Cool Videos: Animated Batman vs. The Terminator!
So, this is pretty cool. Animator Mitchell Hammond has created a very cool animated short, simply titled Batman vs. The Terminator, based on a concept Tony Guerrero. Showing the Caped Crusader in similar garb to his The Dark Knight Returns outfit and utilizing a similar tank-like Batmobile, the story takes place in the same universe as that of THE TERMINATOR, particularly the future. It's a clever, action-filled short that makes good use of the setting and shows a lot of potential for a longer piece. I would definitely watch a feature-length version of this.
Take a look:
Here's the synopsis:
30 years have passed since Bruce Wayne survived Skynet's nuclear blasts in August of '97. Iron demons now roam the planet, and without the requirement to defend the innocent against crime and injustice, Wayne has seeked refuge in the bomb shelter that saved his life; the Batcave.
Having scavenged the wasteland for resources, he discovers the radio of a dead soldier. There is static over a frequency. Flesh and blood is rising up to the west. With The Stinger; a riot control vehicular unit built before the apocalypse along with a refitted bomb blast vest, Batman makes his way across what remains of the United States to join forces with the man determined to neutralize the electronic menace - John Conner.
