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!!!

The art style?

It looks almost exactly like joe zombie. i cant rember exactly since that was like 10 years ago lol.this was pretty good, very athentic to the batman style,didnt really like the commisionrs voice though d-tec was pretty on point.this is one of so few things on newgrounds that really desrves a 5 star rating.
impressivley drawn

authentic to batmans style
when your not just saying "oh its nice,its funny, its good, but you can actually explain it. then it really is good

Christopher Nolan would be proud!


I'm a huge fan of the Nolan Era of Batman films and this is an amazing piece of work - it could easily fit perfectly between The Dark Knight and its upcoming sequel.

Love the Batman Logo at the beginning through the police lights - brilliant idea!

The voices are brilliant although during the last scene between the commissioner and the detective the scene around them seems very quiet - no sirens - no city noises - nothing.

But to be honest - that's a very minor point - I love how you payed homage to Gary Oldman's "...he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector, The Dark Knight." ending speech with one of your own and the punch from the theme at the start of the credits sent shivers down my spine like it does every time i watch the films.

Credit to every single one of you - AMAZING job!

That was really good. Anyone that gives this less than a 10 is clearly an idiot...

My goodness.

What an exceptional piece of work.

This deserves to be one of the greats on NG.

I can't believe that its score was just below 4 till I gave it a 5/5.
