Bat-fans should be excited to know that they'll get more than just THE DARK KNIGHT this summer -- an anime-themed project called BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT (more details HERE) will descend upon DVD players at the same time.

A 10-minute behind-the-scenes reel has found its way online, and should give a thrill to anyone who craves more of the cowled crimefighter. Looks like he'll be facing foes from the comic pages, including Deadshot, Killer Croc, Scarecrow, not to mention plenty of thugs and gangsters (and did I see Man-Bat in there?). Pretty sweet. Catch it while you can...

I think it looks awesome. But I also think the villian designs aren't really that great, what they've shown so far. Either way, I'm gonna check this out, great creative team behind this..

Looks Different

Batman is my favorite comic hero and this looks to be a whole different avenue to explore this cool mythos. I'm all about new experiences.

I always thought that this is how they should film DC's Sandman; get a different animator to adapt each issue in their own style...then air it on Showtime and/or sell it on DVD.

About time!

I think this is one of the smartest things the DC universe has ever done. I mean it's a win win situation, Batman alone is amazing, and Anime is animation at it's best. Put the two together and you have a masterpiece. This will be fantastic. Purchase is a must! Plus it will really pump me up for THE DARK KNIGHT! can't wait.

TDK 1.5?

I saw the clip for this yesterday and they said it will tie in Batman Begins with The Dark Knight film, they look pretty cool, I think their doing what they did for the Matrix Films with Animatrix, but still these anime/manga films are pretty cool, the reinvetion of the villains in these stories aren't that cool, I thought, but still looks great, I'll buy it.

Looks Strange

I like the idea of it, but some of the designs of Batman are not exactly what I would expect. I can't wait to see it thought. Anything Batman is good for me

continuity?

This looks awesome and it will be a definite purchase for me, the only question is what direct ties does this have with the Nolan films?

I remember reading some where that this anime would be based in the more "reality" universe like Batman Begins, but not directly linked to the films. If someone could shed some light on that it would be great.

Maybe one of the episodes is an episode that deals with a story arc connecting Begins and Dark Knight.

I'm happy that they got Bruce Time and the DC Universe Production team to help them, but for some reason I think Chris and Jonah Nolan should have worked on this Anime you know there interpatation of the villians, ahh who cares, its ok this is going to be awasome! And Croc looks fuged up!WOW! The episode with Deadshot looks pretty sweet.
