However, they are not the only two stars lending their voices for this upcoming Batman animated flick based on one of the best comic books of all time.

Chris Palmer, who directed Superman: Man of Tomorrow, is helming the project and he’s working off a script from Tim Sheridan.
Jim Krieg and Kimberly S. Moreau are producing.
The Long Halloween is one of the best graphic novels ever
Butch Lukic is the supervising producer, with Michael Uslan and Sam Register serving as executive producers.
This two-part movie is based on The Long Halloween, which was by writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale.
It was released back in 1996 and it told the story of Batman early on in his career as he tried to uncover and stop a serial killer who was tormenting Gotham City.
This story was a huge influence for Christopher Nolan when he was making his Dark Knight trilogy.
It’s also rumoured that Matt Reeves’ upcoming The Batman film is also heavily influenced by the graphic novel.
