Next year, Warner Bros. Animation is adapting one of the first DC Elseworlds tales, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, which reimagined Bruce Wayne’s alter-ego in a Victorian steampunk story. Writer Brian Augustyn and artist Mike Mignola pit Batman against the infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper, but this time, Bruce doesn’t have to face him alone. In a newly released trailer for Gotham by Gaslight, Selina Kyle makes it her personal mission to bring down the Ripper. Selina may not be Catwoman in this tale, but she can more than hold her own in a fight. She even makes her own Bat-signal.
IGN debuted the trailer, which offered a glimpse at the changes made to the narrative for this movie, but it seems to be fairly accurate to the original. The trailer even teases the pivotal moment when the Gotham police suspect that Bruce is the Ripper. But unlike the graphic novel, this animated movie is apparently free to use more characters from the Batman mythos. An earlier trailer revealed that Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Hugo Strange, and Pamela Isley (Poison Ivy) exist in this world. And Pamela may even be the Ripper’s victim at the beginning of the new trailer.
Bruce Greenwood leads the voice cast of this film Bruce Wayne and Batman, while Jennifer Carpenter is portraying Selina Kyle and Anthony Head is playing. Alfred Pennyworth. The rest of the cast includes Chris Cox, John DiMaggio, David Forseth, Grey Griffin, Tara Strong, and more. Batman: Gotham by Gaslight is expected to be released in early 2018.
