Fan favorite, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, is getting its own movie adaptation!
Included as one of the special features on the animated feature Batman and Harley Quinn is a sneak peek at the adaptation of the first ever DC Comics Elseworlds story. I managed to stumble across it online, so check it out while you can because there is no guarantee that it will be there for long!
And for those not familiar with the original graphic novel, here is a synopsis:
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.
Batman: Gotham by Gaslight by Brian Augustyn and Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola, was originally released as a one-shot title in 1989. There is no word on when the movie will be released, but it’s looking like 2018. We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
