To commemorate the film's 25th anniversary, Fathom Events has theatrically re-released the animated feature "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm", directed by Eric Radomski and Bruce Timm, as a cinematic continuation of "Batman: The Animated Series":

"That night, in one of his first crime-fighting attempts, Bruce foils an armored car robbery, but is discouraged because the criminals did not 'fear' him. 

"Eventually, Bruce decides to abandon his plans to become a vigilante and proposes marriage to Andrea. However, Andrea mysteriously leaves Gotham with her father, businessman 'Carl Beaumont', ending her engagement in a 'Dear John' letter. 

"Believing he has lost his last chance of having a normal life, Bruce becomes 'Batman'.

"Ten years later, Batman confronts a group of 'Gotham City' crime bosses led by 'Chuckie Sol', who are intending to launder millions of counterfeit dollars in a casino. 

"As Sol escapes to his car, a cloaked figure attacks him. Sol is then killed when the figure causes him to drive out the side of a parking garage and crash into a neighboring building. 

"Batman arrives soon after, and bystanders blame him for Sol's death. Councilman 'Arthur Reeves' tells the media that Batman is a menace, despite the protests of 'Commissioner Gordon'..."
