DC has released a new trailer for their animated movie that will adapt the famous graphic novel, Gotham by Gaslight. As the title suggests, the movie (and graphic novel) will transport the mythology of Batman to the Victorian era. Gotham by Gaslight sees Bruce Wayne in an almost steampunk setting as Gotham is given a complete makeover but still manages to feel vaguely familiar.

Rather than having Batman hunt down any Victorian-esque takes on The Joker or Two-Face, Bruce Wayne will be hunting one of the most infamous serial killers of all time. This follows the same story of the acclaimed graphic novel by Hellboy creator, Mike Mignola. Still, there will be some classic Batman characters contained within the story outside of Bruce Wayne. The source material has Commissioner Gordon and Alfred in the story, and the film will also include their characters.
