Batman: Strange Days – 75th Anniversary Short

Batman - Bruce Timm
It’s been ten years since we last had the pleasure of seeing an animated Batman project in the style of Batman: The Animated Series, a decade since Justice League: Unlimited wrapped up back in 2004. That is when animation artist Bruce Timm, and co-creator of the BTAS stepped down to head the DC Universe direct to DVD movies. But with it being Batman’s 75th Anniversary, Bruce Timm and Kevin Conroy (THE voice of Batman) have teamed up again for this quick short that celebrates the Batman we would have seen back in 1939! So enjoy this beautiful Film Noir-inspired animated short featuring Batman as he was originally envisioned, darker and colder, as he battles Hugo Strange battling over the fate of a young woman in Batman: Strange Days!
