First Look at Darwyn Cooke’s Batman Beyond
I am going to have to come clean. I am slowly being introduced to the wonderful DC Animated Universe. I’m not a girl who has always been into comics (or Sequential Art as I heard them termed the other day in Duke’s interview with the wonderful Nye Wright. You can listen to that here) . In all honesty, I am coming to the party very late!However, I have been lovingly introduced to them and so far, from what I’ve seen, I like them. Thus, it’s quite exciting when you spot an exclusive fifteen-second clip from the upcoming DC Nation short: Batman Beyond by Darwyn Cooke.
Cooke goes back to his roots with Batman Beyond. He previously worked for Warner Bros in animation, before moving on to create beautiful comic books like The New Frontier and adapt Richard Stark’s Parker. The animation is beautiful in this brief glimpse, Batman looks a little different with what seem to be orange eyes (a comic book reference I might be missing guys?) [Duke: Having just watched this again, I noticed that old-man Bruce Wayne is on the floor. Maybe this is a Bat-Robot?].
Those of you going to Wondercon this weekend in Anaheim will be able to see more. If you’re going, and you are lucky enough to see it, get in touch and let us know what you think!
Yes, it’s only 15 seconds, but it is worth it!
