Batman: Gotham Knight (R2) in July

Warner Home Video have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Batman: Gotham Knight on 14th July 2008 priced at £12.99. From the producers of Batman Begins and the forthcoming Dark Knight comes the interpretation of Batman’s transformation from beginner to Dark Knight. Gotham Knight is six standalone chapters, each with stylish art from some of the world’s greatest animation visionaries, that weave together into a larger story spanning the globe and pit Batman against the fearsome Scarecrow and two villains he’s never faced before: the freakish Killer Croc and the unerring marksman known as Deadshot.
