Just ahead of the Washington, DC premiere, Warner Bros. Animation has released a new clip from the ‘Batman: Gotham By Gaslight’ film.
The clip, which you can watch below, features three street rats attempting to rob innocent citizens…until Batman emerges from the shadows to save the day!
As the clip goes on, we hear the familiar names: Dicky, Jason, and Little Tim. DC Comics fans will recognize those as the names of Batman’s first three Robins. Damian Wayne had not yet been created when ‘Gotham by Gaslight’ was written as a comic book.
This clip also features Big Bill hiding in the shadows nearby and seems to set up the clip released last week that featured Batman squaring off with the man.
Inspired by the creation of Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, ‘Batman: Gotham By Gaslight’ takes place at the turn of the century as America’s continued industrial revolution is to be showcased at a World’s Fair hosted by Gotham City. However, while the world prepares to witness the glory of Gotham’s technological advances, there is a killer loose hiding in the shadows of the city.
Preying on the city’s women, this killer is as precise as he is cruel. As Police Commissioner James Gordon tries to calm the fears of Gotham’s citizens regarding the butcher called Jack the Ripper, Batman indulges in his own detective work, with the help of Selina Kyle, to stop the Ripper’s murderous bender.
‘Batman: Gotham by Gaslight’ is directed by Sam Liu and stars Bruce Greenwood as Bruce Wayne. Jennifer Carpenter co-stars in the film as Selina Kyle. The movie, based on DC’s first Elseworlds graphic novel, will be available on-demand on January 23, 2018, and on Blu-Ray February 6. Currently, you can pre-order the film for 32% off.
