Warner Bros. Animation has shared our first look at the upcoming Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham – releasing on March 28
Warner Bros. Animation has unleashed the first trailer for Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham – the all-new animated feature emerging from beneath the DC “Elseworlds” Umbrella. The movie follows on from DC’s hit Gotham By Gaslight which was a glorious throwback featuring the Dark Knight in the time of Jack the Ripper. And in true Elseworlds fashion, The Doom The Came To Gotham finds Batman thrust into the past to prevent the downfall of Gotham City.
In the film, Batman accidentally unleashes an ancient evil and returns to Gotham after being away for two decades. Batman battles Lovecraftian supernatural forces and encounters allies and enemies such as Green Arrow, Ra’s al Ghul, Mr. Freeze, Killer Croc, Two-Face, and James Gordon. Check out the trailer below:
THE VOICE CAST
Starring alongside David Giuntoli as Batman are Tati Gabrielle as Kai Li Cain, Christopher Gorham as Oliver Queen, John DiMaggio as James Gordon, Patrick Fabian as Harvey Dent, Brian George as Alfred, and Jason Marsden as Dick Grayson and Young Bruce Wayne.
Other members of the cast include Karan Brar as Sanjay “Jay” Tawde; David Dastmalchian as Grendon; Navid Negahban as Ra’s al Ghul; Emily O’Brien as Talia al Ghul and Martha Wayne; Tim Russ as Lucius Fox; Matthew Waterson as Jason Blood/Etrigan; Jeffrey Combs as Kirk Langstrom; William Salyers as Cobblepot; Gideon Adlon as Oracle; and Darin De Paul as Thomas Wayne.
Sam Liu co-directs with Christopher Berkeley (Young Justice). Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) and Kimberly S. Moreau (Legion of Super-Heroes) are producing alongside executive producers Michael Uslan and Sam Register.
This new feature looks impressive but has some big shoes to fill after the success of Gotham By Gaslight. But with David Giuntoli bringing the Dark Knight to life this latest adventure looks like a shoo-in to transport us to a version of Gotham we have never seen before. And with the fate of the city hanging in the balance, the stakes have never been higher! Exciting times are ahead for the DC Universe.
Look for Batman: The Doom that Came To Gotham to release on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and Digital on March 28th.
