‘Batman: Gotham By Gaslight’ Revealed To Be Warner Bros.’ Next Animated, DC Movie

The back cover of the upcoming, animated feature Batman and Harley Quinn has been revealed, and with it comes some interesting information. One of the Special Features reveals that Warner Bros.’ next DC animated movie will be Batman: Gotham by Gaslight.

Batman

For those who don’t know, Brian Augustyn’s and Mike Mignola’s fan-favorite Gotham by Gaslight is considered to be DC’s first “Elseworld” story. Set in 1889, it pits the Dark Knight against Jack the Ripper in a Victorian-era Gotham City.

This is Warner Bros.’ first direct adaptation of an Elseworld tale, and if it performs well, it’s sure to spawn similar movies set in alternate timelines. Such forays into different realities may not even be limited to DC’s animation department, for rumors are still swirling that the studio is trying to get a Superman: Red Son live-action movie off of the ground.

Fans who want a sneak peak of the animated Batman: Gotham by Gaslight will have to make sure to pick up a copy of Batman and Harley Quinn when it’s released on Blu-Ray and DVD on August 15th.

A resident of Gotham City. A graduate of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. A survivor of the Zombie Apocalypse. A Jedi who is one with the Force. Anthony completed his BA and MA in English Literature over in jolly old England - because what better place is there to go to study English than England? An avid pop culture nerd, he is a huge movie buff (and owns almost 1,000 DVDs and BluRays, having underestimated how quickly digital downloads would take off!), comic book fan, and watches way too much T.V. He is also a strong defender of the Oxford Comma.
