Batman:The Doom That Came To Gotham, a new DC Animated film set in a 1920s “Elseworlds” Gotham City, is now available on VOD, Ultra 4K HD, and Blu-ray, and Cherry the Geek TV spoke to some of the cast and the film’s screenwriter at this year’s WonderCon.
Inspired by the comic book series by Mike Mignola, Richard Pace and Troy Nixey, Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham is a 1920s-based tale that 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.
