Up first, the newly released international teaser poster for the film.
I think this poster is remarkable. Very visually stunning and captures the whole "Bruce Wayne/Batman One Man Fighting For Gotham" vibe the is always an undertone of a good Batman story.
Next, it's news about a DVD hitting stores this summer around the same time the new film is in theaters.
Rumored to be titled Batman: Gotham Knight, the DVD will be a collection of 6 animated shorts the compliment or possibly lead into Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight.
From the story I read, the animation should be top notch, but what has me excited about this project is the list of writers attached:
1. Brian Azzarello, comic book writer (100 Bullets, Batman: Broken City)Except for Mr. Goldberg and Mr. Olson, I have read and thoroughly enjoyed the works of all these writers, so already things are looking good. Then considering the projects cited for Mr. Goldberg and Mr. Olson and I begin thinking this DVD will be a "must-have" for me this summer.
2. David S. Goyer, comic/screenwriter (Batman Begins)
3. Greg Rucka, comic book writer/novelist (Batman, Gotham Central, 52)
4. Jordan Goldberg, producer (The Prestige, The Dark Knight)
5. Josh Olson, screenwriter (A History of Violence)
6. Alan Burnett, writer/producer (Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Batman: TAS, Batman Beyond)
