If you want to watch Batman: Death in the Family online, here’s how to do just that! The 2020 movie is essential for fans of the caped crusader.

Who is your favourite superhero?

Over recent years, blockbuster cinema has arguably been defined by comic-book adaptations and picking a favourite hero has perhaps never been so difficult.

The release of Jon Favreau’s 2008 film Iron Man announced the arrival of the MCU and many have had their favourites determined by the cinematic universe’s output.

On the other hand, many will argue that no character remains more compelling than Batman.

We have seen the iconic vigilante portrayed by a wealth of talents, from Adam West to Ben Affleck. Indeed, fans are also currently anticipating Robert Pattinson’s fresh take.

However, before Matt Reeves’ epic reaches screens, audiences have been invited to dive into Batman: Death in the Family.

Directed by Brandon Vietti, the film stands out as the first interactive animated DC movie.

Here’s how to tune in…

The 2020 movie honours the comics

The interactive nature of Death in the Family is something which hearkens back to the comics.

A Death in the Family was a storyline which played out across four issues back in 1988.

Written by Jim Starlin and illustrated by Jim Aparo, the story followed Robin as he embarked on a journey to find his mother, free from working with Batman.

However, he was captured by the Joker and the readers were allowed to decide the character’s fate; there was a number voting system, in which fans were given the chance to call one of two numbers to determine his future.

We hope you enjoy it!
