UPI News Service, 12/06/2017
Batman takes on the likes of infamous serial killer Jack the Ripper in a new trailer for upcoming animated film, "Gotham by Gaslight."
The clip, released Tuesday, features Batman tracking down Jack the Ripper as he claims female victims from throughout Gotham City during the turn of the century.
Batman, who has a steampunk look, teams up with Selina Kyle, also known as Catwoman, who is unhappy with how police have handled Jack the Ripper and is ready to take matters into her own hands.
"Gotham needs the Batman. Every moment puts women in danger," Selina, voiced by Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter says to Bruce Wayne, voiced by Bruce Greenwood, who has been locked up by police who believe him to be the killer.
"While the world prepares to witness the glittery glory of Gotham's technological advances, there is a killer loose in the city's darkest shadows. Preying on the city's women, this killer is as precise as he is cruel. As Police Commissioner James Gordon tries to calm the fears of Gotham's citizens regarding the butcher called Jack the Ripper, the masked vigilante Batman enacts his own detective work - with the help of confident, capable Selina Kyle - to stop the Ripper's murderous spree. Witness a world in flames as the notorious serial killer's controlled savagery meets the calculated stealth of the Dark Knight," reads the synopsis.
