We teased it at the beginning of the month, and now you can watch the brand new Batman short film, entitled Batman: Strange Days, by the legend that is Bruce Timm. The short celebrates 75 years of the DC Comics character, created by Bob Kane in 1939, by showing us a black-and-white adventure very much in the style of a ’30s serial. It’s surprisingly brutal, too, as the long-eared Dark Knight really gives it to Dr. Hugo Strange and his behemoth of a minion. Have a gander.
You can find more videos of this nature on DC’s official YouTube page. As for the short itself, it feels like a throwback and yet somehow brand new. And how nice is it to hear Kevin Conroy’s familiar growl, even if only briefly? Let’s hope we get more shorts of this nature; I’d like to see where it all would go.
