Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has just officially confirmed information we’ve had in our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits for a while now, which is this…

Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992) and Joel Schumacher’s Batman Forever (1995) and Batman & Robin (1997) are officially coming to 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Digital on 6/4. You’ll be able to buy them as single SKU editions that day, and then a 4K Batman Anthology box set will follow on 9/17.

The films have been scanned from the original camera negatives in native 4K, fully remastered, and graded for high dynamic range in HDR10 (there is no mention of Dolby Vision but we’ll try to confirm its inclusion). They’ll also feature new Dolby Atmos audio mixes. [Read on here...]

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

We don’t yet have Amazon pre-order links for the individual SKUs, nor do we have artwork for the 4-film set, but we’ll add them below as soon as we do.

In the meantime, here’s a look at the single-film 4K cover artwork (UPDATE: Amazon links are live, not only for the Batman films but also Captain America: Civil War and The Winter Soldier in 4K)

Batman (1989) (4K Ultra HD) Batman Returns (4K Ultra HD) Batman Forever (4K Ultra HD)

Batman & Robin (4K Ultra HD) Captain America: Civil War (4K Ultra HD) Captain America: The Winter Soldier (4K Ultra HD)

I’ll withhold comment on that cover artwork which is… not what I’d have chosen, let’s just put it that way.

Given this breaking news, we’ll reschedule today’s usual #RetroReleaseDay post here at The Bits for Thursday.

Stay tuned…
