As a sequel to 2016’s Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, Batman vs. Two Face sees Adam West, in his final performance as Batman, re-team with Burt Ward as their classic 1960’s dynamic duo, but in animated form. This time around, they will be facing off against Harvey Dent/Two Face, voiced by William Shatner, who goes on a crime wave across Gotham that brings Batman and the Boy Wonder into conflict with classic villains like Catwoman, Joker, Riddler, Penguin, Bookworm, Hugo Strange, and King Tutt.
After the screening, William Shatner, Burt Ward, screenwriters James Tucker and Michael Jalenic, and director Rick Morales will participate in a panel hosted by TV Guide senior editor Damien Holbrook.

Everyone in attendance at the panel will also receive a New York Comic Con exclusive poster from Lauren Montgomery.
The 2013 monster brawl that was Pacific Rim supposedly saw Charlie Hunnam’s Becket and Rinko Kikuchi’s Mako cancel the apocalypse with their Jaeger, Gypsy Danger, but that doesn’t mean the apocalypse can’t be rescheduled.
While plot details for the sequel Pacific Rim: Uprising are scant, director Steven S. DeKnight has put together an excellent cast featuring John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny, Jing Tian, Rinko Kikuchi, Adria Arjona, and returning characters played by Burn Gorman and Charlie Day.
The panel, hosted by Aaron Sagers from SYFY Wire, will feature Boyega, Eastwood, Gorman, and Spaeny for an official unveiling of the movie’s first trailer.
As the newest animated DC Elseworlds story, Gotham by Gaslight takes the classic graphic novel about a Victorian era Batman tracking down Jack the Ripper in Gotham City. A sneak peak was recently released, highlighting what appears to be an excellent animated film.
The Gotham by Gaslight panel and first look clips will be presented by producer Bruce Timm, director Sam Liu, screenwriter Jim Krieg, and some “surprise guests.”
