There are a lot of interpretations on Batman, some are reminiscent of the times we were in when they were made, and some are “What If?” scenarios that we can’t help but think about. Well, one of those scenarios is about to get the DC Comics animated movie treatment, as it has been revealed that Gotham By Gaslight will be the next DCAU film.
Here’s the official synopsis for it:
“In an age of mystery and superstition, how would the people of Gotham react to a weird creature of the night, a bat-garbed vigilante feared by the guilty and the innocent alike? The very first Elseworlds tale re-imagines the Dark Knight detective in Victorian times and pits him against the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper.”
If you don’t know, “Elseworld” is the word used for alternate dimension stories that take the characters of the DC Comics universe and put them into different scenarios. Such as a Victorian-era Batman.
Gotham By Gaslight has captivated fans ever since its release. In fact, a game was almost made for it, and this version of Batman was included in the Infinite Crises MOBA that came out.
The first look at this will be available in the upcoming Batman & Harley Quinn film.
