DCAU’s “Gotham By Gaslight” Sneak Peek

The next film in the DC Animated Universe initiative is the unexpected but intriguing adaptation of Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola’s “Batman: Gotham by Gaslight” series.

The one-shot, considered the first of the ‘Elseworlds’ stories which take DC characters out of canon and into alternate timelines or realities, is set in the 1800s and pits the Caped Crusader against Jack the Ripper.

While the film doesn’t have a release date as yet beyond an early 2018 bow, a new featurette is out offering a sneak peek at this adaptation. The clip is included in the new “Batman and Harley Quinn” animated feature which is out now on Digital HD and hits disc and rental next week.
