Batman Gotham Knight, the third release in the DC Universe Animated Original Movie series from DC Comics, will hit stores on July 8 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc, as well as OnDemand and Pay-per-View, Warner Bros. announced today.
Most important to Batman fans, though: Kevin Conroy, the benchmark by which fans compare all Batman voices, returns to the title role.
Batman Gotham Knight is a fresh entry into the Batman mythos, with a cross section of distinguished creators, award-winning producers and acclaimed writers weaving six interlocking stories that reveal Bruce Wayne’s journey to The Dark Knight.
Each of the short stories has stylish art from some of the world’s most revered animation visionaries — and we’ve got the first stills below.
In addition to Conroy, Batman Gotham Knight also features voice-over artists Corey Burton, Rob Paulsen, Kevin Michael Richardson, Will Friedle, Jason Marsden, Jim Meskimen, Pat Musick, Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Corey Padnos and Crystal Scales.
Batman Gotham Knight will be available on DVD for $19.98. There will also be a 2-disc Special Edition DVD available for $29.98 that contains more than 100 minutes of bonus features plus four bonus episodes. All the content from the 2-disc Special Edition DVD will be available on Blu-ray Disc for $34.99.
