It’s a lucky day for Lovecraft and DC fans alike. Warner Bros. Entertainment has dropped a trailer for Lovecraftian DC animated film Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham, as well as an official release date.
Inspired by the comic book series by Mike Mignola, Richard Pace and Troy Nixey, the film finds explorer Bruce Wayne accidentally unleashing an ancient evil, expediting his return to Gotham City after a two-decade hiatus. The logic/science-driven Batman must battle Lovecraftian supernatural forces threatening the sheer existence of Gotham, along the way being aided and confronted by reimagined versions of his well-known allies and enemies, including Green Arrow, Ra’s al Ghul, Mr. Freeze, Killer Croc, Two-Face, James Gordon and Bruce’s beloved wards. Prepare for a mystical, often terrifying Batman adventure unlike any other.
