UPDATE: Daily Feature AND front page!!! Wow. This is my first one. Something I've been working at for a long time. Thanks everyone for the great feedback and votes!

Also, a few of the rather constructive critical reviews have pointed out that the "running" shot looked a bit off. So I have touched it up and made it a bit smoother. Thanks for the reviews everyone. Keep em' comin'. I love feedback.

Well, where to begin...

I came up with the idea for this project shortly after seeing "The Dark Knight". I thought it would be cool to show how Batman handles the fact that he's become a fugitive. This was supposed to be a three month project but took about six. I wanted to combine elements of "The Dark Knight" and "Batman: The Animated Series". I also bought a draw pad (finally) so I could really get the illustrations down. It was illustrating the city that was the hard part. I actually built a clay model of the city so I could get all the perspectives right. No easy task.

Just so everyone knows, there's a "Return to Menu" button in the bottom left corner of the screen while to movie is playing. Just in case you can't see it.

I'd also like to thank all of my voice actors for helping me with this project. I think they really added alot to it.

And one more thing. I do not own the rights to any of the music used in this movie, nor do I claim to. It's all primarily from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

Anyway, ENJOY!!!

Minor observation: I notice that the Commissioner Gordon in this cartoon movie sounds like the Commissioner Gordon from The Batman 2004-2008 cartoon. Nice.

I also like how you emphasized the urban legend side of Batman.

five stars

Dialogue could've been just a bit better, their a pretty clumsy swat team if you ask me. But hey I guess their supposed to be like the cops from the Dark Knight movies, all cartoonish so in that respect i guess that can justify that..I turned out my room lights, dimmed the Newgrounds lights and really did enjoy this ! Took me a while to catch on to this being a sort of Dark Knight sequel but when I did I liked it all the more, awesome overall ! Keep it up

The wrinting is awesome,the animation is well paced and the voiceacting was realy good! 5 BATMANS out of 5!!!

Awesome also play DCuniverse.com
