A teaser to the upcoming animated Batman DVD ‘Batman Gotham Knight’  has popped up online causing quite a stir for Batman and anime fans alike. The movie is being released on DVD two to four weeks before summer blockbuster ‘The Dark Knight’ is released in Irish cinemas. The DVD will bridge the gap between ’Batman Begins ‘ and ‘The Dark Knight’ and is part of a viral campaign for the new Batman movie ‘The Dark Knight. This ten minute trail (below) offers stills, clips and background info to the animated movie ‘Batman Gotham Knight’.


The DVD will feature a series of interlocking animated shorts that take place before the start of the highly anticipated summer blockbuster. It is designed to be both a stand alone project for animation fans and, according to DC comics, as an opporuntity to enhance the back-story to the upcoming live-action film.


Various high profile anime directors have been linked to the project including Academy Award-nominated Josh Olsen (A History of Violence), Batman Begins writer David S. Goyer, and comics scribe Brian Azzarello. The clip also shows a variety of Batman Villains, including a pretty cool rehash of Deadshot.
