Batman: Gotham Knight

Batman: Gotham Knight is a 2008 animated direct-to-DVD anthology film of six animated short
films set in-between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. It depicts Batman battling against
the mob of Gotham City, as well as other villains before his fateful meeting with the Joker
although the Producers have acknowledged that it is not meant to be Canon to the
"Nolanverse". The shorts, or segments, are written by Josh Olson, David S. Goyer, Brian
Azzarello, Greg Rucka, Jordan Goldberg and Alan Burnett. Although all based on Japanese
Anime art style, each segment has its own writing and artistic style, just as the works from
the DC Universe, and with the same style of The Animatrix although some segments are
connected.[2][3] The six films all star Kevin Conroy, reprising his role as Batman from
Batman: The Animated Series.

It is similar to another tie-in, The Animatrix, as both are collections of short animated films
relating to their respective series. It is the third in the line of DC Universe Original Animated
Movies released by Warner Premiere and Warner Bros. Animation; with the first two releases
being Superman: Doomsday, Justice League: The New Frontier, and the next release
following will be Wonder Woman. It is rated PG-13 for stylized violence, including some bloody
images,[4], but it is not the first animated Batman film to be rated PG-13 (that claim goes to
the uncut version of Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker). This film is notable for being the
first DC Original Animated movie to have a connection with another Batman medium. While
Superman: Doomsday and Justice League: The New Frontier have been released in the United
Kingdom with a 12 rating, Batman: Gotham Knight is being accompanied with a 15 certificate
for "images of bloody violence and injury". The film aired on Cartoon Network on October 4,
2008 at 9:00 pm with a TV-14-V rating and an exclusive parental warning after each
commercial break, with a few of the more graphic scenes cut.
