Until ‘Wonder Woman,’ the only DC films truly worth watching in recent years has been their amazing animated ones, and now we’ve learned that Warner Brothers is bringing us another in ‘Batman: Gotham By Gaslight’! With ‘Batman and Harley Quinn‘ not yet out, it is a bit surprising, in a good way, that we hear about the film so early and it sounds like one to be excited for.
Jennifer Carpenter (‘Dexter’) had announced earlier this year that she would be doing voice work as Catwoman for an upcoming film by the same name. Catwoman wasn’t in the original story arc that this is being based off of so we’ll be seeing some alterations to the plot but with Catwoman currently stealing the spotlight as Bruce’s true love and wife to be, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we’d be seeing her pop up in other mediums.
The synopsis for the film is below:
In an age of mystery and superstition, how would the people of Gotham react to a weird creature of the night, a bat-garbed vigilante feared by the guilty and the innocent alike? The very first Elseworlds tale reimagines the Dark Knight detective in Victorian times and pits him against the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper.
There’s no word as to the inclusion of Catwoman in the synopsis, but it wouldn’t be that much of a stretch to make it happen. This could quickly turn into a two-film release as well as the original one shot had a sequel in 1991 titled ‘Master of the Future.’
