Batman: Death in the Family (2020)
Trained as Batman’s protégé, Jason Todd brings a relentless sense of justice as Robin, who sets his sights on bringing down the Joker. But can Batman save Robin from a fate worse than death? Tragedy, revenge and redemption await in this groundbreaking DC film! Who will live? Who will die? Who will watch over Gotham?
Batman: Death in the Family is DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s first-ever venture into interactive storytelling that allows fans to choose where the story goes through an innovative navigation guided by your remote control. Central to the short film is an adaptation of “Batman: A Death in the Family,” the 1988 landmark DC comic book event where fans voted by telephone to determine the story’s ending.
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 Vietti's previous DC animated movie, 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.
In addition, Batman: Death in the Family also includes four additional DC Showcase shorts: Adam Strange, Sgt. Rock, The Phantom Stranger and Death.
