The “Death in the Family” storyline rocked the world of DC Comics in the 1980s. After Dick Grayson decided to retire as Robin and become Nightwing, Batman found a new ward to replace him named Jason Todd. But Jason’s Robin proved to be deeply unpopular with readers, and eventually the decision was made to put his fate in the hands of comics fans. Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is now turning “Death in the Family” into one of their animated DC movies — and they’ve arrived at a very clever way to adapt that choose-Robin’s-fate gimmick. Batman: Death in the Family will be an interactive cartoon, allowing viewers to choose not only whether Robin lives or dies, but how he survives — either by escaping on his own, or with the help of Batman. The choices viewers make will impact the story they see play out in the film.
