The iconic voice of William Shatner has been signed on to bring Two-Face to life in the sequel to DC Animation's Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.   The surprising news was dropped Thursday night at the New York Comic Con world premiere panel for Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, with Warner Bros. Animation president Sam Register announcing that the follow-up to the retro Batman '66 animated movie voiced by Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newman would be officially titled Batman vs. Two-Face


The Gotham district attorney Harvey Dent and the deformed Two-Face maniac he becomes were never technically part of the original Batman TV series, but an unused episode treatment by legendary sci-fi author Harlan Ellison called The Two-Way Crimes Of Two-Face was adapated into the special 2014 comic book edition, Batman '66: The Lost Episode, written by Len Wein with art by José Luis Garcia-Lopez and Joe Prado. 


And with Scott Snyder's new All-Star Batman comic series going strong, giving Two-Face even more moments in the spotlight, the time is ripe for the twisted archvillain to appear in a showcase animated feature with the Dark Knight.   No word on when Batman vs Two Face will strike theaters or home video, but it should arrive in 2017.


Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders swings into select theaters Oct. 10, 2016, followed by its digital HD release one day later, then finally arrives on DVD/Blu-ray on Nov. 1.

What do you think of The Shat lending his vocal skills to Two-Face, and will you be following this sequel's progress into next year?
