Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (also known as Batman: The Animated
Movie) is a 1993 animated superhero film based on the fictional DC Comics
character Batman, and is a spin-off of the Emmy Award-winning Batman:
The Animated Series. Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm directed the film,
which stars Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker, as well
as Dana Delany, Hart Bochner, Abe Vigoda, and Stacy Keach. The film's
storyline introduces Andrea Beaumont, an old love interest of Bruce
Wayne's, who returns to Gotham City, restarting their romance. At the
same time, a mysterious killer begins systematically eliminating Gotham's
crime bosses, and due to the person's dark appearance, he is mistaken for
Batman. Now on the run from the police, Batman must apprehend the killer,
clear his name, and deal with the romance between himself and Andrea.


Development for the film started after the success of Batman: The
Animated Series on the Fox Network. Warner Bros. assigned Alan Burnett
to write the story, and Burnett collaborated with writers Paul Dini, Michael
Reaves, and Martin Pasko. The original idea was to release the film as
direct-to-video, but the studio decided for a theatrical release, giving the
filmmakers a strenuous eight-month schedule. Mask of the Phantasm was
released with positive critical success, but resulted in poor box office
returns due to the decision to release the film in theaters on such short
notice. The film has since found cult success through its various VHS and
DVD releases.
