Storyline

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 Adam

Trivia

On the DVD commentary, Kevin Conroy admits that he had never read about the Dark Knight until he originally auditioned for the part back in 1992 on Batman: the Animated Series. When he was told the back-story of murdered parents and a quest for revenge, Conroy, who was a trained Shakespearean actor, thought they were telling him the story of Hamlet. See more »

Goofs

During the 'Field Test' segment, it is explained that the 'shield' has a highly sensitive sound detector that detects a gunshot and triggers activation of the device. As a bullet travels considerably faster then the sound wave from the gunshot that fired it, this device would be useless. See more »

A well needed batman animated story before the Dark Knight comes out!!
11 July 2008 | by pax03See all my reviews

i knew this wouldn't be anything like the Batman Animated Series BUT all the short stories were well done by some different anime looks and each story was well written and executed. My favorite 2 would have to be the Killer Croc and Scarecrow episode and the last one with the sniper. the music was awesome and I hope the Dark Knight took notice because that score was really catchy and strong. and the animation and storytelling were spot on and the pacing of each one was great. Not too long or too short on any episode. They got Kevin Conroy to voice the batman here and I was really happy with that because I think Conroy is the Voice of Batman in the animated world, no one does it like he does. If you are a batman fan i don't think you will be disappointed if you check it out and see it for yourself. I am and I'm happy I own it now!
