Gotham By Gaslight Blu-Ray Release Date and Special Features Revealed

  • Cinelinx
With a trailer to give fans a look at the upcoming Elseworlds animated Batman adventure, WB Animation has announced when fans will be able to get the Gotham By Gaslight blu-ray, along with all the special features coming with it. Come inside for all the details!

DC's Animated films are almost always a lot of fun to watch. Some of my favorites, however, are the ones that eschew the Animated Universe continuinty in favor of something different (like Gods and Monsters). As such, I'm really excited to see how Batman: Gotham By Gaslight turns out. It sees a different Batman take on Jack the Ripper in a turn of the century Gotham.

It's a neat concept, and worked great in the comics. Let's just hope the same magic works in the animated film when it releases on February 6, 2018:

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight Box Art And Release Date Revealed

Each year, the fine folks at Warner Bros. Animation serve up a handful of films based on DC properties and, more often than not, they knock it out of the park. Not only that, but a significant portion of the fanbase argues that they’re superior to what’s offered in the live action realm. And, to be completely honest, I have to concede in most cases.

Having said that, the trend looks to continue in 2018 with Batman: Gotham by Gaslight leading the charge. First revealed to us via a sneak peek included on the Batman and Harley Quinn Blu-ray release, it boasts a Dark Knight unlike anything we’ve seen outside of the comic books.

For those unfamiliar, Gotham by Gaslight was originally published in 1989 and ended up starting the “Elseworlds” line of books. Written by Brian Augustyn and drawn by Mike Mignola, it followed the exploits of a Batman residing in the 1800’s,

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight release date, synopsis and special features revealed

A few days ago we got a look at the first trailer for Batman: Gotham By Gaslight, the upcoming animated adaptation of Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola’s 1989 Elseworlds tale, and now Warner Bros. has unveiled the official synopsis and details of the bonus features for the next entry in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line.

Batman: Gotham By Gaslight takes place at the turn of the century as America’s continued industrial revolution is to be showcased at a World’s Fair hosted by Gotham City. But while the world prepares to witness the glittery glory of Gotham’s technological advances, there is a killer loose in the city’s darkest shadows. Preying on the city’s women, this killer is as precise as he is cruel. As Police Commissioner James Gordon tries to calm the fears of Gotham’s citizens regarding the butcher called Jack the Ripper,

New Justice League Promo Explores Aquaman’s Comic Book Origins

While we’re fully well aware that the wait for Justice League is arguably harder to endure now more than ever due to opening weekend being merely nine days away, the folks at Warner Bros. marketing are at least helping us pass the time.

As was to be expected, there have been a select few who have already had the privilege of seeing the silver screen debut of DC’s premier superhero team, be they critics or casual moviegoers that happened to have lucked into viewing an early screening. From that, varying opinions have since found their way online, with some claiming that Batman and Wonder Woman were the standout characters, while others felt the Flash stole the show. Not having seen the film myself, I’m in no place to argue, but if such praise is aiding the Flashpoint movie in being green lit, well, then I’m all for it.

Exclusive Preview: Not All Is What It Seems In Scooby Apocalypse #19

So far, it’s been a pretty good week for those of you who enjoy both Scooby-Doo and DC Comics. Just days ago, we learned that our favorite Great Dane will soon take part in an animated crossover film with a freshly resurrected Batman: The Brave and the Bold and, today, we’re proud to bring you this exclusive first look inside the next issue of Scooby Apocalypse.

In my view, I think this particular series has flourished and seen longevity beyond that of the other recent Hanna-Barbera revivals because it’s been able to appeal to multiple areas of fandom. Sure, Apocalypse may be a radical reimagining of the cartoon we grew up loving, but the camaraderie of the gang and many of the intrinsic aspects remain. Okay, the cast often fights, but that’s to be expected in extreme situations.

First Trailer For Scooby-Doo! And Batman: The Brave And The Bold Debuts

When Batman: The Brave and the Bold debuted on Cartoon Network back in 2008, many fans were understandably hesitant when it came to seeing a lighter take on the Caped Crusader than had been witnessed in animation for some time. But lo and behold, said animated series found much success throughout the course of its three seasons by retaining the tongue-in-cheek nature of the TV show starring Adam West and utilizing the vastness of the DC Universe in a way similar to Justice League Unlimited. Really, it’s no wonder why some felt it rivaled Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond in terms of quality.

Since its cancellation in 2011, none of us thought we’d ever be seeing the Hammers of Justice again, especially since no direct-to-video movie swiftly followed the series finale. Now, six years later, the folks at Warner Bros. Animation have decided to dust off the franchise

Elongated Man Debuts In New Images From The Flash

So far, the latest season of The Flash hasn’t wasted any time when it comes to introducing more heroes and villains culled from the DC Universe, with the likes of the Thinker and Hazard already putting in appearances. But next week, we’ll be treated to what may be one of the more memorable debuts to be seen this year when Hartley Sawyer makes his first appearance as Ralphy Dibny Aka the Elongated Man.

What’s especially exciting about this is that “Elongated Journey Into Night” will be the first time the character of Dibny will have ever been seen in live action. Previously, he’s appeared on animated favorites such as Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and the Bold, but you have to admit there’s something special about seeing flesh and blood actors embodying beloved superheroes.

Exclusive Preview: The Kamandi Challenge #10 Unleashes The Beasts

No matter your age, anyone who has delved into comic book collecting has no doubt heard the name of Jack “The King” Kirby. Aside from having worked on Marvel properties such as Captain America, the Fantastic Four and the Avengers in their earliest of days, the legendary writer/artist also made some valuable contributions to DC by creating Darkseid and the New Gods. Fortunately for us, another one of his brainchildren most beloved by readers was recently revived in the form of The Kamandi Challenge.

For those unfamiliar, Kamandi, “The Last Boy on Earth,” pretty much functioned as DC’s answer to Planet of the Apes when it originally arrived on the scene decades ago. But instead of having only talking apes ruling the Earth, other animals evolved physically and intellectually as well, most notably tigers. And in the time since, Kamandi has experienced some exposure in other media, more specifically in the animated series,

Batman: The Animated Series Finally Comes To Blu-Ray In 2018

Even though we have 78 years of comics and a healthy amount of films featuring the Caped Crusader to look back on, there are many fans out there who feel that Batman: The Animated Series was the definitive portrayal of the character. And while I do appreciate many other versions, it’s hard to argue that point due to it retaining the spirit of the source material, while also building its own legacy. Not only that, but it also it was the first place where Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill voiced Batman and the Joker, respectively, whom have both since played those characters in a variety of other projects in the 25 years to follow.

So, if you fancy yourself as a lover of this series, then you, like me, probably own every episode on DVD. Still, there are those who’ve been clamoring for a Blu-ray upgrade for years, only to

The Flash: The Complete Third Season Blu-Ray Review

Even though it obviously wasn’t the first show birthed by what we now refer to as the “Arrowverse,” many of you out there could probably make a solid argument for The Flash being the pinnacle of DC TV. Personally, I dig Arrow above all others, but I’d have to be pretty dense not to see what’s great about the Scarlet Speedster’s latest run on the small screen.

While the hit CW series is in no way a carbon copy of the comic books that have inspired it, one of its greatest strengths is that it fully embraces its source material, unabashedly tackling the fantastical with each episode. And, from the beginning, that becomes apparent with the season 3 premiere, “Flashpoint.”

It’s important to note that if you were expecting a straight up adaptation of Geoff Johns’ modern classic of the same name, you’re not going

Exclusive: Batman: The Animated Series star Loren Lester on returning as Nightwing in Batman and Harley Quinn

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Josh Wilding

Batman and Harley Quinn is the latest animated movie from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment and in case the title didn’t make it clear, it pairs up the Dark Knight with the Maid of Mischief for an adventure which also throws Nightwing into the mix.

In the movie, a looming global catastrophe forces the two heroes mentioned above to partner with Harley in an adventure full of unexpected twists and turns and stellar action.

We recently had the chance to sit down with Loren Lester, an actor who will be instantly familiar to fans of the groundbreaking Batman: The Animated Series. It was in that he voiced Nightwing and he’s since lent his voice to everything from The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and Batman: Arkham Knight.

However, his most famous role remains Dick Grayson/Robin/Nightwing and

If you’ve been following comic book related news even if only in the slightest this week, then you’re likely aware of the bombshell that DC dropped in Batman #24. Had you not, then you’re about to be brought up to speed. Long story short, after decades of courtship, the Dark Knight actually got down on one knee and proposed to his sometimes lover and partner in vigilantism, Catwoman.

Now, some diehard fans have been quick to point out that this has happened before, but they’re both right and wrong. In the past, the two icons have gotten married, but those instances were on another Earth, often leading to the conception of Helena Wayne/Huntress. This has actually carried over into other media, influencing the ill-fated Birds of Prey television series as well as a
