    Jensen Ackles Is Batman In New Trailer For "Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One"

    Dean Winchester is now the Caped Crusader.

    It's happening. Supernatural star Jensen Ackles will voice Batman in Batman: The Long Halloween, Part One.

    In the new trailer, Ackles unveils his voice for the Caped Crusader, and I have to say, it is pretty fantastic.

    For the uninitiated, The Long Halloween — one of the best "detective" Batman graphic novels — is all about Batman searching for a killer who strikes on holidays.

    It might surprise you, but this isn't Ackles' first role in an animated Batman film. He starred as the headlining villain Red Hood in Batman: Under the Red Hood.

    *If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. It is my favorite Batman animated movie.*

    Needless to say, this story is an engaging murder mystery, and Warner Bros. has cast quite the ensemble of voice actors...

    "Pre–Two-Face" Harvey Dent is voiced by Las Vegas and All My Children star Josh Duhamel.
