Holy box set, Batman! Warner Home Video has announced the caped crusader's four original big-screen adventures are headed to Blu-ray this March.

Dubbed 'Batman: The Motion Picture Anthology,' the five-disc set contains all four of the Batman films made from 1989-1997, including 'Batman,' 'Batman Returns,' 'Batman Forever' and 'Batman & Robin.'

Tech specs will see each feature film receive its own BD-50 dual-layer presentation with 1080p/VC-1 video (1.85:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround tracks.

The full list of extras has not been announced, but it's expected to mirror the previous DVD box set release, including over 18 hours of documentaries, featurettes and profiles, audio commentaries with directors Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher, and 9 music videos.

At press time, Warner has not confirmed any exclusive content, but will keep you posted.

We are also awaiting a final MSRP. Stay tuned.
