    With the release of Fox's 1966 Batman: The Movie, it appears that Warner's Batman and Mr. Freeze: Sub Zero is now the only Batman feature not released on DVD.
    Now I know that the idiots at Warner will consider Sub Zero a "family film" and would release it in Pan & Scam, but since this movie was made for home video anyway, I'm not too sure what the OAR was at all (it was originally released on VHS)...
    I liked this one quite a bit. Does anyone know what the OAR was, and if there are any rumors of a DVD release?

    Not sure about the OAR, but World's Finest said not too terribly long ago that "Sub Zero" was a likely 2002 release, according to some source at Warner Bros. or something...

    I just found out that according to the Internet Movie Database, the aspect ratio of Batman and Mr. Freeze: Sub Zero is indeed 1.33:1...so I guess we can get it released, we won't have to complain if it's not anamorphic...
    We should definitely bring up a request for this title at the Warner chat in October!

    The laserdisc version of this film is 1.66:1, not 1.33:1. Perhaps it was filmed in 1.33:1 and framed at 1.66:1.
