There's a mystery afoot in Gotham City, and Batman must go toe-to-toe with a mysterious vigilante, who goes by the name of Red Hood. Subsequently, old wounds reopen and old, once buried memories come into the light.
Batman discovers a mysterious teen-aged girl with super-human powers and a connection to Superman. When the girl comes to the attention of Darkseid, the evil overlord of Apokolips, events take a decidedly dangerous turn.
Batman has not been seen for ten years. A new breed of criminal ravages Gotham City, forcing 55-year-old Bruce Wayne back into the cape and cowl. But, does he still have what it takes to fight crime in a new era?
When LexCorps accidentally unleash a murderous creature, Doomsday, Superman meets his greatest challenge as a champion. Based on the "The Death of Superman" storyline that appeared in DC Comics' publications in the 1990s.
In this 6-story anthology collection, Batman faces new villains and old ones in a time-line after Batman Begins. In "Have I Got A Story For You", 3 kids tell wildly different stories about Batman during a fight through Gotham. "Crossfire" focuses on two policemen who end up getting in the middle of a crime battle. "Field Test" has Lucius Fox creating a new technology for Batman, but is it too powerful? "In Darkness Dwells" features Killer Croc and Scarecrow, who have kidnapped a priest. "Working Through Pain" goes through flashbacks of Bruce Wayne's training while Batman finds his way through the sewers. Finally, "Deadshot" focuses on the titular sniper, who has a new target in Gotham. Written by
According to Conroy on the DVD commentary, when they originally did Batman: the Animated Series, they recorded the voices first, and then did the animation. However, for this project, the animation was already done, and the actors had to match their voices with what was seen on the screen. See more »
Even though this film is intended to act as a loose bridge between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, during the period when Wayne Manor is being rebuilt, the final segment, "Deadshot," shows Bruce Wayne and Alfred living in the manor. See more »
This video proves to be almost an equal to Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1994) With the voice of batman being the same, which was a huge plus for me, this new animatrix like video really brings a spark to a very dreary area of batman at the moment (animation) I think this would suffice as a new animated series on a television channel such as spike or a late night TV program like adult swim. With the violence being better than the animated series these are the only places I could see this show fitting in. Definitely worth buying if you like batman. Worth seeing if you have any interest in anime, comics, or batman. Each short story put together make an epic single story that is mesmerizing in all its entirety. After watching it once I watched it for a second time in the same week. My favorite episode would have to be the final 6th episode about deadshot. I really hope they make another one of these DVDs or consider a TV series.
