Eww that cover art is pretty shitty. I was hoping for something a little more adult looking to separate it from the legions of other Batman animation.

I looked it up on IMDb and there's one coming to DVD. I assume it's animated like this one...

Yeah, the Wonder Woman film mentioned with be another Direct-to-DVD animated project. Keri Russell will play the voice of Wonder Woman and Nathan Fillion is Steve Trevor.

I think he said that because Batman is randomly smiling/grimacing on the cover and his teeth are blindingly white, which does look very odd.

I'm in for the Blu-ray edition, along with the Blu edition of Batman Begins, which is coming out on the same day. I took a look at the trailer for Gotham Knight on Warner's official site, and the animation style looks pretty good. Should be enjoyable.

There is more than one animation style- there are six. There are six shorts each by a different director, much like The Animatrix.

If you have Comcast On Demand one of the episodes is on there. It's called "Field Test" and it's voiced by Kevin Conroy.

Haing just watched it I can say that it is a pretty good film. Now the Animatrix worked well as each film separately, while Gotham Knight works better as a whole. Kind of begs the question, why didn't they just release it as a whole? Most of the animation is similar to the next outside of the first story "I have a Story for You", which features some wild anime animation and the one with Scarecrow n Killer Croc, which has a gritty animated style (one of m fav episodes).

Gotham Knight continues themes and ideas from Batman Begins. I have a suspicion that after seeing The Dark Knight, this will appear better in hindsight, almost as a 'trilogy'. Only two of the six are purely action oriented, but the themes are worth exploring, most likely setting up some ideas that will be explored in TDK.

If you are planning on getting this, I'd say get the 2-disc/blu ray set because the extra which chronciles Bob Kane is worth it to me. Well produced and featuring rare interviews with Kane, it's a nice addition to having all these Batman DVDs (it's 34 mins long). The other extra talks about his Rogues Gallery (30 mins long too) and is an interesting discussion but one that's common sense to true Batman fans. Also there's a pretty good peek at Woman Wonder and Bruce Timm's picks of his fav Animated episodes (they appear to be the same transfers as the shows previosly released).

Film: B
DVD extras: B-

Another recommendation here. The first three are okay, but the last three are really, really good.

SteelBook at BB gets my $$.

the 2-disc SD has the Wonder Woman, Villians and Bob Kane extras too right? and would it be a good idea to watch Batman Begins prior to B:GK?

Watching Begins first isn't a necessity, I would think. Some of the stories kinda follow what happened there, but you won't be completely lost.

But it is a great movie though.
