DC's Animated Batman Movie Gotham By Gaslight Gets New Clip

"The Bat ain't real. He's like Santa Claus."


Although DC's live-action superhero universe has had some ups-and-downs over the past few years, the studio's stable of animated features is going strong. The latest title to be released will be Batman: Gotham By Gaslight. It arrives on home entertainment formats later this month, and a new clip has been released.

The feature is based on Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola's classic 1989 graphic novel, and is set in an alternative DC universe. In a Victorian-era Gotham City, Bruce Wayne has been falsely blamed for the crimes of Jack the Ripper, and, as Batman, hunts the real Ripper. In this clip, three young street thieves come to face-to-face with the Dark Knight. Check it out below:

This clip follows the first Gotham By Gaslight trailer, which was released in November. Like 2016's animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke, it carries an R-rating. And as with The Killing Joke, this latest release takes some liberties with the source material. While the graphic novel only featured a few other characters from the Batman universe, the movie introduces a host of classic villains, including Selina Kyle, Poison Ivy, Harvey Dent, Harvey Bullock, Leslie Tompkins, Hugo Strange, and Solomon Grundy.

Bruce Greenwood (Gerald's Game) reprises his Young Justice role as Bruce Wayne. He's joined by Dexter alum Jennifer Carpenter, who voices Selina Kyle, Scott Patterson (Gilmore Girls) as James Gordon, and Anthony Head (Buffy, the Vampire Slayer) as Alfred Pennyworth.

Gotham By Gaslight is released digitally on January 23, 2018, with Ultra HD Blu-ray Combo Packs, Blu-ray Combo Packs, and DVDs hitting stores on February 6. Digital copies, as well as the combo packs, will include an audio commentary, along with a featurette that goes behind the scenes of creating a 19th century gothic-inspired Gotham City.
