Did You Know?


Back when he produced "Batman: The Animated Series", Bruce Timm had always wanted to set the series in 1939, using retro-technology, old fashioned automobiles, hard-boiled film noir characters, vintage clothing etc. While he did get to do that on his series, and give it a timeless quality, in this short, he has quite possibly, got to make his definitive Batman story set in 1939 (after over 20 years of working on the character in various mediums).

Batman Strange Days: Batman film noir
1 February 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Strange Days is an unexpected 3 minute Batman short featuring Kevin Conroy as the titular hero.

What makes it stand out from the rest is the fact its film in a retro black and white method with a real film noir feel.

Batman must come to the aid of a traditional damsel in distress who has been kidnapped by Hugo Strange and his minion Solomon Grundy.

Though it is fleeting the 3 minutes time is used well and felt like an old school Mickey Mouse cartoon, just less exaggerated.

Highly novel but I'd have rather have seen more.

The Good:

Has real novelty value

Really original effort

The Bad:

Grundy looks weird

3 minutes really limits it

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Batman doesn't kill, but he'll happily allow a person to fall to their death
