If you are like BLURPPY you can never get enough Batman. Take today for instance. I am sitting at my computer hitting ‘REFRESH’ a million times in the hope of getting the JC Richard’s Batcave print from Mondo that we wrote about earlier this week. Now comes this fresh new take on the Caped Crusader from Wolf Smoke Studio in Shanghai.
In their version Batman and Catwoman work together to take down Bane with the setting being 1930’s Shanghai. The duo was cool in The Dark Knight Rises and it is cool in this animation. Wolf Smoke Studio has created this animated short for Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block, a three-part short series called, “Batman of Shanghai,”. W.S.S. stepped outside the norm on this one and gave Batman some mystic powers, like the ability to turn into a swarm of bats for instance. Believe it or not, it comes across really cool.
Not to be outdone, Catwoman is deadlier than ever with her whip and impressive karate skills. Oh…and Bane is a hulking mass of destruction trying to retrieve the ‘Scroll of Destiny‘ and letting NOTHING get in his way. (Is it me or does the Scroll of Destiny sound like something from Kung Fu Panda?) Anyhow, check out the four minute short below and let us know what you think.
