Hailing from Digital Bits:

For Batman’s 80th birthday, Warner Bros. has officially announced that Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) as well as Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever (1995) and Batman and Robin (1997) are getting the 4K treatment.

The site notes the films are being scanned from their original negative prints in native 4K resolution, fully remastered and graded for high dynamic range in HDR10. Additionally, they’ll also support Dolby Atmos audio mixes.

You will be able to purchase the films in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and/or Digital on an individual basis beginning 6/4. For you completionists, a 4K Batman Anthology box set will be available on a later date, more specifically 9/17.

Each package will include the newly remastered Blu-ray versions of the films along with their previous special features, and a Digital code.

There are also reports going around that Fathom Events will be showing all four films remastered and on the big screen sometime this season. Check with your local movie theater to see if these films are showing near you!
