William Shatner to voice Two-Face in new animated Batman film

A follow up to Return of the Caped Crusader

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader is just a few days away from being released, and during a panel for DC’s upcoming animated feature at New York Comic Con, the studio announced that the film will be getting a sequel.

Stars from the original Batman TV series, including Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar, were on stage to talk about Return of the Caped Crusader when an unexpected visitor interrupted them to break some news of his own. William Shatner, best known for playing Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek series, announced that he will be playing Two-Face in a sequel to Return of the Caped Crusader called Batman vs. Two-Face.

Although Shatner didn’t provide any information on the movie, there’s a good chance that it won’t happen for a little while yet. The next film in DC’s animated library, Justice League Dark, is currently in development. Following the release of that film, however, it appears Batman vs. Two-Face will be the next big project to come out of DC’s animated department.

Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader will be available to download on Oct. 11 and can be purchased on Blu-ray as of Nov. 1.
