DC’s New Animated Film Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Receives Gruesome Trailer (VIDEO)
DC isn’t shy about creating alternative versions of their characters and as we already know one of their most widely altered heroes is the Batman. We’ve seen Bruce Wayne’s alter ego through several different lights in the past, but one of the more unique takes on the superhero mythos is DC’s newest animated film Gotham By Gaslight. Taking place in a turn-of-the-century Gotham City, the story follows a steampunk-inspired Batman who must use his detective / punching skills to hunt down infamous murderer Jack the Ripper.
While Ben Affleck is putting on the Batman brood in the live-action Justice League, the Gaslight Dark Knight will be instead be played by Bruce Greenwood, reprising his Bat-role from Young Justice. Other stars lending their voice include Jennifer Carpenter as the whip-savvy Selina Kyle, Scott Patterson as the grizzled James Gordon, and Anthony Head as Bruce’s trusty butler Alfred Pennyworth. Veteran voice actors Yuri Lowenthal, John DiMaggio, William Salyers, and Tara Strong are also providing their vocal talents in various roles. Check out the trailer below:
Based on the original 1989 story by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, Batman: Gotham By Gaslight is set to arrive on digital stores January 23rd, 2018, while physical DVD, Blu-Ray, and Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Packs will follow on February 6th. Special features include audio commentary and a “making of” featurette that goes into the creation of a Victorian-era Gotham City.
