I know for sure I will be hitting the store as soon as this is released, but will you be picking up the digital copy of the physical media copy? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.


  1. Ohhh, so excited to see this! I’m thinking perhaps they’ll add some more scenes to make it longer? I saw Barbra in her batgirl suit and I don’t remember her being suited up at any time in the comic. I’m excited to see this adaptation. Hopefully I can get my hands on a physical copy, but I might have to hold out and see if Netflix will put it up at some point.
