers. Batman pursues Holiday, but the killer manages to escape via speedboat. As the ship is evacuated, Gordon and Harvey meet with Batman. Batman tells his allies to assign a protective detail to Falcone.
Batman: The Long Halloween(2022)
Batman: The Long Halloween (by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale) is one of the most popular tales of the Dark Knight, and is highly esteemed among fans. Originally published in 1996 and 1997, the story follows a young and inexperienced Caped Crusader as he becomes accustomed to his new role as the protector of Gotham and takes place along the same timeline as The Batman. In the comics, the Dark Knight Detective is tasked with solving the mystery of a serial killer who targets mobsters and claims a victim on each holiday of the year, starting in October. The Riddler takes a nod from this in the film, claiming his first victim on Halloween as well.
In both Hush and The Batman, the Riddler is portrayed as a fully realized villain who is also a criminal mastermind. The film also borrows from the storyline and aesthetics of The Long Halloween. By merging aspects of these two highly revered comics, Matt Reeves has created a cinematic experience that pleases moviegoers and comic book audiences alike, presenting a version of Batman and his world that longtime fans of the Caped Crusader have been waiting years to see in action.

Batman: The Long Halloween sees the Caped Crusader team up with Commissioner Jim Gordon and Harvey Dent to take down the mobs of Gotham led by Sal Maroni and Carmine Falcone. At the same time, the trio is forced to deal with the Holiday Killer, an enigmatic villain who kills high-ranking members of the mob using a gun with a baby bottle cap as a makeshift silencer. Along the way, Batman is aided by Catwoman, who (in the film version), admits that Falcone is actually her father, hence her interest in the case. The Riddler also makes a brief appearance in the comic book only, as Carmine hires him to figure out who the Holiday Killer is. However, the movie ends with an all-out war on the streets, with Batman and Catwoman going toe-to-toe with the likes of Poison Ivy, Solomon Grundy, and the Scarecrow. In The Batman, Dent isn't present, and a major bust has already taken down Sal Maroni. Gordon and Batman instead team up to take down Riddler, who is murdering corrupt Gotham officials with connections to Falcone, who essentially runs the city from the shadows.
Many Batman movies have been influenced by the comic books, but along with Batman: The Killing Joke, The Long Halloween has been one of the cinematic Batman's primary influences. The Batman is no exception, and its similarities to the book can be broken down into three categories: tone, characters, and narrative structure. More than any film before it, even The Dark Knight, The Batman adapts major elements from the iconic comic book, including specific moments and character relationships. Though it doesn't feature a finale riddled with classic Batman villains, it can be seen as a spiritual remake of the beloved novel.

Sooner than later, a victim turns up dead each month on a major holiday as Batman and others try a figure out this puzzle. It's all dead ends, even with Joker escaping from Arkham and other iconic villains out loose in the city. Just like a page out of Silence of The Lambs, Batman enlists the help of somebody who is incarcerated to solve this series of crimes. Meanwhile, Wayne and Selina Kyle's relationship is on the rocks, along with Dent and Gordon's personal lives being drenched in turmoil. And as the Falcone and Maroni crime families become entangled and secrets are aired out, more violence is set on top of Gotham unless Batman can stop it all.
This release comes with a great DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio mix that has some booming effects. The sound effects are robust and loud when the action kicks into gear. It's not on par with a big-budget Michael Bay film, but it gets the job done. Explosions, gunshots, fight choreography, and vehicle chases all pack the necessary punch on all speakers. The low end of bass has a great rumble to it without crossing into rocky terrain. Ambient noises of people talking, screaming, and cheering, along with bat grappling sounds with his tools all sound fantastic.
Taking place during Batman's early days of crime-fighting, The Long Halloween tells the story of a mysterious killer named Holiday, who murders people on holidays, one each month. Working with District Attorney Harvey Dent and Lieutenant James Gordon, Batman races across the calender as he tries to catch Holiday, before he claims his next victim each month. The story also ties into the events that transform Harvey Dent into Batman's deadly enemy, Two-Face. Incontinuity terms, The Long Halloween continues the story of Batman: Year One. It also revolves around the transition of Batman's rogues gallery from simple mob goons to full-fledged supervillains. It also tells the origin of Two-Face, adding along to the story in Batman: Annual #14.
In Batman: Arkham Knight, when first discovering one of Professor Pyg's failed experiments, Batman and Alfred reflect on Batman having to conduct a similar serial killing case back on his first year, coincidentally also on Halloween, with Alfred mentioning that the events of that Halloween were "a long one," alluding to The Long Halloween. Two-Face and Harvey Dent also allude during his fight with Batman during a bank robbery their former partnership in taking down crime.
The film The Batman (2022) has influence from Batman: The Long Halloween, with some direct allusions including Carmine Falcone describing a scene from the comic while explaining his past with Thomas Wayne, or how at the beginning of the film, a reporter describes the weather as, "A long and stormy Halloween" right before the mayor is killed by Riddler. Similarly to Batman: The Long Halloween, the film is set early in Batman's career (in the film's case, his second year), and follows him pursuing a serial-killer taking out individuals connected to Carmine Falcone while Batman explores his relationship with Catwoman. 041b061a72
