Batman: Gotham Knight is a 2008 anthology film of six short anime superhero films produced by Japanese animation studios Studio 4°C, Madhouse, Bee Train, and Production I.G in collaboration with DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation. Intended to be set in between the films Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008), the shorts depict Batman battling against the mob of Gotham City, as well as other villains. The producers have acknowledged that it is not necessarily meant to be canon to The Dark Knight Trilogy and any of the six segments could easily fall into almost any Batman continuity. The shorts, or segments, are written by Josh Olson, David S. Goyer, Brian Azzarello, Greg Rucka, Jordan Goldberg and Alan Burnett. Although all based on Japanese anime art style, each segment has its own writing and artistic style, just as the works from the DC Universe, and with the same style of The Animatrix although some segments are connected. All six films of the feature star Kevin Conroy, reprising his voice role as Batman from the DC animated universe.
