Wait did they have this idea way back in Batman Beyond or they just designed two parents as redheads and gave their kids both black hair? Unless there was some crazy planning ahead at the start, that is a pretty funny design mistake.
I think it may have been planned for the start. As the creators even said that Bruce had already found out about the Terry being his biological son thing around the middle of the series. He just kept it to himself, as he did not feel like things should change between him and Terry, and out of respect for Warren.

Isn't that just fanon?

No the creator even said it. They got back on better terms by the time the series started however.

It's probably just a coincidence and not anything they really meant to hint at.



Tuxedo Mask, staring into space as the realization hits him: "Wait a minute...neither I nor Sailor Moon have pink hair...something's not right here..."

The manga/anime series Saiki K has a thing where the main character is a super powerful psychic with pink hair in a world where people have normal hair color. So in order to fit in he used his psychic powers to change everyone in the world's DNA so that weird hair colors are naturally occurring. (The premise of the series is that the main character is incredibly powerful but doesn't actually want to use his powers to do anything but live a normal life with the conflict being him dealing with weirdos in school/at home.)

Ehhhhhh. They made an attempt at an art style, but something about the entire trailer feels off to me.

Alan Tudyk makes me wish more people would just try and have a performance as the Joker rather than go for Hamill soundalike.

The art... it's growing on me. I find myself enjoying it.


Well, hopefully they end it one epilogue before the comic does. As for the style, that beginning part with Batman and Harvey in the warehouse looked kinda bad, but I thought the rest looked pretty nice.

Itís no Tim Sale art style thatís for sure. Shadows need to be all black, a void needs to be swallowing half the screen. Movement is also very minimal.

Plus the way Sale did faces is really great, this has none of that. Oh well, canít say I expected any different.

Letís just take a moment to appreciate Saleís art.

I absolutely love heavy shadows like Sale and Mignola (and to a lesser extent, Kirby) do. I would love to see it in motion, but I'm also not sure how well it'd translate over? Still, they could at least try.

Check out this clip from In Darkness Dwells: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qkwDCV41zN8

Of course thatís from Madhouse, one of the best animation studios on the planet (or at least it was back when that was made.)

Also anything from Takeshi Koike like Fujiko Mine or Redline.

Ooh, ok, yeah. I was thinking that Sale or Mignola might become a bit of a mess in motion, but looking at that I think you could probably put some more shadows in there and it'd still work great.

Mignola looks pretty good animated and in motion.

Holy poo poo, that looks good. Ok, I'm well sold on seeing more of that in animation.

Also, holy poo poo, Paul Giamatti. That just feels right with Mignola.

It's a fun little thing, it's about twenty minutes long. It was meant as a pilot but didn't get picked up.

If you look around you can find the full thing pretty easily.

I liked Gotham Knight a lot. Even the story with bishonen Bruce was fun to watch. Makes me want DC to put out more anthology type stuff for the greater universe without strictly sticking to one style.

Green Lantern: Emerald Knights was a lot of fun. I hoped after that and Gotham Knights they'd give us more anthology stuff but nope.

They could do a fun Amazon based anthology film, I think.

I feel like every franchise only gets one anime compilation film. Star Wars is getting its due soon. You'd think DC could drop the cash to get an anime studio like TMS to do all their animated adaptions but I suppose they've figured out the less competent studios elsewhere are a better deal and most people don't notice animation quality enough for it to matter. Gotham Knight was ostensibly connected to the Nolan Batman films so I think that's why it got the bigger budget.

Yeah, that trailer is disappointing. Oh, well. Just what I expected from DC.
