Batman: Gotham Knight Anime Announced, Pictures Ensue

Batman: Gotham Knight
Just a couple days ago, Wizard magazine announced the creation of an anime adaptation of the Batman franchise, developed in similar style to the Animatrix feature created to promote The Matrix. DC Comics producer and comic creator Bruce Timms will work alongside Japanese animation studios Studio 4°C (The Animatrix), Production I.G (Ghost in the Shell), and Madhouse (Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust) to create a series of six shorts about the Dark Knight, to be released sometime in the summer of 2008.

Just today, Animation Magazine posted six shots of the film, showing off the new, gritty anime-style Batman character. Have a look at the mouth-wateringly awesome shots yourself, and then you too can wonder why anime and Batman haven’t collided like this until now.
