Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is taking the death of Jason Todd quite seriously, by letting you decide his fate in the upcoming animated movie redux.

Produced, directed and written by Brandon Vietti, Batman: Death in the Family offers an inventive take on the long-demanded story. In the new animated presentation, the infamous murder of Batman protégé Jason Todd will be undone, and the destinies of Batman, Robin and The Joker will play out in shocking new ways as viewers make multiple choices to control the story. And while Batman: Under the Red Hood provides a baseline, the story also branches in new directions and features several characters previously unseen in the original film. Bruce Greenwood (The Resident, Star Trek, iRobot), Vincent Martella (Phineas and Ferb) and John DiMaggio (Futurama, Adventure Time) reprise their Batman: Under The Red Hood roles of Batman, young Jason Todd and The Joker, respectively. Other featured voices are Zehra Fazal (Young Justice) as Talia al Ghul and Gary Cole (Veep) as Two-Face and James Gordon.

Five fascinating tales from the iconic DC canon, including the first interactive film presentation in Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (WBHE) history, come to…

For those of you old enough to remember the halcyon days of 1-800 numbers, DC pulled a stunt in the 80s that allowed people to call a number that would determine the fate of Todd in the comics. Turns out, people really did want to see Jason die, so the infamous crowbar to the head scene was introduced, spiralling Batman into a state of depression until Tim Drake came along to prove he really is the best Robin…

But I digress… Batman: Death in the Family is an interesting concept giving the viewer a chance to check out the animated story in a number of different ways to see if they can prevent Jason’s death, and change the face of the DCU forever! But probably not.

Batman: Death in the Family arrives with FIVE DC animated shorts including Death, The Phantom Stranger, Adam Strange, and Sgt. Rock. The Blu-ray collection arrives on October 13, 2020, and has a SRP of $24.98.
