Anime-inspired direct-to-DVD anthology film. Comprised of six short stories, from diverse creators, including Academy Award-nominated Josh Olsen (A History of Violence), Batman Begins writer David S. Goyer, and comics scribe Brian Azzarello. It's planned for a release window of two to four weeks prior to the release of The Dark Knight, and would bridge the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
Warner Home Video has been hard at work establishing a web presence for Batman: Gotham Knight. First, the official website for the film has been updated. Additionally, a MySpace and Facebook site have been created for the film as well.
All three websites feature a new trailer for the direct-to-DVD animated feature that serves as a bridge between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. And you can see the trailer below as well!Read More
Kevin Conroy had studied for and starred on the stage, advanced his career through soap operas, and was featured in television series like Dynasty and Tour of Duty.
