According to The Hollywood Reporter, on the heels of the theatrical success of Batman Begins and the birth of a new bat franchise, Warner Home Video said Tuesday that it will release a series of two-disc special editions of the four original Batman movies from the late 1980s and '90s.

Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin will be released Oct. 18. They will be available individually and as a gift set, Batman: The Motion Picture Anthology 1989-1997.

Each special-edition DVD features a new digital transfer of the movie. Bonus features include director commentaries by Joel Schumacher and Tim Burton, cast and crew interviews, several new documentaries, making of featurettes and nine music videos from Prince, Seal and the Smashing Pumpkins.
