Originaly posted July 8, 2008 on Multiply

The Dark Knight swing into action on July 17, 2008. But along with the long awated sequel, DC and WB is releasing "BATMAN: GOTHAM KNIGHT".The release coveres six stories in the life of Batman[Bruce Wayne] in between the Batman Begins leading up to The Dark Knight. The project can be pralleled to the "Animatrix" [ the tie-ins to the the Matrix Trilogy.] The producers take the same route taken by the Wachosky bros. by taking different writers and producers ang giveng them free reign on their interpretaion of Batman. Marketing stunt or pure art...? Who knows, ill be putting in my two cents or 1000php when this comes out... id love to get this on blue ray[but i dont have a BR player so F*** that!]

Heres a Chapter-by-Chapter Synopsis of the movies to wet your appetite.

In “Have I Got a Story for You,” Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Josh Olson (“A History of Violence”) tells the story of how chance encounters with Batman by a group of youngsters leave each kid with a very different impression of the Dark Knight.

In “Crossfire,” acclaimed novelist/comics writer Greg Rucka tells the story of Gotham City police having to get over their distrust of Batman – while under fire from the mob.

In “Field Test,” writer Jordan Goldberg showcases the incredible high-tech arsenal Batman commands and reveals that there are some things even Batman won’t do in his pursuit of justice.

“In Darkness Dwells” takes Batman into the Gotham sewers to face “Killer Croc,” a deformed thug who seems even more monstrous after the Scarecrow, and his fear toxin, makes a resurgence, in a story by David S. Goyer, co-screenwriter of “Batman Begins.”

Award-winning comics writer Brian Azzarello explores an early chapter of Bruce Wayne’s training in “Working Through Pain,” showing how a mysterious and exotic Indian woman named Cassandra introduced Batman to techniques that would help him to conquer the physical and spiritual consequences of what he does.

Finally, in “Deadshot,” four-time Emmy Award-winning writer Alan Burnett ties together threads from all the Batman Gotham Knight chapters, as Batman must thwart an unerring assassin whose love of guns and disregard for human life lets him cross lines that even a Dark Knight shies away from.

That should get you going... heres the website, lots of fun.

Stay tuned for my review when this comes out!
