Warner Bros., via IGN, has released the first trailer for the animated feature, Batman: Gotham By Gaslight.
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.
Gotham by Gaslight is a DC Comics one-shot by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, with inks by P. Craig Russell. It spawned a sequel, Master of the Future (1991), also written by Augustyn, with art by Eduardo Barreto.
Gotham by Gaslight is considered to be the first Elseworlds story, where DC Comics heroes are taken out of their usual setting and put into alternate timelines or realities. And although it was not originally labelled as such, subsequent printings include the “Elseworlds” logo.
Batman: Gotham By Gaslight will be available digitally and DVD/Blu-ray 2018
