It's a slightly different Gotham city in the direct-to-DVD animated movie Batman: Gotham Knight. The city proves it deserves to be name-checked in the DVD's title, with some startling vistas including new and stranger gargoyles, weird searchlights and even a giant ferris wheel. The city of dark spires suddenly has a ton of personality. Check out a gallery, and find out whom Batman fights in the DVD's segments.

DC Comics Senior Vice President of Creative Affairs Gregory Noveck explains who is going to be appearing in this animated bat-film and why you'll love it.

The visuals of this film are amazing, particularly the unique perspectives of Batman and the detailed, intriguing visions of Gotham City. At the same time, fan favorite Kevin Conroy keeps Batman grounded in familiar territory with his renowned voice – as does the inclusion of both villains like Scarecrow and Killer Croc, and allies like Commissioner Gordon, Alfred, Lucius Fox and Crispus Allen of Gotham Central fame.
