Batman: Gotham Knight DVD - anime style prequel to Dark Knight. Dir. by Bruce Timm


#1

Here’s some actual info on that leaked Batman anime DVD.


#2

Read this on another forum, I’m 50-50 about but it had better not look like Child of Dreams…


#3

Animation is going to be done by Production I.G. (Kill Bill), Madhouse (Hajime no Ippo, Trigun) and Studio 40c. I don’t think its going to look like Child of Dreams.


#4

Batman?, anime?, azzarello?, rucka?!?!

faints

As much potential the 6 stories have i hope they don’t don’t get ret-conned or swept under the rug by TDK movie cuz i’d love to see some bats-anime comics.

EDIT: i liked child of dreams:sad:


#5

Looks interesting. Hopefully they aren’t too beholden to the conventions established by Batman Begins.


#6

from SMB:

Animated by Production IG and Madhouse, and directed by Bruce Timm? Holy fucking acorns, Batman! I gotta watch that!


#7

Please get Kevin Conroy, please get Kevin Conroy


#8

This is the only post this thread needs.

Child of Dreams was drawn by manga artist Kia Asamiya, who is most recognizable for the Manga/Anime Silent Mobius(the style between the two is really recognizable). Unless she drew the art for this(which I highly doubt), I’m sure the art will look solid. I.G. and Madhouse are top tier, but I never heard of Studio 40c…I would be concerned about that if anything.

+1 for Kevin Conroy please.


#10

Since I think he might be in the DVD, so… please get Mark Hamill, please get Mark Hamill…

EDIT


#11

I wouldn’t be too worried about the studio doing this. I think they’ll do a good job, considering that they are getting a HEFTY budget to work with thanks to Warner Bros.


#12

I’ll be happy as long as it isn’t done by the crews that did Jackie Chan Adventures or Every-woman-looks-like-a-man-and-every-man-looks-gay-on Flux.


#13

Good for you :tup:, I just didn’t like the art it turned me off.


#14

is brian azarello the writer on 100 bullets? for some reason, the name sounds familiar.


#15

Yeah, Azzarello created and writes 100 Bullets.


#16

100 bullets is the truth:tup: i can forgive the art.


#17

This is going to be nice. Can’t wait to see Batman beat up some thugs in anime style.


#18

hmm that is going interesting

Small update

Source: http://www.worldsfinestonline.com/news.php?action=fullnews&id=52

  • The upcoming direct-to-video animated feature Batman: Gotham Knight may be released alongside the upcoming re-release of Batman Begins on DVD.

Warner Home Video recently announced that a new Batman Begins DVD release, called Batman Begins: Ultimate Collector’s Edition, will be released later this year for both standard DVD and Blu-Ray. Rumor has it that the Batman: Gotham Knight DTV DVD release is expected to be released in conjunction with the new Batman Begins: Ultimate Collector’s Edition DVD, though it is currently unconfirmed at this time.

Stay tuned for further updates.*

As long as it is like Fox Batman, has Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, Richard Moll, Efrem Zymbalist (sp?), and Bob Hastings, they are good to go. I dunno just get Dana Delaney or something to do the Rachel Dawes character if it is a direct prequel to Dark Knight.
