DC Entertainment has released a sneek peek for its next animated feature – Batman: Gotham By Gaslight. See how the film came together to bring the Victorian Batman to screen down below.
The video clocks in at 8 & half minutes long and gives us a pretty in depth look at the story of Gotham By Gaslight and how the creators brought the adaptation of the 1980’s comic to life.
Synopsis: 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.
Gotham by Gaslight was a DC Comics one-shot by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola. A sequel was made in 1991 titled Master of the Future which was also written by Augustyn, with art by Eduardo Barreto.
